"Shure SM7B: a rapper's delight"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
as a rapper with a deep voice and rapid-fire delivery, recording my vocals clearly without making them tinny and lifeless has always been a challenge. i have taken to recording with dynamic mics because i love how my voice sounds on them. also, because my home project space is not treated well for sound, i greatly benefit from the noise rejection. my condenser and ribbon mics would't work here even if i wanted to use them for laying down vocals.

Sound
5 stars: i use the SM7B with the bass response flat and the presence boost engaged. that extra mid-high range gives my voice just the right extra bit of punch in the mix. this mic picks my voice up perfectly with warmth and clarity -- exactly what i was looking for. i use the thick foam windscreen and don't even additional help with plosives. i play the mic pretty closely, pretty much right up on it.

Features
5 stars: this mic has a bass rolloff and a mid-high frequency presence boost. it also comes shockmounted, has two excellent windscreens, and a customizable bracket that lets you use the mic on a hanging broadcast boom or a traditional mic stand as needed. i'm all set for voiceover work as well!

Ease of Use
4.5 stars: the only thing that took it down from 5 is that i can see some people having a little trouble adjusting the bracket out of the box. however, don't be afraid. no tools are necessary. it can be done by hand. if you absolutely read more need, gently use pliers to adjust the bolts on the bracket. other than that, it's a microphone. what else do you need to know about its use?

Quality
5 stars: i am convinced you could play rugby with this thing by day and lay down tracks by night. i've owned several other shure mics for years. they've been through wars and all work just as well as the day they were bought. i expect this to be no different. you would really have to try to damage this thing.

Value
5 stars: the $350 i spent on this mic almost feels like robbery. this is the finest dynamic mic the game, and it stands tall against condensers and ribbons that cost thousands of dollars. if you're thinking about this mic, don't. just get it. i can't imagine who could be disappointed with it. i don't think you should listen to folks trying to sell you the fact that michael jackson and bruce swedien recorded thriller on this. but you should consider that they had every mic in the world at their disposal and chose the SM7. that's extremely telling. at twice the price, i'd still consider this mic a deal.

Manufacturer Support
3 stars: this is only because it only has a 1-year limited warranty. that said, i can see why shure cuts corners in this regard. their mics are so well made, who needs service on them? i don't know of anyone who has ever had to take shure up on this.

The Wow Factor
5 stars: this is a gorgeous piece of kit. it looks the part of high-end professional. and hearing my voice through it with no effects or anything really shocked me. i'd never sounded so good without plug-ins and FX.
