New take on a perennial classic

Shure MV7

The Shure MV7 lets you record simultaneously from its XLR and USB outputs. (Mic stand, XLR cable, and headphones not included.)

Shure's SM7B mic is a long-time favorite among producers and recording engineers. Now Shure offers a version of this legendary mic at a modest price designed for podcasters and gamers: meet the MV7.

The Shure MV7 features both USB and XLR outputs. So you can record direct to your smartphone or computer, or run the signal through a traditional audio mixer. And you can do both simultaneously — a great way to save a backup recording. The MV7 has a built-in headphone jack for monitoring, with a built-in touch-panel for easy volume adjustment.

Record just about anywhere

The MV7 has a compact design for easy portability. Whether you leave it set up in your bedroom, or take it with you for remote recordings, you'll get clean, clear voice recordings. Built-in processing isolates your voice from background noises and ambient sounds.

ShurePlus™ MOTIV app

Shure offers a free control app for the MV7 for your Mac® or PC desktop computer. It lets you control the mic remotely when using it as a USB mic.

The app lets you adjust EQ settings, gain, volume, and more. Do you like to speak close to the mic, or at a little distance? Selectable “near” or “far” settings ensure optimal recording either way. There's also an auto level setting to ensure consistent sound recording — a real time-saver for podcasters!

    Product Research


    Overview: The Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone is a dynamic mic designed for podcasting, live-streaming, gaming, and vocal recording. It features both USB and XLR outputs, along with a built-in mounting yoke. A USB connection to your computer lets you use the ShurePlus MOTIV Desktop app to access setup features like Auto-Level Mode, EQ, Filtering, Compression & Limiting, and more.

    Capsule: The MV7 features a dynamic mic capsule with a unidirectional cardioid pattern, that incorporates Shure's Voice Isolation Technology, allowing it to pick up sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting background noise from other angles.

    Housing: The Shure MV7 features a rugged all-metal construction for outstanding protection and reliability. A threaded wire-mesh and foam grille protects the capsule, and an outer foam windscreen is included, helping eliminate vocal sibilance and plosives. This also helps create a warmer more intimate sound to speech.

    Mounting: An adjustable microphone yoke is pre-installed on the Shure Podcasting Microphone, letting you mount the MV7 to most standard table-top stands or boom-arms (both sold separately). Tensioning-knobs on either side of the mic yoke let you easily adjust the mic angle.

    Connections: Three connection ports on the bottom of the microphone provide the following:

    • Micro-B USB: Provides the connection to your computer, letting you use the ShurePlus MOTIV software to configure microphone options such as EQ, Tone, Compression, and more.
    • XLR: A passive, unbalanced XLR jack is provided to connect the mic to pre-amp or audio mixer input. When using the XLR output, software settings (EQ, Tone, Compression, etc) will have no effect on the audio.
    • Monitor Output: A 3.5mm jack can be used to connect a pair of headphones or earbuds for monitoring while using the mic.

    Controls & Indicators: The MV7 features a touch-sensitive panel for quick adjustments and visual feedback.

    • LED Bar: An 8-segment row of LEDs can be used to display the microphone and headphone levels. The LED color indicates which parameter level is being displayed:
      • Green: Microphone level.
      • Orange: Headphone level.
      • Green/Orange: Monitor Mix blend level.
    • Volume Control Slider: Used in conjunction with the LED Bar, the Volume slider lets you adjust the microphone or headphone level by swiping your finger.
    • Monitor Toggle: Lets you switch between the microphone (green) and headphone (orange) volume controls. Pressing and holding activates the Monitor Mix control. This lets you swipe left or right on the Volume Slider to adjust the balance between the Mic Audio and Playback Audio while monitoring.
    • Mute: A Mute soft button lets you mute/unmute the mic.
    • Settings Lock: Pressing and holding both the Mute and Monitor Toggle buttons will Lock/Unlock the settings. A corresponding Lock icon will light when the settings are locked.

    Desktop App: The ShurePlus MOTIV Desktop app, available for both PC and MAC computers, lets you configure and store settings for the MV7 microphone. After downloading the MOTIV app, found here, the following setup options will be available:

    • Auto Mode & Manual Mode: Auto Mode allows the app to select the best options for the microphone, while Manual Mode gives you full control over the MV7's settings. Auto Mode provides the following options:
      • Custom Presets: Configuration of the mic settings can be saved and recalled as Custom Presets.
      • Settings Lock: Lets you protect your settings from inadvertently being changed.
      • Mic Mute: Toggles the mic Mute On/Off.
      • Monitor Mix: An on-screen slider lets you adjust the balance of the mic and playback source signals, working the same as the Monitor Mix slider on the microphone.
      • Mic Position: Lets you select the distance from the sound source to the mic, with options for Near and Far.
      • Tone: Three Tone settings, Dark, Natural, and Bright, let you quickly fine-tune the sound.
    • Manual Mode:
      • Custom Presets
      • Settings Lock
      • Mic Mute/Gain: Lets you manually adjust the mic input Gain and Mute the signal.
      • Monitor Mix
      • EQ: Provides four options for sculpting the microphone sound:
        • Flat: Signal is unprocessed.
        • High-Pass: Cuts out lower frequencies, reducing the proximity effect.
        • Presence Boost: Boosts higher frequencies to emphasize clarity and fullness.
        • High-Pass/Presence Boost: Applies both settings to the signal.
      • Compression: Offers the options of Off, Light, Medium, and Heavy compression, for leveling out the input signal's dynamics.
      • Limiter: Helps prevent volume peaks from causing distortion. Options include On and Off.
