    I have tried them all. Heil, EV, Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, Rode, Audio-Technica, etc... I keep coming back to the SM7. Often duplicated never replicated. A fantastic classic legendary sounding 🎤

    I just got it but I have had an SM7B for years. I read all the comparison forums but no one could really nail the differences between the two. What I have found is that I hear more low-mid in the SM7, but a slightly bigger bottom in the SM7B and it sounds a bit more open to my ears. Both mics sound wonderful especially at their price.

  • Made in USA SM7 is the best!

    Original MJ mic! Can not go wrong with this dynamic wonder. It has that mojo, that easy to sing in it no matter what kind of 'je ne sais quoi'! A must have mic for the screamer alternative male vocalist and all others. Get the rare USA version if possible. All other versions are great too. Happy music making :-)
