Shure MV7 Microphone First Impressions

This is is part of my live-learning series! I will be updating this post as I continue through my journey. I apologize for any grammatical errors or incoherent thoughts. This is a practice to help me share things that are valuable without falling apart from the pressure of perfection. 

Episode Summary

– Purchased after some difficult experiences with my Blue Yeti Pro condenser microphone
– Wanted a capable USB and XLR microphone
– Challenges with XLR microphone because it is a dynamic cardioid microphone
– Does not require phantom power
– Need to speak closely to the microphone
– Using OBS to record these videos
– The touch screen of the Shure MV7 seems unnecessary but is nice
– Love the headphone input to monitor voice and sound levels
– Purchased it on Amazon for $350 CAD with the tripod stand
– Pop filter does not seem strong enough and is getting some plosives
– The ShurePlus MOTIV software is intuitive and valuable
– Great reviews on Amazon and across the web
– Many people are critical of the MicroUSB which can be delicate
– Overall, I am happy with the purchase and will continue testing the microphone
