Shure SM7B Vocal Microphone (Gray)
For Broadcasting, Podcasting, and Recording
The gray Shure SM7B is a vocal microphone with a smooth, flat, and wide-range frequency response appropriate for music and speech in professional audio applications. The mic's specially engineered dynamic capsule provides a smooth, polished vocal sound with a rich response in the lower frequency registers, making the mic a favorite choice among broadcasters and podcasters.
It features a cardioid polar pattern, bass roll-off and midrange emphasis (presence boost) controls, and shielding against broadband interference. Internal air-suspension shock isolation helps to eliminate mechanical noise transmission, and a yoke mount facilitates mounting and provides precise control of the mic position.
This microphone is part of the B&H Virtual Mic Locker, an online tool to help our valued customers determine the sonic differences between popular microphones for podcasting and voice over work. Each microphone was recorded using a Grace Design M103 preamp into a Presonus Quantum 2626 interface.
Flat, Wide-Range Frequency Response
The flat-frequency response enhances the midrange and high frequencies that are associated with the human voice.
Rejection of Electromagnetic Hum
Improved rejection of electromagnetic hum—optimized for shielding against broadband interference emitted by computer monitors.
Air Suspension Shock Isolation
Internal air-suspension shock isolation virtually eliminates mechanical-noise transmission.
Pop Filter
The detachable close-talk windscreen eliminates the need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds—even for close-up vocals or narration.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The classic cardioid pickup pattern is designed to reject off-axis audio, so you can sing or speak at a comfortable angle. And, it captures the sound with minimum coloration, isolating the signal source helps to reduce feedback issues.
Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator
The Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator from Cloud Microphones is a compact, single-input solution for common audio problems in the field and in the studio involving low-output passive microphones, including ribbon mics. The CL-1 uses any standard phantom-powered mixer or microphone input device to provide up to +25 dB of clean, transparent gain. This improves signal-to-noise ratio and improves the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. The CL-1 is housed in a rugged steel enclosure which offers shielding and durability. Additionally, the CL-1 has provisions for stage or stand mounting.
Transparent Gain
Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output and keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors. The CL-1 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source
Useful for a Variety of Applications
  • Use with noisy or low-gain preamps
  • Use with mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain settings
  • Use with low-output dynamic microphones and ribbons
  • Mic softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
  • Use for long cable runs
Features at a Glance
  • Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output
  • Provides 2 distinct stages of clean gain
  • Easy to use self-contained design requires only phantom power
  • Recommended for use with all passive dynamic microphones
  • Compatible with tube, battery, or power-supply-driven microphones  
  • Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantom
  • Utilizes Patent Pending Class-A, discrete JFET circuitry
  • Ideal impedance loading for optimal performance at 3 kilohms
  • Rugged, road ready, and portable, for studio, stage, and broadcasting
Auray BAI-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs and Integrated XLR Cable

The Auray BAI-2X is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2X broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2X allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2X also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

Recent purchase but already living up to the hype. A super versatile mic for many applications.

I use these or the EV RE-20 mics. I like both, but I think these look better on camera. They sound awesome.

I got this to improve the voiceovers on my YouTube videos, but it also works well for video calls. Requires a little more hardware than a simple USB microphone, but I feel like it's an investment that I should be able to hold on to for years to come. It's pretty heavy, so make sure you have a good stand for it! It also requires a lot of amplification to pick up the audio, but paired with a good audio interface it can really shine.

Great mic with one minor flaw

By Jared

Using this mic almost daily. It's been a great improvement over my previous setup. The only complaint is you'll need a pre-amp that is capable of boosting the output of this mic. The Focusrite devices here on B&H don't quite have enough gain to do so.

SM7B is buttery smooth

Firstly I need to thank BH Photo for their outstanding customer service. Bought this and wasn't crazy about it at first and they made the return easy and were awesome. Saw a needed a preamp and also used better headphones and I can definitely hear a difference. The audio is nice and bass-filled but not overbearing bass. Note: the first time I bought it I did not use the better headphones for some reason and still thought it sounded great, it is an investment of course so I did get cold feet. Built like a tank, the shock mount works great and the two pop filters give you some variety in your sound. I use the larger one for spoken word but the standard one works just fine. Plosives and Sibilance are well under control with this one. Mics like the Yeti, and MV7 are great mics, and I do think we get to a diminishing returns point, but this mic will last you many, many years and the quality is smooth and great for all-around usage.

Great setup

Shure SM7B is a fantastic mic - excellent background noise rejection, w/ low self-noise the bundle saves me having to get a swing arm and XLR cable.

Standard for podcasting

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5

I travel with these for clients' podcast recordings. Very generous mic that sounds good with most voices. Very warm/flat. I slightly prefer the RE20 to the Shure SM7b for the more controlled proximity effect, but the RE20 can sound harsh on some voices. The SM7b is more natural sounding - which gives it a slightly better tone for podcasts IMO. My clients tend to like that this mic purely because they've seen it used by very prominent podcasters/influencers.

Nothing Better

I've used lot's of recording mics. AKG cardoid, Yeti mic, and rode mics. This is the best mic I've ever used for podcasting. Great tone. Will be buying a second one soon.

Would you be able to recommend how to set up the Behringer ULTRAGAIN PRO MIC2200 2-Channel Tube Microphone Preamplifier/Line Driver/DI Box with a Shure SM7B Cardioid Dynamic Broadcast Microphone to a computer? I have the mic and preamp but need a new computer to interface with. Any suggestions for this combo? Thanks!!!
Asked by: Brendan
For best results, this preamp should be connected to a computer using a USB audio interface. The Focusrite 2i2 is a solid choice that is compatible with both Mac and PC. The unit features front panel line inputs that can accept the outputs of both of the Behringer preamp outputs and will be compatible with virtually any recording software.
