SM7 doesn't need a dust cover, the dust avoids to even come close to the SM7

The sm7b is so good ,that its the only mic that go up in price from 369 to aprox. 470 in germany within the last 3 months in 2015, 14 years after its introduction in 2001 and has therefore proven to fck sennheiser & neumann literaly in the arse. (Unfortunately this is no joke)

My sm7 once punched a hole in a cow just to see who was coming up the road.

The SM7 could end all war on earth and bring peace to humanity, but the SM7 is an entity outside of space and time, saw the beginning and the end of everything, it recorded all possible and imaginable sounds in this and all other dimensions, so it doesn't bother with the puny pathetic race called humans.

We know the Big Bang is real, because the SM7 was there to record it.

horrible for what it was designed for which is broadcasting. just about anything sh1ts on it in direct comparison.
theres a reason why that black bitch on the howard stern show uses it while howard uses a neumann and punches through that dull bitches mic.

so if you want a colored dull low fidelity sound with no highs and sounds like it has 10 layers of cotton socks over it try a sm7b.

Even SM57 is better. Nobody asked for a better bass response since people use high pass filters most the time. And like I said the sm7b may claim to go up to 20khz yet the sm57 is brighter and clearer and if youre gonna sound like **** you might was well pay a lot less and shoot for the 57.

if the sm7b was really that good the president would use it. aint nobody got time to eq that flat dull piece of ****

RE20 for broadcast all day every day.

here my experience with it.
I can't take anyone with the name "NT1a" seriously when it comes to mics

The SM7 was there, and recorded it, but the Big Bang's SPL wasn't high enough so the SM7 could have recorded at a appropriate level.

Don't know if this was already done:
What is perfect pitch with an SM7?
When you throw it in the trash can without hitting the sides.

Last week I used my sm7 to record a tree falling in the woods, and I proved it does make a sound.

The SM7 is so versatile, I bought 2, reverse wired them, and sold my mixcubes.
They look awesome next to my other monitors too.

Once the New World Order is established all microphones will be SM7b's. For your own good. Safer that way.

In the U.S. Congress, there is a bill pending that would classify the SM7b as an assault mic and therefore not only require a 30 day cooling off period but also would be outright banned in California.

In a counter-gesture, some are proposing that SM7b's should be free and the 1% of preamps that can properly drive the SM7b should pay for it.

Well that's what I heard..

Damn ... looks like I'll have to get myself a new boat anchor.

It can take the place of a $3000 mic and a $5000 pre...LOL (seriously though it can do some work but it's going to take 5 times as much time for you to match what a $10k chain can do. So if time is worth more than money it's a no-buy) It's great on LOUD sources
