Shure SM7B Overview

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.

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
