How It Works

A legend in audio, Shure designed the MV5 to connect and record via Lightning or USB directly to your phone, without sound distortion. Use vocal, instrument, or flat settings to customize your recording—and the ShurePlus™ MOTIV™ Audio app for pro editing on-the-go. Upgrade your podcast, vlog, or voiceover recordings and stand out from the competition. 

Why It's Better

Mighty with history.

The MV5 packs the clarity of almost a century of audio experience into a super-portable microphone. You get sound quality, squared.

Singular simplicity.

Though you’ll be set up in seconds, it’s also easy to select vocals, flat or instrument modes so you’re good to go when inspiration strikes.

Globetrotting audio.

Designed to travel with your computer or phone, the MV5 rests on its own or connects via a standard ¼” mount to the included desktop stand.

Easy, friendly control.

The ShurePlus MOTIV Audio app gives you the ability to record studio-quality audio—and so much more. Trim and share in multiple formats with a few quick taps.
