The Shure SM7B is a dynamic microphone that is designed for use in recording studios and broadcast studios, but is suitable for live shows and all other applications you would want to use a dynamic microphone for. It has a swivel mount that is attached to a standard XLR output and also comes with a handy pop filter that can be placed directly over the mic's grill. It also has a filter switch on the back of it.


I've been using the Shure SM7B for about four years and have found it to truly be a great sounding microphone. It doesn't differ too much if at all across the board from the standard SM7, sharing the same qualities in terms of tone that includes a big sounding response as well as the ability to handle louder signals and instruments. I've used this microphone for recording everything from vocals to kick drum and other drums to electric guitar. While it excels in a number of different situations I would have to say that I like using it best to record male vocals, especially those with a lot rasp in their voice. I feel that since it is able to handle such loud signals it is perfect for males vocals and seems to share a sweet spot with those frequencies that make up the male voice. While it was originally designed for broadcasting, it has made a huge leap into the world of recording and has become a favorite of many professional engineers. The price of the Shure SM7B is very reasonable considering the great sounding and extremely sturdy microphone that you are getting. The good price makes it a great choice both for home studio owners and professional engineers, I would encourage all looking for a top of the line dynamic microphone at a cheap price to check out the Shure SM7B.
