Designed for precision stereo recording, the sE Electronics sE8 omni Matched Pair gives you two factory-matched sE8 omni microphones in one convenient package. The sE8 omni is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with a hand-made, gold-sputtered omnidirectional capsule. Suitable for recording individual instruments, ensembles, or an entire orchestra, the sE8 omni has been engineered to provide a balanced, transparent, and natural sound as well as a detailed transient response. With two microphones matched specifically for consistency, you'll be able to capture a clear and accurate stereo image.
The sE8 omni boasts inherently low self-noise for meeting the demands of high-resolution digital recording. It also accommodates a max SPL high enough to handle drums, and a dynamic range large enough to record triple-piano to triple-forte velocities accurately. Signal quality can be optimized via onboard switches for the pad and low-cut filter, each equipped with two settings other than flat. To enhance durability—and to reject electrical interference and noise—the sE8 omni utilizes an all-metal chassis. The gold-plated XLR output connector ensures signal reliability for a long time to come.
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.
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.
