    This is Shure trying to bait people into buying what they think is a slimmed down SM7B that they see everyone using for $250. I’ve used a Samson CO1U (~$100) for years and then upgraded to the Rode NT-USB (~$170). I saw this mic with the voice isolation, touch controls etc and decided to try it out. I’ve wanted to get the SM7B for years but don’t want to drop that much cash yet. The good: – Solid build quality for the most part. Others have commented on the thinness of the windscreen. I agree could be better but I like the sturdy metal construction. – flexible connection options (USB / XLR) The not so good/bad: – pick up levels. This thing is VERY quiet. I have to crank the gain way up and that’s with me sitting 2-3 inches from it. The top pick up patter is a little annoying for my setup, but I knew that going in. – USB. I know they don’t “need” USB-C for this Mic but why not have that as default. Why are we going backwards? – Cable quality is so so. – Not compatible with iPad Pro (USB-C). I can’t plug this into my iPad when I’m remote to record? Rode NT-USB does this beautifully. Huge miss in my opinion. Not everyone is stuck to a desk and my iPad is my mini studio on the road. – Touch controls are picky… – This may seem like a small thing but the HUGE Shure logo on both sides is just stupid. The SM7B is slick, all black, and everyone knows what model it is. No need for me to advertise your company on my show. Bad form Shure… Just not worth the $250 price tag. Much better mics out there for $150-200. Even decent mics for sub-$100. I’ll probably return this and at some point get the SM7B setup. Disappointing. (side note for Amazon. The rating options were for Overall, Value for money, Sheerness and Thickness? WTH?)Read more

    I didn’t even know that I wanted to sound like a radio DJ on video-calls until I knew that I could. Since it’s 2020 and my entire existence has been distilled to Microsoft Teams/Zoom calls for work I finally decided I’d had enough and wanted to make sure I could sound as best as possible while speaking. Plug this heavy black cylinder into your computer and boom, call up the FCC, and get yourself a four letter call sign because you’ll sound like your favorite morning FM host while discussing even the most monotonous work topics. What’s even better is that the microphone’s design reduces background noise to almost none. Granted, it can’t defy the laws of physics and does need to be relatively close to your mouth, but this allows listeners to hear only your voice (and not your dog throwing up lego and string cheese, again). The app and auto-mode work great for how I use the mic, even if endless pandemic video calls were not what anybody expected this would be used for.Read more

    This microphone fits perfectly for my use case, and that is the key to making your decision… USE CASE! If you’re looking for SM7B quality XLR, this ain’t it. The audio difference between XLR and USB mode is essentially zero. This makes it a killer USB microphone, but a very limited XLR microphone. The software functioned perfectly and works as expected. I had an issues with audio playback through the headphone jack, however that was my fault as I had set the Hz rate to the wrong value in my PC settings. It took a call to support to identify that. The software limiter also does a poor job since it doesn’t prevent clipping, but just processes the audio after the fact. It’s digital, not analog. The biggest issue this mic has is PLOSIVES. P sounds are TERRIBLE. It makes this mic sound extremely cheap. The provided wind screen is thinnest at the top where you talk into it, about 1/8 of an inch of foam before it reaches the capsule. Feels like it’ll rip one day it’s so thin. This makes is unusable without an additional pop filter. This is a big downside and one of the reasons I considered returning it. However, I managed to jerry rig another mini pop shield onto it and it’s good enough to avoid the hassle of a return. This alone makes the price tag of $250 wayyy too high. You’re almost better off getting a Rode Podmic and an XLR interface for that same price. You also have to get very close to the mic… I have the volume MAXED out and it’s still fairly quiet even from only a couple inches away. Big change from my Yeti that could hear me from across the room. This is mainly due to this being a dynamic mic and not a condenser mic, but it’s still quiet overall with few options to go any louder. The build quality is fantastic, and the lights on the touchscreen make it look pretty unique. The SHURE logo on the sides is a bit of an eye-sore since it’s massive. The microphone is exactly 6 inches long, metal construction, much smaller than a Blue Yeti (which I like). The “squished” look compared to the SM7B has grown on me to the point where the SM7B looks hilariously long. NOTE: Shure sent out a lot of these to YouTubers to review, however they requested they NOT post their reviews if they didn’t like the product. So most day-one reviews you’re seeing is from people that liked it. I’m here to tell you that it’s not an SM7B killer like so many titles suggest, but it is the best USB microphone I’ve seen yet. CONCLUSION: This microphone falls in a very specific sweet spot… for those that want an XLR quality USB mic, but don’t want to spend a couple hundred more for a full SM7B setup. If you’re planning on doing XLR only, then keep shopping. There are better XLR-only options out there. If the price drops to $175, get it.Read more

