While Shure’s SM7B is a first-call mic for many sources, it’s a total rock star dialog microphone. You’ll find this dynamic beauty dangling from broadcast booms in voiceover, ADR, radio, and podcast studios around the world. There are two settings that let you tailor the SM7B to a wide range of voices and applications. Whether you want to bring out the resonance of a deep baritone, tame the brittleness of a high soprano, capture a whisper, or record a gunshot, the Shure SM7B is a must-have part of your rig.
True dynamic versatility
Investing in a microphone can be a bit intimidating, because you never know how well it will perform. With its dual tone controls, the SM7B is exceptionally versatile. This dual-band switchable passive EQ offers low cut and presence boost controls. Flat or with the low cut, the SM7B is an amazing mic for male dialog and vocals, but a switch of the presence boost makes it an excellent choice for bright sound sources and sibilant vocalists. It can also take up to 180dB, which makes the SM7B a top choice for pounding bass drum and full-tilt guitar and bass cabs.
Superior design for superior results
The SM7B’s been around forever, right? So, its components are probably simple. Wrong! This mic’s design has more than spanned the test of time. For starters, there’s an internal suspension and shockmounting system, which eliminates light vibration. Advanced electromagnetic shielding keeps out hum. Top it off with Sweetwater-favorite features such as an integrated swivel mount and a beefy close talk windscreen, this funky-looking mic has a whole lot to offer. And since it features a cardioid polar pattern, off-axis sound is never an issue for your Shure SM7B.
Deeply rooted history in pop music
Beyond voiceover work and podcasting, the SM7B has taken over mainstream music as the microphone of choice. This mic has flattered pop singers from Charlie Puth to Michael Jackson, delivering chart-topping records like Thriller time and time again. And over the years, Shure has only worked to improve the SM7B dynamic microphone — providing an even silkier top end frequency response with their latest 2020 model. Whether you’re a part of the podcast boom or recording your next hit single, our Sales Engineers at Sweetwater can assure you that the SM7B will not disappoint.
