The Shure MV7 podcast mic is great for content creators who want a clear-sounding XLR mic without spending the kind of money that high-end microphones often go for. Our colleagues at MusicRadar scored this model 5 out of 5, calling it a “superb dual-use mic ideal for streamers, podcasts, music, and more.”
The Shure MV7 is currently on sale for $175 this Black Friday—that’s $75 off its normal price, and an incredible deal considering the quality. The only caveat is that you’ll have to buy the silver version, as the black one is on a more modest $30 discount.
Not only are you getting a versatile mic here, but it also comes with its own software to help monitor your voice, adjust EQ, and add a limiter to make sure you’re not clipping, which is always useful. As much as we all love a good hype session on stream, it’s best not to harm the viewers while getting excited.
Here’s a few useful bits of information if you’re trying to decide if it’s the right mic for you: it can use a micro-USB type-B input or the XLR input, providing you with options and adaptability. It has a touch panel to navigate gain, volume, mic muting and headphone mix. There’s no mic stand accompanying this mic, if that’s important for you. Have a boom arm at the ready or purchase one to go with it (Shure sells those, too, if you want to stick to the same brand).
The Shure MV7 comes in a few colors, including black and silver. The limited-edition green and red variants are also on sale for $269, dropping from their original $299.
