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.

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.

Excellent Voice Quality

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.

An improved zoom setup

When the pandemic hit I had to use Zoom to talk to clients while I worked from home. I struggled for months with my PC's built-in low quality microphone. Keystrokes and washer/dryer noises were super loud in my audio. I finally decided to spend $$$ on a setup that better represents me professionally. Since this mic is popular with podcasters I knew it would meet my needs. The first benefit is the look. This mic is handsome and communicates that I was willing to spend some money on my setup. Second, it's spectrally complete; whether you need more lows or more highs, this mic gives your signal chain something to work with. One quirk of the SM7B is that it performs best with an ultra low noise preamp with 30 dB or more of clean gain. While there are cleaner, pricier options, the DBX286 has ample preamp gain and is more than clean enough for zoom meetings. The SM7B has a cardioid pattern, so sounds from behind the mic aren't picked up. By keeping my keyboard in this area (and using the noise gate on the DBX286) I was able to completely eliminate keystroke chatter from my audio feed. Finally, the output level of the DBX286 was a little hot for my sound card and caused clipping, so I switched to a Scarlet 2i2. While there may be more budget options available, I'm thrilled with how this setup looks and sounds. I get compliments on my audio quality.

Great mic

Great rich sound, especially when run through a good pre-amp as this thing is gain hungry. One complaint would be the placement of the xlr output, can make it difficult when using with some boom arms

This mic is beyond amazing. But make sure your buy a cloudlifter or some type of power to get its full potential.

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.
