For studio sound that speaks volumes.

SM7B

Vocal Microphone

Whether it’s broadcast, podcast or recording, voices need to be handled with care. When purified and polished, every detail has more impact. That’s why the SM7B was built, to capture smooth, warm vocals that connect the speaker to the listener.

How It Works

The wide-range frequency response of the SM7B preserves the natural beauty of the sound it captures. With its detailed audio profile, words may travel far, but they always arrive at their destination with quality and clarity intact.

Why It’s Better

Only good air gets through

The air suspension shock isolation and the pop filter eliminate both mechanical noise and breathiness. So words get through and the rest stays out of the mix.

Uniform capture

The classic cardioid pattern is designed to reject off-axis audio. So you can sing or speak at a comfortable angle and it captures the sound, just as you want it, with minimum coloration.

Shield your sound

We added advanced electromagnetic shielding to defeat hum from computer monitors and other studio equipment.

Quality that’s in the Details
