Fit for any challenge in the studio or on stage, the sE8 is a brand new high-performance handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser, fresh from the labs at sE. Its new hand-made capsule implements a sophisticated backplate design that provides a perfectly balanced sound, so it's never harsh or aggressive - perfect for sources like high-hats and drum overheads. It's also one of the quietest small-capsule mics on the planet - and with the highest dynamic range and SPL handling in its class, along with attenuation pads and low-cut filters for superb flexibility, the sE8 is ready for any sounds you're making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.

• Gold-sputtered diaphragms ensure maximum reliability
• Every capsule is handcrafted and individually tuned in sE's very own factory
• Ultra-precision electrode design optimized for superb linearity and natural sonics
• Utra-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
• 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
• 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) help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
• All-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise 
• High-quality finish and gold-plated XLR connector ensures a great look and a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years to come.
