Excellent value for money

Natural sounding quality mikes at budget price. Much improved stereo bar is much longer than the original SE1 so allows for greater choice of stereo configuration. Quiet enough for gentle acoustic recordings but also were able to withstand a four piece trombone section at full blast. Only improvement would be to add dB and bass cut switches but at this price...

I have a Rode NT1 and decided to get a stereo pair of SE1a's.

Compared to the Rode, these mikes have slightly more noise and a theoretical higher cut off on the bottom end - difficult to detect though, as my monitors only go down to 40 Hz !

The sound of these mikes is beautiful, Im very happy with them.So far Ive used them for location ambience, vocal and guitar work. They sound brighter to my ears but I like that.

They always need phantom 48V which might be limiting for some people - Rode NT3's will work with a 9V battery but then they are in the next price bracket up.

SE1a's have a good sound and came with a stereo mounting bracket and sturdy storage case.

Great for the price.

One of the best choices in the price range at least for the acoustic guitar. These microphones have a tone of their own. They are bright, a bit warm, not crispy and they don't have detailed middle like some more expensive microphones have. For some, the bottom might be a problem, but these don't capture much of that boxy room character. For me, the overall tone works as SE1A's have nice character. If you need to capture the tone of your instrument exactly, you'll have to invest (much much) more to the microphones.

These are not the smallest small condensers but they are easily placeable. It comes with the clamp, but I've not tested as I have K&M double clamp. The matching of the microphones were done well at the factory. Case included, nice.
