Capture crisp, clear vocals with the Shure SM7B cardioid dynamic microphone, perfect for streaming, podcasting, voice-over and singing. This is a durable workhorse of a mic with a rugged, all-metal construction that easily holds up to ongoing, daily use. Great for home use or noisy control rooms, the Shure SM7B greatly reduces background noise so the focus is always right when it needs to be. Featuring a flat, wide-range frequency response up to 20kHz, this Shure microphone also includes two tone switches to allow for subtle tonal adjustments. An internal “air suspension” shock isolation removes the need for a shockmount and a built-in pop filter removes plosives without an additional attachment. For consistent, reliable vocal recording, the Shure SM7B cardioid microphone is a sure bet.

Removes Unwanted Ambient Sounds

A classic cardioid pattern ensures that the SM7B microphone won’t ruin a good take with background noise, making it ideal for recording in practically any environment. It also features excellent off-axis rejection, offering plenty of wiggle room for movement while speaking.

Record Singers of Any Genre

Aside from spoken word applications like streaming and podcasting, the Shure SM7B mic is also great for capturing musical vocals.

Whether it’s breathy pop vocals or screaming metal, the cardioid dynamic SM7B handles it all with a higher response and improved low end.

Tone Tailoring Options

The Shure SM7B microphone also includes bass roll-off and mid-range emphasis controls that allow for a bit more vocal versatility than many other microphones. The two tone switches conveniently are located on the back of the mic with an included cover for added protection.

The Shure SM7B cardioid dynamic microphone is an excellent vocal recording solution for anyone looking to take their podcast or streaming channel up to a broadcast-quality level.
