Make good use of our powerful audio toolbox - ShurePlus MOTIV™ App - for optimal recording results and sharing your recordings via internet.

A digital soul lives up to the legend.

Styled after the classic Shure 51 microphone, MV51 inherits its inspirations for vocalists, musicians and all music lovers from around the world. The all-metal structure houses a custom-designed 25mm extra-large diaphragm to capture sound with superb clarity in 24-bit/48kHz uncompressed digital format, brought along an unmistakably classy touch while embracing the new era of digital recording.

Touch for Timeless

MV51 is fitted with a minimal onboard touch panel that introduces digital functionality into a vintage assembly, which enables quick access to control DSP, gain, mute and headphone volume adjustments.

Stand up for all great sounds.

Let it stand alone on desktop with the adjustable metal kickstand for podcasting, or mount it on a standard microphone stand to record acoustic instruments, MV51 performs equally great in capturing your sound sources. Plug in your headphone to monitor audio results real-time, and make instantaneous adjustments.
