Mitch Gallagher from Sweetwater shows off Shure's new MV7. This is a modern, and slightly more affordable, take on their classic SM7B. The new MV7 offers USB connectivity, in addition to traditional XLR. There's also a companion app and a new on-mic controls. Unfortunately it doesn't quite sound as nice as the SM7B in Mitch's test here, but for $150 less it might be worth considering. I bought my SM7B with the first chunk of money from my YouTube videos and consider it to be the second best investment I've made in my career.
