Cardioid studio microphone delivers warm and smooth audio reproduction in close-proximity studio and vocal applications. Features include wide-range frequency response, bass roll-off and mid-range control, and internal air suspension shock isolation.
The SM7B is a selectable frequency response microphone that delivers warm and smooth audio in close-proximity studio and vocal applications. Optimized shielding from external electromagnetic hum, along with internal shock mounting, external windscreens and adjustable bass roll-off and midrange emphasis response settings provide clean, consistent reproduction.
Flat, wide-range frequency response for exceptionally clean and natural reproduction of both music and speech
Bass roll-off and mid-range emphasis (presence boost) controls with graphic display of response setting
Improved rejection of electromagnetic hum, optimized for shielding against broadband interference emitted by computer monitors
Highly effective pop filter eliminates the need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds, even for close-up vocals or narration
Now shipping with the A7WS detachable windscreen, designed to reduce plosive sounds and gives a warmer tone for close-talk vocals
Yoke mounting with captive stand nut for easy mounting and dismounting provides precise control of microphone position
Classic cardioid polar pattern, uniform with frequency and symmetrical about axis, to provide maximum rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sound
Rugged construction and excellent cartridge protection for outstanding reliability
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.
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 colouration.
Shield your sound
We added advanced electromagnetic shielding to defeat hum from computer monitors and other studio equipment.