    Mixed bag this one, The sound and features is perfect for Podcasts and live streams, The sound has some midrange texture that works well and cuts for talking on a podcast or live stream where its competing with other sound sources like game play in a live setting where you do not always have plugin chains. , for singing or use in the studio . it’s a no go. the midrange whilst it cuts its harsh, and the highs are about as smooth as sandpaper. I know its not a fair comparison but I did A/B it with my Sontronics Mercury Tube Mic to see if it was usable as a vocal mic. it was terrible I know that’s a £1,300 mic but even a £99 Rode NT-1 would beat the MV7. its just not flat enough and has some distortion in the mids that just sounds bad in a song. but for podcasts and streaming it actually cuts nicely and its probably the best mic for that. being a dynamic mic, it rejects other room sounds really well. for streaming, its a keeper!!! esp paired with Nvidia broadcast. no need to use headphones anymore for streaming. I gave it 2 stars for the ridiculous Micro USB port on the back. Shure…what are you thinking? any tension on the cable (which can happen a lot) and it either pops out which is the worst thing that can happen live, or it bends the connector. I had to hot melt glue gun it in just so it wont break or fall out. 2 stars man that’s awful, then there is the wind jammer. completely unusable, if you want to get the best sound you gotta get close to this mic, and its gonna be pop city, needs the SM7B foam which I have and is night and day. its pretty much mandatory to use that foam on it and bin the one it comes with which at the front is about 2mm thick. ridiculous. with the SM7B foam and glue gunning the usb connector in its superb for its intended use.Read more

    I am a very small streamer, but I decided to switch to this mic from an Elgato Wave:1 – not because the Wave is a bad mic by any stretch of the imagination – but just because I’m aware that dynamic microphones are massively better at rejecting background noise and helping when you have some slight echo/reverb in your room. Although this mic is slightly more expensive than the Wave:1 (around £107.05 at time of writing this review), I definitely think that if you can afford the price difference then it is absolutely worth it. Originally I was happy using mics with USB connection, especially since the software suite with the Elgato Wave was pretty useful, but I had the intentions of purchasing a GoXLR along with an XLR dynamic mic, and until then I wanted some form of USB dynamic mic as a stop gap, as the GoXLR stock was pretty dry in the UK for a little while. I done my research and came across this mic, and I listened to multiple sound tests and comparisons between the MV7 and the legendary SM7B and thought for a USB mic, it sounded incredible! I started off by using the mic connected directly through USB, and using the Shure Motiv app and had a fairly pleasant experience with it. I’m an AMD user with an x570 motherboard, so I’m not sure if this is related to the ongoing USB issues – but I found a lot of the time, my mic gain would automatically change itself to max (36dB) whenever I would restart my PC, compared to the 24dB that I had it set at. As long as I applied the mic settings lock, it would stop this happening, but then it would also stop me being able to toggle the mic mute – which was unfortunate. Apart from this issue (which again could just be an AMD issue) – the software works pretty well! I followed the recommended settings from Podcastage’s video review on the mic, and overall had a very nice sound through USB. I wish the Shure Motiv app allowed for a more in-depth EQ control, rather than the three presets – along with more in depth control for the compressor. Although I can’t fault the app for this, as it is pretty clear that they wanted to make it as simple as possible to set up the mic and get a good sound, which is exactly how it goes with the app since all of the settings seem to work, except the EQ just works better being set to ‘flat’ since you can’t EQ specifically around your voice tone/pitch. I never tried the “auto level” mode personally, but from the number of video reviews I have watched, it also seems to work pretty well, and looks to be a good way for a complete beginner to just plug their mic in and be up and running immediately, with the software controlling all characteristics of the sound on the fly for the user. After using this microphone through USB for a couple of weeks, I have purchased a GoXLR and I am now using it through XLR, and personally (for my voice at least) – it just sounds much more clean and crisp overall, especially at the higher frequencies. Shure, this mic is no SM7B (see what I did there?) as personally I feel like the SM7B does have a nicer, more refined sound overall – but for anyone who is in the same boat as I was (in terms of looking for a USB -> XLR upgrade path), I can wholeheartedly recommend this mic, as it sounds great through both USB AND XLR. You can also record through both the USB and XLR output at the same time – if you needed to do this. To summarise, this mic wasn’t created to replace the SM7B – the SM7B is still the king of dynamic mics, but for a great all in one solution, you cannot go wrong with the MV7.Read more

    I am new to sound recording and bought the MV7 on the basis of what professionals seem to be using and product reviews. I had an urgent need to voice-over videos and presentations and the inbuilt microphone in my computer was not quite up to standard. I needed to buy a quality microphone without having time for detailed research or chance to test. The Shure MV7 and associated Motiv software were easy and intuitive to install and use. I use both the micro-USB and XLR (via Shure Mvi) connections for different purposes and record via Loopback and Audio Hijack, which are also new to me. Despite my inexperience, the results are excellent, which is a testimony to the equipment and software, rather than my skill. The microphone is very robust and I look forward to using it for many years. My only concern is that the price is high. With more time I may have found an alternative to meet my needs at a lower price. Update I accidentally pulled the USB cable when moving the microphone boom. Although the force was minimal the micro USB bent and no longer connects reliably. The socket in the microphone is OK, but I have had to replace the USB cable. I would have expected better from Shure at the price of this mic and have deducted a star.Read more

    Ich selbst benutzte bisher das Rode Podmic + Scarlett Interface + Fethead für Youtube und Gaming. Als Software zur Nachbearbeitung kam dabei Adobe Audition zum Einsatz. Auch durfte ich schon das Shure SM7B bei einem Freund ausprobieren. Genau dahingehend werde ich das neue Shure MV7 testen.

    I bought 2 of these, the first of which worked for one day and died the next day, and the second did not even switch on. Used all support and troubleshooting channels but nothing worked. Amazon Support said it’s a firmware issue with the Shure App updates, and there’s no clarity as to when this would be resolved by the company. Would not recommend you buy this at all. Save your money and go to a company who cares about the product they’re selling and provide adequate solutions.Read more
