    I’m a musician/singer/songwriter and produce/engineer my own music with 3 album releases, yet being independent I have no claim to commercial funding so every piece of equipment I buy is a precious investment. I bought my SM7B after much research and have done numerous audio tests in my studio, with some preliminary recordings for a planned new album. (I put in this boring self-description so you can judge where I’m coming from in writing this review). I believe many/most people buy this microphone without fully understanding what they are buying. The Shure name and the hype about Michael Jackson recording with it tends to cloud the judging process, so for many it’s a quick decision to buy. But a more detailed analysis reveals more characteristics and with better understanding you can put aside the hype and probably appreciate theSM7B for what it truly is : a fantastic Dynamic microphone with a SM58-like character that works for robust studio-recordings IF you have a high-quality high-gain preamp to use with it. Being a dynamic microphone, it does not have it’s own preamp and is thus not as sensitive as a condenser mic. It’s therefore not very useful for recording delicate singing voices, it’s just not sensitive enough. But it will handle loud,screaming vocals easily, the capsule is robust enough to take in all that high energy. This is just the physics/science of microphones: dynamic mics handle loud sounds better, condensers handle delicate things better. But the SM7B is not like the Shure SM58 dynamic mic, it’s capsule elements are thinner and much more sensitive, so it’s sensitivity does lean towards the condensers, but being a dynamic mic this sensitivity comes at the expense of it only being able to produce a weak signal, so it needs a preamp with plenty of clean gain before the signal can be used…..if you really think hard about it, it is thus trying to be like a condenser mic, but whereas a condenser mic has a built-in preamp, this SM7B needs an external preamp! In-between, that’s where it is. But the story gets more interesting. The SM7B has “character”… the audio pattern mimics the legendary SM58’s presence-boosting curve, so the SM7B can give your recorded voice the classic Shure SM58 “live” character if you know how to use it right (though again you need to keep in mind that it’s never going to be as delicate as a condenser mic, still if you know what you’re doing you might find it a worthy trade-off to get great character with the loss of some delicate-ness. Post-recording engineering, a bit of compression and you’re back in the game.) Misconception: There is a presence-boosting switch. Nope. What the switch does is take away the presence to give you a flat-response curve, i.e. in its natural state the presence is already boosted, the switch is misleading, the flat-response is the altered state. Misconception: The pop-filters (windscreens) provided give you a natural sound. No they don’t. They filter off the high-frequencies, giving you a flatter sound. This is perfect for podcasting, and you can speak with your mouth close to the mic without having pops (use the thinner or thicker filter, depending on how robust your POP-ing is getting), but for singing you want to take off the windscreens, leave the metal grill exposed, and use a proper external POP filter. For recording of a singer, the magic comes with a proper external POP filter, no need for a super-expensive one, but one with at least a double-grille and larger (6inch minimum) diameter. Shure sells such a POP filter, good enough for the task. Once you’re using a proper external pop filter, you can place it really close to the metal grille front, have your SM7B switches without bass-cut and with the presence-boost on (as I said it earlier this is actually a no-presence-cut position rather than a real boost)…and you can record your singing in all it’s glory, your voice gets recorded as if you were winging with a Shure SM58 on steroids, i.e the “character” of the mic is there. There is no need to switch off this presence, you can always do so in the mixing stage. You thus end up recording with a high degree of sensitivity yet having a very low noise floor (the advantage of a dynamic mic). The is not much proximity effect with this mic, the metal grille extends far beyond the capsule element so your mouth cannot get really too close to the capsule. (Hats off to the Shure engineers for this bit of idiot-proofing). Imagine a super-sensitive SM58 with a Blues singer planting his lips of the grille and you’re recording his voice in a studio, and you’re in ‘POP hell…now you appreciate the engineering 🙂 Apologies for the lengthy review, but I do believe I’ve given an honest description of the important details. PODcast users may find this mic overkill but hey if you have the cash then flout it, though you could get the same audio with a cheap condenser with a big windshield and some EQ work. Recording vocalists with a more dynamic vocal range is where the SM7B will probably shine, and especially with louder vocalists, or for recording alongside other instruments being played simultaneously, where the bleed from other sounds is significantly reduced with such a cardiod-pattern dynamic mic. I’m very happy with this mic, have done tons of audio tests with it. I’ll use it for my more rocking vocals, leaving the delicate ballads to a condenser mic. Hope this review helps you decide what’s best for you, make the best use of your hard-earned $. Cheers.Read more

