Handcrafted True Condenser Capsule: -Gold-sputtered diaphragms ensure maximum reliability -Every capsule is handcrafted and individually tuned in our very own factory -Ultra-precision electrode design optimized for superb linearity and natural sonics -Ultra-thin 3 micron gold-sputtered diaphragm for superior transients -Newly-developed backplate design provides smooth, natural sound & truly consistent off-axis response -Sophisticated acoustic design with precision components -Avoids coloration in demanding applications The Quietest Pencil Mic In Its Class: -Sophisticated electronic design provides extremely low noise without the use of integrated circuits -Transformerless design for excellent transparency and clarity -Proven Class-A circuitry ensures a high dynamic range without distortion and brilliant transient response Two Switchable Pre-Attenuation Pads: -The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for brass instruments, snare drums, and more. Two switchable low-cut filters: -Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques. All-Metal Housing with Gold-Plated XLR Connector, Premium Finish & Accessories: -Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some small-capsule microphones, the sE8's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish and gold-plated XLR connector ensures a great look and a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years to come. -The sE8 also comes standard with a newly designed mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.
