The Shure SM7B is a legendary vocal microphone used and held in regard by musicians, podcasters, broadcasters, and streamers worldwide. That said, the SM7B possesses a notoriously low output, requiring users to utilize an in-line booster to get a usable level out of the mic. The Shure SM7dB is here to offer you a more elegant solution. This dynamic microphone serves up the tried-and-true SM7B sound; however, thanks to its built-in active preamp, you get output levels suitable for any recording setup or application — no separate booster required. You can bypass the built-in preamp if you want to replicate the original SM7B's performance, and the SM7dB includes its predecessor's oft-used bass roll-off and presence boost controls. To top it off, the Shure SM7dB boasts the SM7B's iconic look, ensuring that you can benefit from the cache that goes along with owning an industry-standard microphone.

Shure SM7DB Active Dynamic Vocal Microphone at a Glance:

  • Selectable preamp boost of either +18dB or +28dB of extra gain
  • Flat, wide-range frequency response for exceptionally clean and natural reproduction of both music and speech
  • Preamp bypass switch deactivates the preamp to revert to original SM7B performance
  • 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
  • Internal “air suspension” shock isolation virtually eliminates mechanical noise transmission
  • Highly effective pop filter eliminates need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds, even for close-up vocals or narration
  • Yoke mounting with captive stand nut for easy mounting and dismounting provides precise control of microphone position
  • Classic cardioid polar pattern, uniform with frequency and symmetrical about axis, to provide maximum rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sound
  • Rugged construction and excellent cartridge protection for outstanding reliability

Built-in active preamp

As mighty as the original SM7B sounds, many studio professionals argue its output leaves a bit to be desired. Thus, it's standard practice within professional circles to pair the SM7B with an in-line booster to ensure a solid, healthy output signal. The Shure SM7dB offers you the perfect solution by pairing an SM7B with a built-in active preamp. The SM7dB's preamp gives you the choice of +18dB or +28dB of gain, and if you want classic SM7B operation, you can bypass the preamp altogether. You can deploy the SM7dB anywhere you'd use its predecessor — with identical results — but you can leave your in-line booster at home!

True dynamic versatility

The Shure SM7dB includes the same dual-tone controls as its preamp-less predecessor. This dual-band switchable passive EQ offers low-cut and presence boost controls. Flat or with the low cut, the SM7dB is an amazing mic for male dialog and vocals, but defeating the presence boost makes it an excellent choice for bright sound sources and sibilant vocalists.

Superior design for superior results

Like its vaunted predecessor, the SM7dB delivers top-shelf results. For starters, there's an internal suspension and shockmounting system, which eliminates light vibration. Advanced electromagnetic shielding keeps out hum. Top it off with Music Experience-favorite features such as an integrated swivel mount and a robust close-talk windscreen, and this mic has a whole lot to offer. And since it features a cardioid polar pattern, off-axis sound is never an issue for your Shure SM7dB.

What Shure Says...

An audio icon is reborn – the Shure SM7dB 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.

How it works

The SM7dB has a built-in Shure-designed preamp, giving it enough oomph to work with any XLR interface. Providing up to +28 dB of gain, the preamp preserves the mic’s frequency response for that iconic sound. All you need is an interface or mixer offering +48V of phantom power to operate the preamp. Don’t need the preamp? Flick the switch to the left to “bypass” and get original SM7B performance.

All the gain you need.

Never again worry if an audio interface might lack the necessary gain for great results. The SM7dB frees you from clunky in-line preamps and other accessories, while ensuring you get that classic SM7 tone no matter where you’re recording.

The sound you always wanted.

Excellent rear-rejection and textbook cardioid pick-up pattern isolates your voice from background noise, ideal for less-than-ideal recording spacesn

Boost, or no boost.

Miking loud sound sources like a guitar cab? Use +18dB or bypass the preamp. Podcasting or recording quiet vocals? Select the full boost of +28dBn

Quality that's in the details

Shure engineers have painstakingly ensured that it has the same sound signature as the original SM7B. Whether you’ve activated the preamp or not, you’ll get the same great detail in your recordings from a proven dynamic cartridge and frequency range of 50 to 20,000Hz. Hear all the highs and lows for truly natural-sounding audio. The SM7dB includes a custom Shure-designed built-in preamp with technology licensed from Cloud. The preamp has been created from the ground up and tuned by Shure’s expert engineers specifically for the SM7dB to ensure the iconic SM7 sound is able to live on inside the SM7dB; unchanged, unaltered and here to stay for generations to come.
