Shure MV7X Dynamic Microphone
Shure MV7X Dynamic Microphone
Overview by GAK
The Shure MV7X dynamic microphone delivers the clear, pro-quality vocal reproduction that Shure’s 7 series is renowned for at an affordable price.
The Shure MV7X is a highly directional dynamic mic, which means it doesn’t require phantom power to run and is significantly less affected by the sound of your room. This makes the MV7X a great option if you’re planning on recording in a home setup that hasn’t been acoustically treated. The MV7X is also incredibly simple to use and get a fantastic sound with, all you have to do is plug an XLR cable from the mic into your interface of choice and you’re away!
Voice Isolation Technology
Nowadays, a lot of content creation, podcasting and music production takes place in untreated environments like bedrooms or basic studios. That’s why Shure have tailored the MV7X’s cartridge for home use and equipped it with their innovative Voice Isolation Technology. Shure’s Voice Isolation Technology, which debuted in the MV7, laser-focusses on your voice, rejects annoying background noise (like street traffic or humming) and isolates your voice from external reverb. Essentially, it makes you sound like you’re recording in a fully treated studio. An advantage of this tech is that it’s a fully passive system of precisely engineered airflow, so it doesn’t require any power to function.
Incredible Vocal Reproduction
A trademark of the Shure 7 mic family is crisp, balanced and articulate voice reproduction, which is why the SM7B has become arguably the industry standard and ultimate mic when it comes to podcasting and broadcasting. The MV7X is no exception, giving you a remarkably rich and natural vocal sound at an affordable price point.
Shure have designed the MV7X’s frequency response to optimise the clarity and intelligibility of your voice, making it a top choice for podcasters, content creators and streamers that want professional results.
Versatile Instrument Mic
Whilst the Shure MV7X’s effective off-axis rejection makes it excel with vocals and close-mic applications, it’s also a fantastic instrument mic thanks to its wide frequency range and smooth high-end response. Whether you’re capturing an intimate acoustic guitar performance or mic’ing up a cranked amplifier’s cab, you can count on the MV7X to make your audio source sound exceptional.
Aside from their outstanding sound, there’s another reason why Shure mics are favoured by countless live and studio engineers around the world - their durable, road-ready build quality. The Shure MV7X stands shoulder to shoulder with its siblings the SM57, SM58 and SM7B in this regard, sporting a rugged all-metal construction that ensures a lifetime of consistent and reliable performance. The MV7X is outfitted with an adjustable integrated yoke for standard 5/8"-27 threaded stands or booms, which makes putting it into the perfect position for podcasting or performing a piece of cake.
Shure also offer the MV7, which comes in both Black, in Silver and as a kit. The MV7 is effectively the MV7X with additional software capability, allowing you to record with both the analogue XLR output and digitally via the USB port. The iconic Shure SM7B sits at the top of the range and contiunes to be the go-to choice for countless professionals.
When it comes to content creation, podcast, vocal and instrument recording, the Shure MV7X XLR mic is one of the best choices in its price range. The MV7X’s more attainable price makes it an ideal solution if you’re looking to build your podcasting or streaming studio on a budget and need two or more microphones for interviews or group broadcasts.
