The X1 A: It could be your first mic, but it's one you'll want to keep forever.

There's a new entry point to sE's acclaimed X1 Series, and it's breaking the performance barrier (again) for every mic in its class. When it was introduced in 2011, the X1 brought a new level of quality to its price point, competing easily with microphones costing several times as much. But that didn't stop sE from trying to outdo themselves again.

With a newly-developed condenser capsule and an exterior based on the rugged metal chassis of the X1, the X1 A offers first-class sound & specifications at an even better "home studio" cost, featuring an extremely natural frequency response, massive SPL-handling capabilities (150dB!), switchable attenuation and low-cut filters, and a perfectly balanced sensitivity level - so it's at home on absolutely any source.

Features:
• All-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
• Integrated windscreen eliminates the need for an external pop filter, and provides an extra layer of safety and security for the all-important capsule.
• X1 A's new condenser capsule design is a work of art, delivering stellar sonic performance on any source with incredible speed, accuracy, and well-balanced frequency response.
• -20 dB pad switch on the left provides extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments.
• 100 Hz low-cut switch helps eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, and compensates for excessive bass with close-mic techniques (proximity effect).
• Gold-plated XLR connector ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years.
• Comes complete with a rock-solid, newly designed swivel mic clip and thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.

I like what it says on the box: This could be your first mic but you'll never want to replace it. I definitely agree since it was my first mic. A friend of mine strongly recommended it to me and I would to anyone.
