The sE8 is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with impressively amazing sound. In the studio, or on the stage, the sE8 small-diaphragm condenser microphone impresses with its huge sound, professional features and outstanding performance second to none. Every capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned in our very own factory with highest attention to detail. The ultra-thin gold-sputtered diaphragm delivers an impressive transient response that enables to capture the smallest nuance of your recording. Optimized for superb linearity and natural sonics, the ultra-precision electrode ensures a very smooth and balanced frequency response.
Thanks to the sophisticated acoustic design with precision components, the off-axis response nearly frequency-independent and therefore avoids coloration in demanding applications. With a very short signal path, no ICs, and specially optimized Class-A electronics, the sE8 is one of the quietest microphones on the market, and by far the quietest microphone in its class. Moreover, the transformerless design enables excellent transparency and clarity. The completely new electronic design ensures a high dynamic range and a brilliant transient response without distortion
The switchable attenuation pad prevents overloading your preamp or mixer and provide extended dynamic range without compromises. Two switchable levels enable close-mic techniques for even the loud sources like brass instruments and snare drums. The integrated low-cut filters can be selected at either 80Hz or 160Hz. They help to eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise or compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques. The sE8’s all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise. Its high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
The sE8 comes complete with a windscreen to avoid wind noise and a robust mic clip with thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.
