Overview

Small-diaphragm condenser mic with attenuation and bass roll-off.

The sE7 is a high-quality, back-electret small-diaphragm condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio and live sound applications. This is a matched pair of sE7s, whose precise matching process makes them an ideal choice for stereo miking environments and other two-mic applications. They sound great with acoustic guitars, pianos, drums and more. With an optimized acoustic design, discrete class-A circuitry and a transformerless output, they delivers clear, natural sound quality at all frequencies, without suffering from fizzy highs or a lack of low-frequency punch.

The discrete electronics and the switchable attenuation pad ensure a high dynamic range, with high sound pressure level (SPL) handling capability and extremely low-noise components. The switchable low-cut filter helps eliminate rumble or footfall noise, and can also compensate for an excess of bass frequencies caused by the proximity effect. This enables the sE7 to close-mic many instruments including electric guitar speaker cabinets, brass instruments and drums.

Reliable operation even in demanding on-stage applications in difficult environments is ensured by the roadworthy all-metal design, robust construction and high-quality manufacturing standards.

High-quality condenser capsule
The sE7’s specialized capsule is designed for natural, balanced sound quality, with an ultra-thin diaphragm for excellent transient response. Its cardioid polar pattern also makes it ideal for most studio or stage applications, delivering great sound for almost any source.

Extremely quiet
With a very short signal path and state-of-the-art electronics, the sE7 is arguably the quietest microphone in its class. The transformerless design ensures pristine sound quality, reproducing instruments with excellent clarity and depth.

Switchable pre-attenuation pad
The switchable -20dB attenuation pad prevents overloading your preamp or mixer and provides extended dynamic range, enabling close-mic techniques for even the loudest sources like brass instruments and snare drums.

Switchable low-cut filter
The integrated 80Hz low-cut filter helps to eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, or to compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

All-metal housing and premium finish
The sE7’s all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise, and its high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.

Gold-plated XLR connector
The corrosion-free XLR contacts ensure a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...

Factory-matched stereo pair
Convincing stereo recordings require microphones with high consistency and accurate localization from the pair of microphones. Therefore, at sE every pair is selected from hundreds of individual microphones to provide identical performance. The result is the highest possible correlation over the whole frequency range, and virtually identical sensitivity for stunning three-dimensional recordings.

Standard accessories
The sE7comes complete with a windscreen to avoid wind noise and a robust mic clip with thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.