    To be clear, this is not a BAD microphone. It’s also not a GREAT microphone. It’s…fine. Most voices through the SM7B will sound articulated, clear, thin, slightly nasal, and utterly bland. Also, be aware that this is not a plug-and-play mic. For podcasts or voiceover you’re going to need to spend a significant amount of time in post-production shaving off the noise floor, and pulling character out of the voice. On the other hand, the build construction is excellent, and the included mount is solid. Now…about that noise floor. If you’ve done your homework you already know that this is a low-output mic, but you might not understand just how weak a signal can be until you plug an SM7B into your favorite high-quality preamp. I’m running the SM7B through one of the best prosumer interfaces you can buy–the Sound Devices Mix Pre 6–in a sound-treated home studio. Juiced up via 65db of ultraclean gain, the SM7B provides a perfectly serviceable signal…with a steady, easily detectable background hiss of white noise. Every microphone creates an innate noise floor just by virtue of the electronics, but a decent mic (even dynamic mics like the SM58 or Samson Q2U) will typically drown out the noise floor with the actual signal. Not the SM7B. You’re going to need to use an expander or de-noise plugin (please don’t use an aggressive noise gate) to obtain a final product that’s suitable for a professional-sounding podcast or voiceover. On the plus side, this microphone looks great. Which is actually a shame, because let’s be honest: that cool, all-black, Darth Vader esthetic accounts for 80% of this mic’s appeal. The other 20% is Joe Rogan. I can’t count the number of aspiring podcasters who are itching to drop $400 on this microphone without even exploring the alternatives or doing their research. This is the ultimate “if I buy it then people will have to take me seriously” mic. At least half of the new podcasters who purchase an SM7B are buying it for bragging rights and to feel validated as professionals, rather than because they’ve tried all of the options and chosen the best product for their voice. Then they plug it into a Focusrite Scarlet, slap on a heap of compression and a noise gate, and feel like pros. I’m not saying this isn’t the right mic for you. I’m saying this *most likely* isn’t the right mic for you. IF you have an amazing preamp and IF you have a resonant voice and IF you’ve tried competitors like the EV-RE20 and the Heil PR-40, then MAYBE you can justify the $400 expense. Just know that you’ve most likely sacrificed tone in the name of looking cool. Pros: Looks great Excellent build quality Looks great Decent, inoffensive sound Did I mention it looks great? Cons: Expensive Unexceptional sound. The tone is thin, and lacks warmth (unless you’re practically eating the mic to achieve some proximity effect, in which case you’ll struggle with sibilance and plosives) Incredibly weak signal which results in a… High noise floor Seriously, unless you’re a veteran in the podcast or voiceover field and can list five solid reasons for purchasing the SM7B (none of which includes “the look”), don’t buy this microphone. If you’re rocking a Scarlet interface, don’t buy this microphone. Most podcasters are going to get a better sound with an Audio Technica AT2100 or other entry-level dynamic (or–if you have a solo podcast and a quiet environment– even a midrange condenser ). Plus you’ll save a few hundred bucks.Read more

    Before you drop this much money on a microphone… make sure you understand what it’s geared towards. If you are a musician with a lot of immediate background noise, in a small poorly treated room (acoustically speaking)… this is your microphone. Keep in mind though the costs do not stop with the purchase of this mic. You will need a quality microphone amplifier to even run it, and that will cost you more than the microphone itself. After you have purchased all of the gear… be prepared to chew on the microphone….. You need to get REALLY close to this thing to make it work… never mind sound good. If you are a youtuber wanna-be, be prepared for this giant sausage to consume half your frame. This is a very good microphone for a very specific application. Lots of background noise, and little regard for what it looks like on camera. If you are tubing, or streaming…. there are WAY better options for a significant less investment. Look at Rode PodMic, or a something else that is going to give you some range and let the preamp gate/compressor eliminate the subtle background noise. You don’t need a live venue noise box Mic at ridiculous investment to achieve quality sound.Read more

