A big thing for speech

The Shure SM7B is a dynamic moving coil microphone with a fixed cardioid characteristic that is ideal for recording speech and vocals, but it also does a great job when miking instruments. A wide, linear frequency range ensures natural reproduction of voices and instruments. A pneumatic shock-absorbing mount and sophisticated shielding prevent mechanical and broadband electromagnetic interference of any kind from affecting the recordings, so you’re all set to record without anything getting in the way!

Warm and natural recording sound

The frequency response of the Shure SM7B is ideal for speech and vocals, and this is reflected in the recording quality. The exceptionally natural sound and smooth warmth which this microphone imparts to recordings are magnificent. Additionally, the switchable bass roll-off and “mid boost” provide further options to create a unique sound and give voices enhanced presence. When recording instruments, the SM7B performs just as well: Recording guitar and bass amps, drums and percussion, or wind and string instruments – nothing is a problem thanks to the truly brilliant sound.

Also a hit with instrumentalists

The Shure SM7B has a number of advantages that make it ideal for use as a speaker’s microphone – first and foremost being its natural reproduction of voices. Newsreaders and radio presenters, podcast producers, Youtubers, and singers should all take a closer look at the SM7B when choosing a suitable microphone. Nevertheless, guitarists, drummers, and wind and string instrument players will also find this microphone to be a high-quality companion for recording their favourite sound source.

About Shure

The American company Shure began developing microphones during the early 1930s and is one of the pioneers of the audio engineering sector. Models such as the 55 Unidyne - known to many as the "Elvis microphone" - and the SM57 and SM58 which appeared in the mid-1960s are still ubiquitous in live sound production today. They enjoy cult status among musicians and technicians alike. In the 1990s, Shure introduced the first wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems and became a market leader in this field. In addition to microphones, Shure offers a wide range of earphones and headphones for studio and live use, as well as various accessories.

Recording, no matter where

The Shure SM7B is rugged enough to withstand damage and interference, which means it can be used even in unfavourable conditions. For example, the strong aluminium body and mesh grille prevent damage if the microphone is dropped or gets hit by a drumstick. Thanks to its efficient shielding, the microphone can be used even in the immediate vicinity of electrical devices like computer monitors. This means that even “streaming” gamers can enjoy interference-free recordings. The included wind shield also prevents annoying breathing sounds from finding their way into the recordings.

the best microphone ever
mrtullball 04.04.2022
this is mabye one of the best microphones on the marcet. i bought this as my seccond microphone ever. im so happy that i bought it, i loved the sound i got after taking some time with the eq. and the build quality is great, without the shock mount it does not picup the bumping soundt from a table or from the boomarm.

more spesific

the sound you hear on radio or podcast, is not the sound that comes out of the box. if some one on youtube or any website says that the sm7b has a bad sound, they are wrong. becouse then they dint touch the eq or they dint buy the rigt audio interface. and they just lost the main pourpuse of the sm7b, because every big podcaster, streamer, radio use eq to get the perfect sound. but the shure sm7b needs a lot of gain, and if you lift up the gain with a cloud lifter you are doing it wrong because its making a bacround hizz. so if youre going to buy this mic, buy the rigt audio interface with it. most of the sound is in the aoudio interface, i cant say this too much. its a mic many peple can use for everythin like podcast, radio, streaming and singing. absolutly everyone can fall in love with this mic. you just need to ind your need for it.


Just as expected

Great sound. Pretty heavy and well made, I'm not afraid for the transportation. Maybe a preamp or a better audio card (I have UR 22 mk2) with higher input level would be a great addition to this mic, still not having any hissing sounds or any troubles at all with level set on max. Not much to say about features - there are none but let's be honest if you buy this microphone you don't need any other sound patterns.
Don't expect the sound quality go sky high if you have a lower priced mic - I had my AKG P120. For multimedia tasks or even some youtube videos it would be more than enough or Presonus PD-70 if you're looking for dynamic mic. This mic just gives you more options for sound processing and other things such as scream vocals. Don't waste money on this one if you are a youtuber or streamer


Definitely a must have!

Actually another review is not required, because everything was already said about this mic. Check google :)) The only remark - if somebody says this microphone is not good enough then he/she is definitely wrong! ItÔÇÖs an excellent mic. I really like bass filter and high mids boost option. Very convenient and helpful. Do not forget to have a preamp powerful enough to handle low gain signal or use a mic booster between the mic and your preamp.


An industry leader that continues to excel
Audio geek 09.05.2021
We had a complete studio rebuild over the last lockdown Christmas (in the UK) and I specified the SM7B as a solution to our less that acoustically silent studios. We're based in a very large community centre albeit on the very end of the building but have occasional 'background' noise from within the building (dance studios) and large windows in the room with some residential traffic noise from outside. It's not as bad as it sounds but any large diaphragm condenser would be ingesting this noise like a sponge so we had to look at a practical solution. Given the SM7B is large diaphragm dynamic we benefit from all of the goodness of close proximity voice work with a workable rolloff to be able to gate the extraneous noise from being picked up. Add some compression to the captured audio and the resulting broadcast VLs are solid and perfectly audible without hearing the unwanted noise in broadcast. We can't avoid some unwanted noise behind an open link but the SnR ratio in this respect is more than acceptable. We even managed to avoid having yards of acoustic dampening and designed some very aesthetic frames with four sponge pieces to hang nearby to quash odd reflection. The SM7B solves so many issues just by taking it out of the box you can see why Bruce Swedien loved it so much.

This mic is often adopted by the 'podders mainly for its looks and they love having it pride of place which is fair but despite it needing a kick of gain one should listen very carefully to the results and spend some time tuning it to find the sweet spot for your environment. I honestly think once you've found that spot you could put any talent you can find in front of this mic and they'd sound perfect. As an experiment I've done my setting up and capped off all of the EQ and gains controls on the desk. Our diverse range of presenters in the week are known fiddlers but now they all sound superb with nothing more than a fader to open and close the channel. EQ/processing settings? Desk is an Alice Series A, 100Hz rolloff, a -2dB cut at 4kHz and about 1.5dB boost at 10kHz, flat otherwise. Compression is inserted pre-fade at 3:1 soft knee from -18dB upwards (Berry MDX4600).

Less is always more and confidence speaks volumes if you believe in what you're doing. Ears are the best measuring tool and our listeners are a discerning bunch!
