Shure MV51 MOTIV Digital Condenser Microphone
Overview by GAK
The Shure MV51 is a premium, all-metal construction digital microphone solution for desktop and mobile use with unparalleled sound quality.
In the 50s, Shure introduced the Model 51 Sonodyne, one of their most popular microphones, which had the now-classic old-school design that was designed to look like car grilles of the time. The Shure MV51 has that same design and robust metal frame, as well as studio-quality recording capabilities that today’s content creators demand.
The built-in touch panel allows you to choose between 5 preset DSP modes - Speech, Singing, Acoustic, Loud, and Flat - and you can also adjust the gain, mute, and headphone volume from this front touch panel, allowing you to quickly and easily get the sound you need. The free ShurePlus MOTIV app lets you trim and share studio-quality recordings easily with just a few taps. The headphone output lets you monitor in real-time
The Shure MV51 is made to last, even if you’re moving around a lot, with all-metal construction and pro components making it ideal for travelling creators. It has a classic old-school look and compact, portable design, so you get the best of both worlds.
It works great in any environment, whether it’s demo sessions at home to field recordings, and the built-in kickstand makes it easy to positions depending on your setup, and you’re able to attach to it standard mic stands if the situation requires.

Good quality - but you would expect that at the price
I love it, easy to setup, just need a USB c adapter for newer android phones and you're golden
