The Shure SM7B is one of the best vocal microphones in the industry today, whether you're capturing vocals for broadcast news, radio or podcasting or recording singers in a studio environment. This dynamic microphone is great for professional audio, providing a flat, wide-range frequency response for both music and speech. It features excellent shielding against electromagnetic hum generated by computer monitors, neon lights, and other electrical devices.
The SM7B has been updated from earlier models with an improved bracket design that offers greater stability. In addition to its standard windscreen, it also includes the A7WS windscreen for close-talk applications.
SM Microphones are reliable and have been used extensively by many performers and engineers over many years. The SM Microphone line has been the benchmark for other microphone performance, reducing handling noise and increasing gain before feedback. In live performance and recording applications, SM Microphones are legendary - virtually indestructible professional gear.

HOW IT WORKS
The wide-range frequency response of the SM7B preserves the natural beauty of the sound it captures. With its detailed audio profile, words may travel far, but they always arrive at their destination with quality and clarity intact.
WHY IT'S BETTER
The air suspension shock isolation and the pop filter eliminate both mechanical noise and breathiness. Words get through and the rest stays out of the mix.
We added advanced electromagnetic shielding to defeat hum from computer monitors and other studio equipment.
The classic cardioid polar pattern is designed to reject off-axis audio. You can comfortably sing or speak while the microphone captures the sound exactly as desired, with minimal distortion.
Did You Know? The Shure SM7B mic was used for most of Michael Jackson's vocals on the groundbreaking "Thriller" album. It's true! Quincy Jones and recording engineer Bruce Swedien used an SM7B for most of Michael's vocals and, according to legend, all of Vincent Price's.
