One microphone – two worlds of technology

The Shure MV 7 Black is in essence a dynamic broadcast microphone, specifically designed for speech and voice applications. At first glance, this might sound quite commonplace. However, beneath its black-coloured casing lies much more: The MV 7 combines two technological worlds. On the one hand, it can be used as a conventional analogue dynamic mic, with its characteristic moving coil. On the other hand, it can also be connected directly to a Mac, a PC, or a tablet running iOS or Android, directly via USB – in which case the MV 7 becomes a digital microphone with an integrated AD/DA converter. This digital capacity comes together with a number of additional features, notably the ShurePlus MOTIV app which, among other things, allows the signal strength of the microphone to be automatically and consistently adjusted via an auto-level function.

Dynamic mic with touch panel interface

In analogue mode, the Shure MV 7 is simply connected via XLR to an external mic preamp or the XLR input of an audio interface – and as such works like any “normal” dynamic microphone. However, the MV 7 can also be digitally connected via its micro USB socket, in which case the signal is both amplified and converted internally – and can be monitored from the dedicated headphone output located on the back. When in USB mode, basic settings such as gain, monitor, and headphone levels can be set via the microphone’s dedicated touch panel interface. However, in order to take advantage of the MV 7's full range of functions, the ShurePlus MOTIV app provides access to many additional setting options. The internal converter of the MV 7 operates at a maximum sample rate of 48 kHz and with a 24-bit internal resolution.

Voice and speech-oriented

The Shure MV 7 microphone is primarily designed with the human voice in mind. Its frequency response is tailored towards speech intelligibility, and as such it possesses both subtle high boost and low cut shelves. Shure-ly however, the real strength of the MV 7 resides in its expert microphone technology combined with a truly effective yet user-friendly interface – making the Shure MV 7 a solid investment for the future, even for newcomers. Another noteworthy feature is that the XLR output always stays active, even when the MV 7 is connected to the computer via USB. In this way, the digitally converted and compressed audio can be streamed while the pure analogue signal is recorded simultaneously and independently.

About Shure

The American company Shure began developing microphones during the early 1930s and is one of the pioneers of the audio engineering sector. Models such as the 55 Unidyne - known to many as the "Elvis microphone" - and the SM57 and SM58 which appeared in the mid-1960s are still ubiquitous in live sound production today. They enjoy cult status among musicians and technicians alike. In the 1990s, Shure introduced the first wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems and became a market leader in this field. In addition to microphones, Shure offers a wide range of earphones and headphones for studio and live use, as well as various accessories.

Radio and Rock & Roll

Shure describe the MV 7 as a broadcast microphone, but that hardly does justice to its potential. Admittedly, the mic is geared towards applications such as podcasts or YouTube videos – and combined with a table microphone boom arm such as the Millenium DS200 Black (item no. 437359), it will immediately convey that live broadcast feel, both visually and acoustically. However, it cannot be overlooked that the MV 7 is also a cousin of the Shure SM 7 B – the microphone used by Metallica frontman James Hetfield to record his vocals. So, podcasting with a Rock & Roll feel? Easy to achieve with the Shure MV 7! A less spectacular application, admittedly, but nevertheless just as useful, is telephone and video conferencing. And in all of these areas of application, the MV 7 has the double advantage that it can be used in both a professional broadcasting studio or in a hotel room on a laptop. Even in a “proper” recording studio, the MV 7 still has its place thanks to its maximum SPL tolerance of +132 dB, which means it can easily handle loud brass instruments, for example.

Cheaper Alternative to the SM7B
gazoneill 05.04.2021
I bought this mic specifically for podcasting and voiceover work. I have the SM7B and know how powerful it is, so I was a little skeptical about the MV7 knowing some of the qualities might be compromised. Honestly, it sounds fantastic. It's particularly useful for those who aren't familiar with the world of audio as you can download the Shure app and adjust your mic based on the presets provided. I was really impressed with this mic - and the USB connection makes it a little more mobile than the SM7B as you don't need an audio interface. Perfect mic for anyone wanting to do voiceover work, podcast work or anything mobile. 10/10!

Its Great, but USB broke
GripperSim 15.06.2021
Its great but USB broke on mic end. Make sure you have plenty of slack on the wire. Connection to the usb mic end is very very weak. It has no noise compared to the HyperX, and is better. You cant go wrong with the price. I'm not a sound engineer. : )

Excellent !
Hérédonis 17.12.2020
Microphone hybride (USB/cardioïde + XLR + sortie audio) de très bonne facture : tout en métal. Utilisé pour le podcasting et les voix hors champ (voix off) de formations en ligne, il fonctionne aussi avec les solutions de visioconférence (Zoom, Teams) grâce à l'application MOTIV Desktop App pour les réglages. Cette application (à télécharger sur le site de Shure) vient compléter les options de paramétrage offertes par l'interface du panneau tactile. Son de très grande qualité tant dans les basses que dans les aigus avec une bonne rondeur sonore. Attention toutefois à ne pas accentuer les sifflantes (S, Z) surtout quand la bouche est à proximité du micro. Un filtre popup ne s'impose pas car la bonnette anti-vent est très efficace contre les plosives/occlusives (P, T, K) . Le mode de réglage automatique permet une grande souplesse d'utilisation. En bref, un micro de qualité professionnelle que je recommande vivement. Merci enfin à Thomann pour la qualité de la livraison.

Beste Podcast/Homeoffice Lösung
RocketScienceAudio 31.12.2020
Endlich ein USB-Mikrofon, dass die Funktionalität eines Interfaces richtig integriert, dennoch einfach zu bedienen ist und wirklich gut klingt. Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen günstigen USB-Mikrofonen bietet dieses Mic auch einen Rückweg zum abhören und fürs Monitoring. Kein Ärger mit irgendwelchen Bastel-Treibern (Umwege über Asio4All, Core Audio etc...) und dank des XLR-Outs keine Einbahnstraße, da man das Mikrofon später auch mal in größeren Setups einbinden kann. In der Software gibts diverse Klangeinstellmöglichkeiten (Top-End Boost, Low Cut). Top! Gut gemacht, Shure!
