Audio specialist Sennheiser is expanding its microphone portfolio with the wired XS 1 dynamic microphone. This rugged, entry-level mic brings Sennheiser quality to applications ranging from solo vocals to choir miking and speech. The cardioid XS 1 offers well-defined sound with an excellent presence in the mix. It is fitted with a lockable Mute switch and comes complete with a stand mount and leatherette pouch. The XS 1 will be available from November, and will be sold in Latin America, Asia (with the exception of Japan), Russia and the Middle East.
“The XS 1 is your ticket to great vocal sound,” says product manager Dennis Stegemerten. “No matter whether you are presenting, hosting an event, or singing – the XS 1 will be a reliable and versatile partner.”
The XS 1 features balanced, full-bodied sound with a slight emphasis on the treble, which ensures that vocals will easily cut through high on-stage sound levels. Its cardioid pick-up pattern provides additional isolation from unwanted sound and great feedback rejection. The capsule is shock-mounted to minimise handling noise, while the mic’s frequency response (55 to 16,000 Hz) filters out any structure-borne low-frequency noise.
The XS 1 provides great ease of use, with a silent Mute switch that puts users in full control of their sound transmission. Whenever the switch is not needed, it can be securely locked in the “On” position. The microphone has been designed to be rugged enough to take on a life of performing – with an all-metal body and a hardened sound inlet basket to protect its capsule.
The XS 1 cardioid dynamic microphone is delivered with a stand mount and a leatherette pouch for transport.
