OUR PART # MV5-B-LTG
Shure's MV5 ("The Communicator") is a small-diaphragm, digital condenser microphone for Mac and Windows PCs, iOS and Andoid that's engineered for convenience, flexibility and making plug-and-play 24-bit /48kHz digital recording easy. Three onboard DSP preset modes can dial in the optimal sound— for podcasting, voiceovers or tracking vocals and instruments - and the microphone capsule is optimized to deliver top-quality audio over a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range. Additionally, the MV5 has an integrated headphone output for realtime monitoring, a detachable aluminum desktop stand and a mic mute switch, as well as adjustable gain up to +36 dB.
The MV5 features a removable stand that adds an additional layer of versatility by allowing you to put it in places otherwise unreachable by traditionally-shaped stand-mounted microphones. For a higher alternative that's only a few dollars more, Shure's MV51 Large-Diaphragm Microphone is recommended. The MV5, however, is recommended for home studios looking to add an affordable microphone to their setup. But for a warmer and more powerful sound, you'd need a traditional XLR condenser microphone that requires phantom power.
