    Fantastic Microphone | Compact Size | Solid Build | Stellar Audio Quality!

    • Written by GREGORY L from Largo

    I was truly surprised at the simplicity and sleek design of this product. This is my first Shure Brand microphone and boy does it knock it out of the park. The clarity of the microphone is stellar and the price point, I feel, is well justified. You definitely get what you pay for with this item (in a very good way). I would suggest this microphone hands down for anyone wanting a well built, compact (travel friendly) microphone. If there was one thing I would suggest, it would be to purchase an additional USB extension cable as the one provided is not long enough for what I needed. These cable are cheap and in no way should hinder your decision in purchasing this product.

    Hope my review helps!

    *P.S.: I am also an owner of the Blue YETI microphone. While the YETI is great, there is a minor caveat. I would suggest the MV51 microphone over the YETI simply due to the high sensitivity of the YETI. The YETI does have its benefits but this simple caveat places the MV51 above it.

    Fantastic Sound from the big guns in Microphone Sound Design Shure.

    • Written by Chris B from London

    I'm a big fan of Shure and this is really a fantastic mic, extremely tough build quality and it's heavy! all metal. Sound is fantastic with different DSP settings of which I prefer the "flat".
    Great for use as a desktop mic for FaceTime/Skype etc and equally great for lightning devices like iPad/iPhone.
    About a billion times better sounding than those Blue Snowball Yeti mic about on a par with the brilliant Apogee Mic which I also own but more versatile I think. I use professional mic with an Apogee Symphony I/O2 like the SM7B, SM57/58, VP88 etc etc I'm a sure fanboy for sure but this for convenience is a great mic, you could easily cut a track on this, acoustic instruments and vocals sound great when recorded in the flat setting and processed with Logic Pro or GarageBand.
    We are living in some great times when tools like this make creativity so easy. 10/10 Microphone. Also it's 25 quid cheaper from Apple than any other retailer in the UK.
