The sE2300 is the latest multi-pattern version of the fan-favourite 2200 condenser that put SE Electronics on the map many years ago with its smooth, polished sound for vocals, voiceovers, and numerous instrumental applications. Like its well-known predecessors, 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.

The electronics and the switchable attenuation pads ensure a high dynamic range, with high sound pressure level (SPL) handling capability and extremely low-noise components. The switchable low-cut filters eliminate rumble or footfall noise, and can also compensate for an excess of bass frequencies caused by the proximity effect. This enables to sE2300 to close-mic many instruments including electric guitar speaker cabinets, brass instruments and drums. The three switchable polar patterns also allow for the tailoring of the balance between direct and ambient sound, providing many options for various recording techniques.

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