    Lo Shure SM7B è il microfono adatto a chiunque voglia far della propria voce un capolavoro, adattabile a ogni situazione, IO ad esempio lo uso nelle mie stream collegandolo a un Mixer GOXLR e impostando i giusti parametri è una favola, l’unica pecca(che pecca non è perchè chi compra questo microfono dovrebbe saperlo) è che necessita per l’appunto di un mixer qualsiasi per essere collegato e quindi non è adatto a piccoli streamer o a persone che non vogliono spendere soldi per un mixer. Ci tengo a dire che insieme al microfono NON è presente nessun tipo di cavo XLR, quello va comprato a parte. Spero che la mia recensione sia stata d’aiuto a tutti voi!Read more

    From what I read, the only negative reviews are from people who have zero or very little knowledge of how a microphone works. It’s actually embarrassing to see their “review” and to have so many “helpful” likes on them. The mic is incredible. I use it for recording YouTube videos. In order from my mouth to the computer I have the SM7B on the PSA1 boom arm connected to an XLR cable connected to the Fethead connected to the Focusrite 2i2 which connects to my laptop. Some people claim the Fethead should be connected to the mic side but it makes no difference at all. When called out about this, they say it’s not the Fethead’s fault but cheap XLR cables. So I plugged in some Amazon Basics XLR cables and it works fantastic with the Fethead on the Focusrite side. People like to just spew non-sense for the fun of it. One piece I didn’t mention is the Shure A26X 3″ Extension Tube. I have this hooked up between the mic and the psa1 boom arm. This piece is optional but if you search for that piece on YouTube, you will see why you may like to have it. I paid around $20 Canadian for it. The mic sounds absolutely fantastic for professionally made YouTube videos and cuts out a lot of the background noise. I also had the SM57. The background noise is about the same but the quality of the SM7B is better. It also gives you options to help make it compliment your voice unlike the SM57 or SM56. Those are both fantastic mics, but you can’t beat the SM7B and it looks so much cooler than having that massive ugly grey windscreen on it that you have to buy for the SM57. Just take the cash hit and invest in this setup. It’s brilliant.Read more

    Das Shure SM7B ist ein wirklich schönes Mikrofon aber wenn man ein Rode NT1A Großmembranmikrofon gewohnt ist fällt einem doch auf wie der Ton sich zwischen einem dynamischen Mikrofon (Shure SM7B) und einem Großmembran (NT1A) unterscheidet. Ich war eine klare Stimme gewohnt, das bietet das Shure SM7B nicht so wirklich wie das Rode NT1A – Somit finde ich den Klang über das NT1A um weiten besser als es das Shure SM7B hinbekommt. Man kann fasst sagen das SM7B setzt zu viel Bass auf, weniger Höhen. Aber das SM7B hat im Vergleich ein riesigen Vorteil, es ist A) kleiner bzw. besser Positionierbar als das NT1-A mit seiner riesigen Spinne (ist viel angenehmer vor dem Mund zu haben als das riesige Teil) und B) Es nimmt nicht die gesamte Umgebung wahr (klar es nimmt es weiterhin die Tastengeräusche und Co auf, aber um einiges leiser und die eigene Stimme bleibt im Vordergrund). Jetzt ein negativer Punkt der aber mit meinem Setup selber sein kann. Ich nutze das Yamaha AG03 ohne Preamp mit dem SM7B was auch ganz gut klappt (Lautstärke ist gut), aber es gibt ein stark bemerkbares Grundrauschen das ich als störend empfinde was eine Kaufentscheidung bei mir beeinträchtigen hätte können. In Kombination mit einem Kompressor (+EQ) ist es echt nervig. Aktuell schaue ich ob es an mir liegt, aber ich lese von vielen mit dem Rauschen, aber das AG03 ist auch ein etwas günstigeres Mischpult, mit einer besseren wird das sicherlich auch anders sein. Also für fast 400,00 EUR finde ich es schon sehr teuer, im Vergleich mit dem NT1A was neu 159 EUR kostet und eine bessere Qualität hat (wobei besser kann man nicht sagen, einfach eine klarere)… Da würde ich mir nochmal Gedanken machen ob man soviel dafür ausgeben sollte. Ich persönlich teste es noch etwas, und mal schauen ob es wieder das NT1A wird, wobei mir schon beim Shure gut gefällt das meine Umgebung + Atemgeräusche sehr viel leiser und ertragbarer sind :DRead more

    This is a great product which will make especially male deep voices sound great however for what you need to buy with the mic such as a triton fethead or a focusrite scarlet solo along with a strong and sturdy mic arm to support the weight this definitely isn’t a mic to get if you’re first starting especially if you aren’t very good at vocal edits and how to set something like this up.Read more
