Based on the highly acclaimed sE8 cardioid pencil condenser, sE now offers an omnidirectional option. Featuring the very same, sophisticated capsule backplate design and true condenser technology, the sE8 omni provides an authentic and transparent sound quality second to none.

Designed for stereo recording, the sE Electronics sE8 omni Matched Pair gives you two pencil condenser microphones with hand-crafted, gold-sputtered condenser capsule. As with all of sE's true condensers, the sE8 omni's ultra-thin gold-sputtered diaphragm delivers an impressive transient response that enables capturing even the smallest of nuances, and the ultra-precision electrode is optimized for superb linearity and natural sound, ensuring a consistently smooth and balanced frequency response.

As one of the quietest microphones on the market - and by far the quietest microphone in its class, the transformerless design enables excellent transparency and clarity. Completely new electronic design also ensures a beyond-the-norm dynamic range and excellent transient response without distortion. 

The sE8 omni'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.

Every pair is hand-crafted and carefully selected to ensure the best possible performance. With the lowest noise and highest SPL capability in its class, the sE8 omni is the perfect choice for demanding applications like recording orchestras, ensembles and choirs but equally good for solo instruments, vocals and percussion.

The sE8 omni Matched Pair comes complete with two windscreens to avoid wind noise and two robust mic clips with thread adapters to fit with any mic stand. Moreover, a precision stereo bar and a robust, high-quality metal case is included.
