With both XLR and USB outputs, Shure MV7 is the perfect microphone for use in the studio or bedroom, including dedicated ‘imperfect room’ features.

Inspired by the gold standard in professional podcast microphones – Shure SM7B, MV7 is a more affordable microphone designed for podcasters, gamers and vocalists for use in studio isolated booths or untreated bedrooms. Using Voice Isolation Technology, MV7 can be used in imperfect rooms by reducing background and room noise.

Shure MV7 features two outputs, an XLR and micro-USB (no USB-C ☹️). XLR is great for professional recordings in the studio, while being hooked up to interfaces, mixers or pro audio equipment. USB is great for easily hooking the microphone up to a computer or mobile device. When connected directly to a PC, use the ShurePlus MOTIV app for Auto Level Mode. Auto mode adjusts levels such as gain and compression settings, as well as switchable EQ filters and saving presets for quick access. These real time automatic adjustments are especially great for live streaming, letting you spend more time focusing on creating and less time editing. Shure’s app also includes Customizable Sound Signature, allowing for easy vocal tone adjustments between dark, natural or bright. Select near or far, depending on the style you’re going for. Near is great for podcasting, while far may be preferred for vocal performances. MV7 can hold consistent levels up to 18-inches from the mic. Manual Mode gives you full control, with toggles such as Mic Gain, Monitor Mix, EQ, Limited, Compressor and more. These can be controlled within the ShurePlus MOTIV app or built-in touch panel. The other port found on the back is a 3.5mm headphone jack to monitor your sound.

Shure’s new microphone has an optimized frequency response for rich and natural vocal reproduction. An all metal rugged and professional construction surrounds the internals. The integrated yoke ensures easy positioning on standard 5/8”-27 threaded stands or booms. MV7 comes in Black or Silver with three different purchasing options available on Amazon:

Regardless of the application, creators understand the importance of clear and intelligible audio. We’ve designed the MV7 to be laser focused on the user’s voice, so the audience always gets a clear and rich reproduction no matter the type of room they record in, so their audiences can focus on the content.
