sE Electronics V2 Switch Review
Welcome to yet another review of a brand-new mic that we just received from sE Electronics. In this review, we are going to talk about V2 Switch which is a dynamic multi-purpose microphone. Obviously, as you can notice from all the images in this article, this is a handheld microphone that is great for stage purposes.
We are going to dive a little bit deeper into the specifications of this microphone below, but now we just want to give thanks to the developer for sending us a model to review and share our opinion with the world.

V2 Switch Build and Design
First off I’m going to dive into the technical specifications in terms of build quality and the design of this microphone. On first look and touch, this microphone appears to be very sturdily built and it looks like it can take a lot of work in terms of durability and reliability on the road and for multiple purposes in the studio.
Something interesting that can be found on this microphone compared to the predecessors and other dynamic microphones from sE Electronics is the lockable switch that will ensure the microphone is turned on all the time by your decision.
Inside the mic, there is a super-cardioid capsule design that is polar pattern mainly great for stage usage, because it will ensure that there will be no extra sounds coming into it from the stage. When we move the microphone around and speak into it, the clearest outcome we got comes when we speak directly into the capsule. Once we move the microphone off the axis, the power of the signal in the quality significantly drops which is a proper spec for the super-cardioid capsule.
Also inside this microphone below the grill, there is an internal windscreen that is there to reduce all the unwanted noises and plosives. Since this microphone is not meant to be used in the studio and place a pop filter in front of it, every reduction of unwanted noises is appreciated. Since we do not know if we need to perform on a windy day or if the artist has some more apparent plosives into their vocals, this is a nice feature to have.
As stated by the developer, there is also an integrated shock mount into the microphone, that will help us to reduce handling noise and try to cut down any rumble that happens inside the microphone. This is another amazing feature that serves only for the quality of this microphone which is truly amazing.
When it comes to the connections, the microphone has the standard XLR connector which is gold-plated and it also guarantees that there will be no loss in connections and the microphone will be connected at all times without any troubles.
In terms of build materials, the microphone is created from all metal parts that are corrosion free, designed so it is truly worth having it on the road. There are also no plastic parts inside that might crack over time. Also, it feels very durable because it has a die-cast zinc alloy on it which ensures the longevity of this microphone.
The microphone comes in a neat cardboard box and inside you will be able to find the user manual, mic clip, and a pouch to carry the microphone around – and of course the microphone itself.
V2 Switch Sound
In terms of the sound production from this microphone, I’m also really satisfied with the outcome since the microphone gives a very intimate and warm sound. When you speak really closely into the capsule and use the proximity effect of the microphone, you will end up with a very bassy signal which is a characteristic of close proximity effect.
And when you take the microphone away from your mouth you will get a very clear signal that receives only the sound waves that are coming directly into its super-cardoid membrane.
As you can notice, this is a dynamic microphone, and as we already stated it is a super-cardioid polar pattern. In terms of the frequency range, it goes from 50 hertz up to 16,000 hertz, which is more than enough for a vocal range and stage usage.
When it comes to the output impedance, it operates at 630 ohms and it comes in black color usually. The mic is pretty light and it will not tire your arm – so we highly suggested it to everybody that is in need of a new handheld microphone for stage purposes, no matter if you use it for your vocal or to mic up some other elements of your band.
