The sE Electronics Reflexion Filter X or (RF-X for short) is the most affordable relfexion filter yet and still blows all of the copycats out of the water! The reason that copycats don't work as well as the real reflexion filter is that the copys tend to just be a single layer of foam against a hard backing board. The real RF-X has multiple layers (including an air gap) that are fine tuned for maximum conditioning with minimum colouration. That's the only way to get the perfect vocal sound every time!
What sE Electronics say about the RF-X:
Unwanted audio ambience may be generated if working in ‘untreated’ acoustic environments when recording and this naturally affects the quality of any signal captured via microphone. Six years ago sE Electronics were the first company to develop a solution to this commonplace problem and launched the highly successful Reflexion Filter RF-Pro. We are proud to announce that recently sE Electronics were awarded a US patent for the design standard and this applies to ALL sE Electronics Reflexion Filter products - including the brand new RF-X.
Patent No. US 8,191,678
With RF-X anyone can capture great-sounding vocal recordings anywhere.
Available today the sE Electronics RF-X is the latest high- performance acoustic filter joining sE’s highly-acclaimed line of successful and industry standard Reflexion Filter products. Using the same US patented design technology as the RF-Pro the new RF-X has been concieved to answer the needs of the discerning recording artist working on a budget. With a new lightweight body and re-designed lightweight clamp assembly the RF-X is simplicity itself, providing unbeatable performance and ease-of-use.
New materials have been developed to make it lighter than its predecessors but also to maintain it’s durability - helping to position RF-X as a versatile product suited for any challenging working environment. It features a four layer acoustic filter design comprising the outer composite panel itself, a wool fabric layer, an air gap layer and an inner acoustic foam layer. This multi-layer design with air gaps differentiates the RF-X from its competitors by helping to ensure that recordings exhibit almost zero sound coloration when using the filter.
The RF-X clamp assembly also utilizes a new lightweight design allowing it to be used on almost any microphone stand. It has been simplified to achieve this and allows vertical mounting only - making it the perfect solution for vocal recording. (We recommend the IRF2 for angled instrument miking, or the RF-Pro for specialized vocal mic positioning).
