sE Electronics sE4400a Condenser Mic Review / Test

Today we look at the sE Electronics sE4400a, an AKG C414 competitor that offers 4 polar patterns, 2 pad options, and 2 high pass filter options. This thing has a neutral frequency response on the cardioid polar pattern with a subtle treble and air boost of about 1.5-2dB. I think this microphone is a very versatile microphone that will be an invaluable tool for any microphone locker.

Buy the sE 4400a (Amazon)

Buy the Focusrite 2i2 (2nd Gen) (Amazon)
