Built by hand.
Like the world's most well-known and beloved vintage recording equipment, sE's Reflexion Filters and microphones are designed, developed, manufactured, and strictly tested at their very own factory.
Even the condenser mic capsules and ribbon elements are built by hand - almost unheard of for microphones at this price point, but vital for a high-performance microphone.
sE is also the first-ever microphone manufacturer to partner with legendary designer Mr. Rupert Neve, to create their highly-acclaimed flagship Rupert Neve Signature Series microphones.
Used by pros all over the world.

If you value detail, clarity across all frequencies (20Hz to 20kHz and beyond), and fidelity of the highest order, you need a large-diaphragm condenser. Other types of mics can accomplish great things, but nothing beats an LDC for the most pristine, "larger-than-life" capture of a sound source.
For instrument close-miking, pianos, and drum overheads, a small-diaphragm condenser provides the sharp detail you need for an accurate picture within your soundstage. These capsule diaphragms react much faster than their larger counterparts, lending an unmatched sense of immediacy to transient response - vital for percussive instruments.
Ribbon mics have been around since the early days of radio, and are often used for a thicker, more "vintage" sound. However, with thoroughly modern technologies and materials, sE has developed a range of mics that don't suffer from the lack of high-frequency detail plaguing most ribbons, so you can keep all the ribbon midrange magic without sacrificing your highs.
If you're a singer who performs anywhere outside the studio, a hand-helddynamic microphone is usually your best choice for rugged, reliable, consistent sound. sE's V Series dynamics have the lowest handling noise in their class, are built like tanks, and have specially-tuned capsules for stellar sound on the road for singers & instruments alike.
