SE Electronics SE8-OMNI-PAIR-U Small-Diaphragm Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone (Pair)

The SE Electronics SE8-OMNI-PAIR-U is professionally Designed for having a precision stereo recording, the sE Electronics sE8 omni Matched Pair is created for giving you two factory-matched sE8 omni microphones all in just one convenient package. The sE8 omni is made as a small-diaphragm condenser microphone that comes along with a hand-made, gold-sputtered omnidirectional capsule. It is created suited for use for recording individual instruments, ensembles, or an entire orchestra, the sE8 omni has been engineered intended for providing a balanced, transparent, and natural sound as well as a detailed transient response. It comes along with two microphones matched specifically for having consistency, you'll be able to capture a clear and accurate stereo image.

The sE8 omni is boasting inherently low self-noise intended for use in meeting the demands of high-resolution digital recording. It also capable of accommodating a max SPL high enough for handling the drums, and a dynamic range large enough for recoding triple-piano to triple-forte velocities accurately. Signal quality is possible to be optimized with the use of an onboard switches for the pad and low-cut filter, each comes equipped along with two settings other than flat. For enhancing the durability—and for rejecting electrical interference and noise—the sE8 omni is utilizing an all-metal chassis. The gold-plated XLR output connector is made capable of ensuring the signal reliability for a long time to come.

Omnidirectional True Condensers
Based on the highly acclaimed sE8 cardioid pencil condenser, sE proudly offers an omnidirectional option with the sE8 omni. Featuring the very same sophisticated capsule backplate design and true condenser technology, the sE8 omni provides an authentic and transparent sound quality.

Every pair is handcrafted and carefully selected in the sE factory to ensure the best possible performance. With the low self-noise and ultrahigh SPL capability, the sE8 omni is the perfect choice for demanding applications like recording orchestras, ensembles, and choirs as well as solo instruments, vocals, and percussion.

Handcrafted Capsules
Every capsule is handcrafted and individually tuned in the sE factory with the highest attention to detail. The ultrathin gold-sputtered diaphragm delivers an impressive transient response that enables capturing even the smallest of nuances. With an ultra-precision electrode, the sE8 omni is optimized for superb linearity and natural sound, ensuring a consistently smooth and balanced frequency response.

Low Self-Noise
Sophisticated electronic design and specially optimized Class-A electronics provide extremely low noise without the use of integrated circuits. The transformerless design enables excellent transparency and clarity, and a completely new electronic design also ensures a beyond-the-norm dynamic range and excellent transient response without distortion.

Two-Position Pad
The -10 and -20 dB switchable attenuation pad prevents overloading your preamp or mixer and provides extended dynamic range without compromises. Two switchable levels enable close-mic techniques for even the loudest sources like brass instruments, timpani, and drums.

Low-Cut Filters
Selectable at either 80 or 160 Hz, 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.

Quality Construction
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some small-capsule microphones, the sE8 omni's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise. The high-quality finish and gold-plated XLR connector ensures a great look and a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years to come.

Matched Pair
As with all sE factory-matched pairs, every mic ending up in an sE8 omni Stereo Pair configuration is meticulously hand-selected after strict evaluation by trained ears and the latest analysis tools, with measurements taken in an anechoic chamber to ensure the highest possible mic-to-mic consistency.

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 are included.
