More Gain. Simpler Setup. Same Iconic Sound.
The SM7dB provides creators and audio engineers with the exact rugged construction and legendary audio quality of
the SM7B, with the addition of a phantom-powered, built-in preamp designed by Shure. This integrated preamp
provides a supplementary +18 or +28 decibels (dB) of clean gain, eliminating the need for a separate preamp, and
freeing users from the hiss and noise introduced by many audio interfaces when their preamps are driven to the
levels necessary to provide enough gain for the SM7B.
Ideal for users of all experience levels, the SM7dB’s additional gain brings the microphone’s sensitivity up to a level
optimized for typical audio interfaces. This guarantees users enough gain on hand for their audio to be heard with
maximum clarity in a recording, on a broadcast, or while streaming, regardless of their audio interface. For situations
not requiring additional gain, users can simply set the integrated preamp to “bypass” to revert to original SM7B
Delivering the smooth and controlled sound of the SM7B, the SM7dB’s wide-range frequency response is perfectly
suited to pristinely capture singing, spoken word, and podcasting, as well as loud sound sources, including drums,
loud vocals, and amplifiers. Sporting the same EQ controls as the SM7B, the SM7dB’s bass roll-off and presence
boost can be applied to best fit the sound source and recording environment.
