Get a great sound on spoken vocals and acoustic instruments with the Shure MOTIV MV5, a mobile microphone than can plug straight into your computer or iOS device. Whether you're podcasting, singing, playing guitar, or chatting over VoIP, the MV5 will give you a great sound, thanks to its high-quality 48 kHz / 24-bit recording capture and cardioid polar pattern, which minimizes unwanted room noise.

This mic, styled in gray with black foam, is perfect for anyone who records on their computer one day and their iPhone the next. Whichever device you pair and power it, simply plug it in with the included USB cable, set it up on the supplied stand, plug your favorite headphones into the 3.5mm jack, and get started. The mic will work with your favorite DAW or mobile app, but for an extra-customized experience, use the free ShurePlus MOTIV Mobile Recording or ShurePlus MOTIV Mobile Video apps for editing and sharing your media.

Note:
Please note, this Shure MOTIV MV5 is sold in the old packaging. That is the only difference between this item and the other MOTIV MV5 on this site presented in this color.

Tabletop Recording in Any Locale

Take this mic from your home studio to the hotel room—just set it up on a table, plug it in, and get started recording. With the built-in stand, it's easy to set up anywhere. Want to use a different mic stand? No problem: the mic uses standard threading to work with other mounts and tripods. And, with lightning and USB cables included, you can pick and choose your recording device at will.

High-Quality Audio

The mic captures high-quality 48 kHz / 24-bit audio, making it suitable for use in professional applications. Also, the highly directional cardioid polar pattern will help tamp down unwanted room noise and ambience.

Built-In Monitoring & DSP

Use the built-in headphone jack to monitor the recording in process over your favorite pair of headphones. Also, note that the mic has three built-in DSP presets: Voice, Flat, and Instrument. Voice and Instrument apply EQ and compression best suited to the task. Flat leaves your vocals alone, so you can process them later.

Handy Companion Software

The ShurePlus MOTIV audio app gives you the ability to record studio-quality audio—and so much more. Trim and share in multiple formats, all with a few quick taps. Recording video? Use the MOTIV Video App.

Hi, I purchased this microphone after reading reviews and thought it would be great for my ipad and field work with iphone. However i wanted to use it while teaching my yoga class, setting the ipad on tripod and connecting microphone near ipad. However the microphone barely worked when I was 10 feet away teaching. Does this microphone not have the capability of being used out of direct mouth to microphone range? If so, its not what I expected. Thanks
Asked by: candace
The MV5 is not intended to be used from 10 feet away. You would be better off using a shotgun style mic like the Rode VideoMic Me-L (B&H # ROVMMEL) which is specifically for use with iOS devices that have Lightning connectors or the VideoMicro (B&H # ROVIDEOMICRO) which can be used with adapters or a 3.5mm to Lightning cable. We do have other similar shotgun style mics that will work much better to pickup audio from a distance. Please feel free to contact us by phone or through live chat on the website and we can help you to select the best option to fit your budget.

It is written that this microphone, Shure MV5, has Gain adjustment 0 +36 dB. Please, explain how that feature can be used? I do not see any volume control, for example, on the microphone.
Asked by: David
The volume control dial on the microphone is for the headphone level. The mic gain can be adjusted in the computer, or by using the ShurePlus MOTIV Video App.
