Overview

Classic sound, by any standards. The sE2300 is the latest multi-pattern version of the award-winning 2200 condenser microphone that put sE Electronics on the map many years ago with its smooth, polished sound for vocals, voiceovers, and numerous instrumental applications. The cardioid version grew famous through use with world-class vocal artists like Amy Winehouse, and this multi-pattern version only increases its versatility, enhancing its usefulness for any instrument and reviving the spirit of the world’s most classic studio microphones.

Given the revered status of its predecessors, sE has remained true to the original capsule tonality, the custom-built transformer and class-A circuit topologies, so it’s still the same mic loved by a whole generation of engineers. State-of-the-art components and a shorter, optimized signal path provide even better noise performance & clarity; new pattern choices, pad & filter options increase its versatility; and the fit & finish has been updated with sE’s latest manufacturing techniques - but the sE2300 retains all the classic sound of the original.

Like the earlier models, the sE2300 is a high-quality condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio applications, from vocals and spoken word to acoustic instruments to drums and beyond. Thanks to its hand-crafted large-diaphragm true condenser capsule, shielded custom transformer and class-A circuitry (no ICs here!) it delivers pristine, flattering sound quality, exceptionally low noise, and an even, well-balanced frequency response.

Built like the world’s finest musical instruments, every sE2300 capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned in our very own factory in Shanghai - and unlike other microphones with backplate or electret designs, the sE2300 features a true externally polarized condenser capsule, and therefore delivers the best possible performance in every aspect.

Its carefully selected, discrete components ensure brilliant sound quality on any source. The sE2300’s design still avoids using any ICs (integrated circuits) and is built to excel – not to a standard. Low noise, consistent performance and high sensitivity is provided by state-of-the-art surface-mounted electronic components with extremely tight tolerances. Reviving the spirit of classic studio microphones, the sE2300’s transformer provides superb depth & weight to the overall sonic image, and the massively shielded metal housing ensures noise-free operation.

The electronics and two switchable attenuation pads provide a high dynamic range, with high sound pressure level (SPL) handling capability and exceptionally low-noise components. Two switchable low-cut filters eliminate rumble or footfall noise, and can also compensate for an excess of bass frequencies caused by proximity effect. This enables the sE2300 to close-mic even the loudest instruments, including electric guitar speaker cabinets, brass instruments and drums. Finally, the three-position pattern switch on the rear side of the microphone allows the sE2300’s polar pattern to be changed from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-eight. This allows for great control over the balance between direct and ambient sound.

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

The sE2300 also comes complete with sE’s Isolation Pack, consisting of a custom-made shock mount, integrated metal pop filter, and a thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.

Hand-crafted 1” true condenser capsule
Built like the world’s finest musical instruments, every capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned in our very own factory in Shanghai - and unlike other microphones with backplate or electret designs, the sE2300 features a true externally polarized condenser capsule, and therefore delivers the best possible performance in every aspect.

Three selectable polar patterns
The 3-position Pattern Switch is located on the rear side of the microphone, and allows the sE2300’s polar pattern to be changed from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-eight. This allows for great control over the balance between direct and ambient sound.

Traditional Class-A electronic design

Its carefully selected, discrete components ensure brilliant sound quality on any source. The sE2300’s design still avoids using any ICs (integrated circuits) and is built to excel – not to a standard. Low noise, consistent performance and high sensitivity is provided by state-of-the-art surface-mounted electronic components with extremely tight tolerances.

Two switchable attenuation levels
The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide variety of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars, fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums.

Custom-built output transformer

Reviving the spirit of classic studio microphones, the sE2300’s custom transformer provides superb depth & weight to the overall sonic image, and the massively shielded metal housing ensures noise-free operation.

Two switchable low-cut filters

Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, 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.

All-metal housing and premium finish

Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other affordable microphones, the sE2300's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.

Gold-plated XLR connector
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...

Standard accessories
The sE2300 also comes complete with sE’s Isolation Pack, consisting of a custom-made shock mount, integrated pop filter, and a thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.

The Isolation Pack
For situations where greater rumble control and ‘plosive protection is desired, this bundle also includes sE’s Isolation Pack. The quick-release mechanism at the base of this shock mount makes it easy to insert and remove a mic – no screws, no hassle, just one twist to secure or release. And the integrated metal pop filter can be vertically positioned to accommodate any compatible microphone, or completely removed from the shock mount if desired.
