Shure SM7DB Dynamic Cardioid Polar Pattern Rugged Vocal Microphone with Built-in Preamp (Black)

An audio icon is reborn – the Shure SM7dB Vocal Microphone has the sound you’ve loved for years, but with the convenience of a built-in preamp providing all the extra gain you’ll ever need. The latest iteration of this legendary XLR dynamic microphone makes it easier for podcasters, streamers, and musicians to get perfect vocals from any recording setup.
Built-in Preamp, Built on Legacy
The SM7dB is a dynamic vocal microphone with a built-in preamp providing up to +28 dB of low-noise, flat, transparent gain ideal for almost any interface and simplified audio chains.
Selectable Preamp Boost
The microphone features a selectable preamp boost of either +18dB or +28dB of extra gain. It has a flat, wide-range frequency response for exceptionally clean and natural reproduction of both music and speech.
Bypass Switch
The preamp bypass switch deactivates the preamp to revert to the original SM7B performance. The bass roll-off and mid-range emphasis (presence boost) EQ controls. Superior rejection of electromagnetic hum, optimized for shielding against broadband interference emitted by computer monitors. The internal ‘air suspension’ shock isolation virtually eliminates mechanical noise transmission.
Pop Filter
The highly effective pop filter eliminates the need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds, even for close-up vocals or narration.
Yoke Mounting
Yoke mounting with a captive stand nut allows for easy mounting and dismounting providing precise control of the microphone position.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The classic cardioid polar pattern, uniform with frequency and symmetrical about axis provides maximum rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sound.
Durable Construction
The rugged construction and excellent cartridge protection make for outstanding reliability.
