Shure Launches MV7 USB/XLR Microphone For Podcasters

Shure has unveiled the MV7, its first microphone with USB and XLR connectivity designed for podcasters and streamers.

Inspired by Shure’s SM7B, the MV7 is a dynamic microphone that is able to record over both outputs simultaneously for backup purposes.

Connecting via USB lets users explore additional set-up features and Auto Level Mode within the ShurePlus MOTIV app, to control their vocal tone and distance from the microphone.

With levels being constantly adjusted by the mic to keep the sound consistent, Auto Level Mode means that content creators can spend more time creating and less time editing, and as Shure says, “let your microphone do the work for you.”

In manual mode, users are given full control over their sound and can adjust mic gain, choose from low-pass or presence boost equalizer settings, turn on a limiter, and choose from three different compression settings.

The MV7 is also equipped with Voice Isolation Technology for professional recording capabilities without any background or room noise.

Once recording, the built-in 3.5mm headphone jack and touch panel can be used to monitor sound and adjust mic gain, headphone volume, monitor mix and more.

Appearance-wise, the MV7 is a lot smaller than the SM7B, making it a well-suited travel companion for those on the move. It also has a metal casing and a bundled pop filter, along with a metal mounting frame that can be attached to a stand or microphone arm.

The Shure MV7 is available now and has a price tag of $249.
