For Broadcasting, Podcasting, and Recording
The 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. 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.
SM7B Samples from Audio Test Kitchen
  • B&H is proud to be partnering with Audio Test Kitchen, the world’s most comprehensive online audio product comparison platform, to improve the resources provided to our customers shopping for the right microphone for their given application.
  • This provides you with the ability to listen to a growing selection of microphones with spoken word recordings captured in a standardized environment, with levels matched by the talented engineers at Audio Test Kitchen in its impressive reference studio.
  • Audio Test Kitchen records microphones under identical conditions so you can compare them, apples to apples. The source, signal chain, and level never change. The only differences you will hear are between the microphones.
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 pick-up 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.

Shure SM7B Reviews

SM7B is buttery smooth

By Billy
Rated 5 out of 5

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.

Perfect

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.

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

Excellent - as advertised

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.

B&H Done it again!!!

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.

It's the SM7B

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)?

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?

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
