  • 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.

Shure SM7B Reviews

Clear recording

By Heather
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-18

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.

It's the legend

What else can we say that hasn't been said? It's the legendary microphone, and you'll absolutely love it. If you're worried about the price, there are alternatives that come close for less, but if you have to have it, you're probably not reading reviews anyway!

Microphone 5, arm not so much

By Shaun
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-11

Microphone lives up to its name and reputation. Awesome capture ability, suppresses the plosions, and ambient noise very well. The quality was really really good. I was disappointed in the arm. I would have rather foregone the arm and bought a separate one. The extension is flimsy, the action in the arm is extremely stiff and the built in xlr cable seems to me to problematic should it fail, which would sink the purpose of the embedded cable/arm for me.

Industry Standard for a reason

By Todd
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-08

I bought this mic because it is widely considered an industry standard for voiceover work, and it doesn't disappoint. For my voice, it adds a nice authoritative low-end without being boomy, and with the additional windscreen on it, reduces some naturally occurring sibilance on my voice, and gives me a great recording with barely any EQ needed. The only downside to this mic is the need for a hefty pre-amp or something like the Cloudlifter, since it produces a quieter signal.

Excellent Voice Quality

By William

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

By Joel
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-29

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

By Paul

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

AMAZING!!

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

question

whats the best mic pre amp compressor to use ?
Asked by: Scotty M.
Preamp and compressor quality and sound is highly subjective. The SM7B seems to require a significant amount of gain for best results. The Grace M101 is a popular choice to pair with the SM7B and provides clean high gain. <a href= http://bhpho.to/1wR5Lnf target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1wR5Lnf</a>

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.

question

I have this microphone (Shure SM7B) - connected via an XLR cable/connector to a 28s pream/processor, then - from there via an xlr/cable connector into the XLR receptical (Mic1) into a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 - USB Audio Interface box - then into the PC via a USB connector from the Focusrite (which I use just for the interface to the PC). I can't seem to get enough power out of the microphone for the levels to be at a normal (-12db) level in my recording software (Audition, and/or Captivate 8). I leave all of the processing in the 286 off... and just use the preamp phantom power feed to the microphone of 48v, with a 3/4 of total gain, then I also added gain at the Scarlite USB interface redbox. Still not enough to hear the microphone clearly. Any coaching tips? (Novice here). I've also tried adding gain -
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi I had good luck with this low output dynamic mike by running the Shure SM7B to a Cloudlifter transformer then into any good pre amp with Phantom Power. The Cloudlifter uses the pre's phantom power to ad gain to the Shure's relatively low output signal and not to power the mike directly like a condenser mike would need.Good luck.
