sE Electronics sEX1 Contest
sE Electronics is organizing a contest, offering you a chance to win an sEX1 condenser microphone.
At the tail end of 2011, a group of producers, artists, engineers and press from all over the UK attended blind listening tests of four of the biggest condenser mic brands in the world (Neumann, AKG, Rode and sE Electronics).
The aim: to strip away consumer preconceptions created with decades of brand marketing, and compare mics based solely on their performance, their build quality and their feature set.
Find out how the sE X1, Rode NT1A, Neumann TLM 102 and APG P220 compared and answer the following question relating to this mic shoot out (answer is here in the blind listening test results) and you could win one of six sE Electronics X1 microphones. sE will be picking a winner every month from the virtual hat for the next 6 months i.e. February, March, April, May, June and July.
They will ask a question relating to the blind listening test on the first day of each month. If you answer any of the questions correctly, you are entered into the prize draw. If you choose to answer a question every month, you then improve your odds of winning as you will have more tickets in the virtual hat. That said, if you only enter once, you are still entered into all six sE X1 prize draws.
February Question: At which studio was the blind listening test held?
You can e-mail your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first winner will be announced on March 1st 2012.
