One microphone – two worlds of technology

The Shure MV 7 Silver 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 silver-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 Silver (item no. 437361), 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.

Great microphone
Pueblo Vista, 21.04.2021
Even tho I am not a "podcaster" or anything like that, I just wanted to optimize my audio during calls and meetings. I guess Covid really made us really impatient with our free time.

The main reason I got the MV7 is the USB option. I might connect it with an XLR cable on my audio interface, however for the time being I'm good. I am very satisfied with the results and would deffo recommend.

Gut für Podcasting - aber bitte mit Popkiller
Kadda, 19.01.2021
Das Mikrofon soll für Podcasts eingesetzt werden und hat von mir einen Soundcheck bekommen. Es ist sowohl mit XLR, als auch mit dem USB genutzt ein klanglich solides und sauberes Mikrofon - WENN, und das finde ich wichtig dazu zu sagen - wenn man einen zusätzlichen Popkiller davor klemmt. Es poppt ansonsten doch ziemlich stark und ist sehr empfindlich was scharfes Ausatmen und V-Laute angeht.
Ansonsten - also mit Popschutz - solider Sound, klar, sauber.
Einen Stern Abzug in der Gesamtwertung - einfach, weil es eben ohne Popschutz nicht wirklich gut klingt. Aber das Problem kann man ja lösen.

très bon
Un musicien de génie qui n'as pas du tout pris la grosse tête, 01.01.2021
Très bonne affaire et plus adapter au Format Radio/Stream/Voix Off que le SM 7 B , et moins cher .
Le Gros avantage de ce micro est de pouvoir le brancher aussi bien en USB directement à un ordinateur ou bien en XLR dans une interface audio ou table de mixage. Seul petit désavantage c'est que les fonctionnalités de réglage tactiles qui se font directement sur le micro ne son disponible qu'avec un branchement en USB.
Bien moins cher que son célèbre grand Frère, le SM 7 B , le MV7 est plus adapter pour de la radio/stream et autre enregistrement du genre comme de la voix off ect. Il est donc plus resonnable de se tourner vers celui plutôt que de faire comme 80% Streamers actuel et d'économiser une bonne centaine d'Euro x)
