CAD E100Sx Large-Diaphragm Supercardioid Condenser Microphone


The CAD E100Sx is a versatile microphone with a large-diaphragm condenser element that can be used to record a wide variety of sources including vocals, percussion, and acoustic instruments. This fourth-generation version of the E100 features a narrow supercardioid pickup pattern that focuses audio capture tightly in front of the mic, helping to reject unwanted background sounds and making it well suited to studio, voice-over, and podcasting applications.

The mic's sensitive 1" nickle-plated diaphragm has been engineered to provide accurate phasing for a full, rich vocal sound with a hint of vintage coloration and extended low-end response. An optional 100 Hz high-pass filter with a 6 dB per octave slope can be engaged to filter out those low frequencies, if you prefer. The E100Sx offers a 10 dB pad switch for use on louder audio sources, allowing the mic to handle up to 136 dB SPL. The included shockmount offers a low-profile appearance and absorbs vibrations to reduce rumbling noise, helping the sensitive, low-noise capsule to deliver detailed, nuanced recordings. A 48V phantom power source is required to power the condenser microphone element.
