Even a relative novice like me can hear the difference.
Got mine via ebay, along with two other 'ol Shures, the 546 and 548.

BTW a mic that not a Shure SM7, but has similar tone, is the Beyer Soundstar MKII
aka the Model 400 or M400. Way cheaper and less fussy as to "which pre".
Harvey Gerst's Internet posts on these first alerted me.

Any of these through a pretty good pre matches (or beats) a U87ai on my voice FWIW.
