  • 5Pop Filter
  • 6Cardioid Polar Pattern

The Shure SM7B Vocal Microphone is a dynamic microphone with a smooth, flat, wide-range frequency response appropriate for music and speech in all professional audio applications.

It features a cardioid polar pattern, bass roll-off and midrange emphasis (presence boost) controls, and shielding against broadband interference. An 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.

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

Cardioid polar pattern effectively isolates signal source improving gain before feedback.

Absolutely blown away!

Best podcasting/voice-over microphone ever! No background noise, even when people are loudly talking in the next room. The audio is so beautiful, that I hardly need to do any work retouching it. This has streamlined my workflow and saved me hours and hours of time.

B&H Done it again!!!

Great sound, and everything you need

The SM7B does a great job dampening low frequency sounds in noisy apartments, and the Cloudlifter more than gives you enough power to achieve clear vocals without any hum. Plus, two cables. Boom.

Finally, My Recordings Are Good

Not a professional, but I like to release the occasional YouTube video, and I wanted to do voice-overs. Started out with a Rode PodMic and a Moto M2. My voice sounded terrible! I wasn't sure where the problem was, so I tried adding a Cloudlifter; no luck. Next I swapped in the Shure SMB7, and that completely fixed the problem. FYI, I needed to keep using the Cloudlifter to get loud enough recordings. Finally, I am happy with my setup.

I got this microphone for a podcast I wanted to start. I put all the equipments together and it sounded amazing a very clear. I enjoyed getting this mic and the sound quality was better than expected.

I own a radio station and perform my shows on location with guests. I have 3 of the Shute SM-78s and the voice quality is fantastic. With the Cloudlifter kit, live on-air, podcasts and recordings with guests sounds amazing.

This is the mic to have if you're serious about professional recording. It's everything I hoped it would be and more.

Everyone says this is the best mic on the market. They're right as far as I'm concerned. The sound is awesome, creamy smooth, perfect for podcasting. You do have to re-position the bracket to use in a stand, as it comes set for a boom, but the YouTube video explained that well and made that a simple task.

Need a recommendation for a voice mic to use with an M BOX Mini currently using a SHURE PE 515, I also have a SHURE 545L which I have not tried. Or, if I get a Shure SM7B will I be able to use my Passport 150 Pro as a pre-amp for the M BOX Mini?
Asked by: Marshall
Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the M Box Mini or Passport 150 Pro, so I can't answer your question. I do know that you should also purchase a Cloudlifter to use with the SM7B Mic- it's an excellent combination!

Will this fit into, and be able to be used in conjunction with the Auray ISO-ARMOR-2 (BH# AUISOARMOR2)?
Asked by: arty
Probably not. Plus this is a dynamic mic and you'd want to use a confessor mic with the Auray ISO-ARMOR-2

I have a Mix Pre3 preamp; will I need a Cloudlifter to increase gain (to avoid buzz), or will the Mix Pre3 be fine on its own with the SM7B?
Asked by: Li m.z.b.
Yes, that's exactly what I use (and a TLM 103) for voice over work. Gotta have the boost.

Is this good for screams/yelling like heavy metal?
Asked by: zack
Hi Zack, Yes, the SM7B is a great mic for louder vocal applications due to its ability to handle higher sound pressure levels (SPL). Thank you
