The Shure MV7 microphone has long been the best microphone for PC gamers for gaming, streaming and podcasting. (opens in new tab) The hybrid USB/XLR microphone scored 92% in Jorge’s MV7 review (opens in new tab), with excellent vocal clarity and versatility combined with the easy-to-use software. One of the biggest sticking points is the price. But thanks to Black Friday, great microphone deals now abound. That includes the Shure MV7 microphone.
While it may not be as big of a discount as other mics, we think any discount is worth it for what has been our favorite for over two years now.
Right now the cheapest place to get your hands on the Shure MV7 Microphone is at Walmart where it retails for $199.99 (opens in new tab) currently. That’s a $50 discount off Shure’s retail price of $249. It’s an excellent deal for such a good microphone. You won’t find it for this price anywhere else in the US, with retailers like Amazon, B&H and Best Buy offering a smaller discount of just $20, bringing the cost down to $224.
There’s a reason why Shure is the brand of choice for so many musicians and other industry professionals who rely on voice clarity. It’s the best of the best, and the MV7 is Shure’s attempt to bring its excellent gear to content creators. Being a hybrid USB/XLR microphone, you can take advantage of both the adaptability of XLR and the flexibility of Type-B Micro inputs by recording on the go with laptops and mobile devices.
It’s well worth the investment if you want to make your streams or podcasts sound more professional, especially now that it costs $200. Even the $20 discount from other retailers is well worth considering if you miss the boat on Walmart’s offerings. It’s a mic worth every penny, offering professional sound with minimal setup without the $1,000 price tag that comes with it.
