The V7 MC1 - massive sound & power, no cables required.
A high-performance wireless version of our V7 supercardioid dynamic vocal mic, specially designed for your Shure® handheld transmitter.
The V7 MC1 brings the powerful sound and performance of the V7 handheld wired dynamic microphone to your favorite Shure® wireless transmitter, so you can take your V7’s sound with you wherever you go.
INNOVATIVE, SPECIALIZED ALUMINUM VOICE COIL
The DMC7 dynamic capsule in the V7 MC1 has been custom-developed for a crisp, open sound that perfectly captures your voice in the most natural way you've ever heard on stage - and its sophisticated supercardioid capsule design helps isolate your voice from other instruments, ensuring vast amounts of gain before feedback.
Proven Neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances & high-end workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, superior sound quality and superb consistency.
ALL-METAL BEVELED SPRING STEEL GRILLE
The V7 MC1’s road-ready design is all metal - no plastic parts here. The chassis' high quality, highly durable zinc alloy is designed to hold up under on-stage stress for years, and the spring steel mesh grille is dent-proof and corrosion-free for perfect reliability.
The beveled edge around the grille also prevents your mic from rolling when you put it down on top of your amp or the stage floor - so simple, yet so effective.
Efficiently reduces unwanted wind noise and plosive pops. In case you don't like the stylish red color, or if you find it unsuitable for certain applications, we've included a spare black windscreen in the box for you.
PATENTED INTEGRATED SHOCK MOUNT
The V7 MC1’s innovative, patented shockmount efficiently decouples the capsule from mechanical vibration, providing exceptionally low handling noise as compared to other capsules in its class. This means you can feel free to move around on stage without fear of rumbles, pops, or anything other than your voice coming through.
The V7 MC1's gold-plated contacts ensure a loss-free and reliable signal connection for years, and years, and...

“We took a listen, did a comparison, and that was an awesome thing. It rejected better, it sounded more like Justin’s voice when we handed it over to him, and it’s just making it a lot easier on us - in front of PAs especially, because these days your artist is in front of the system quite a bit, and it just makes our job a lot easier…we just really love the capsule, it’s been great."
- Andy Meyer, FOH Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine) - sE Artist

"The sE V7 MC1 capsule is, without a doubt, the most transparent microphone capsule in our inventory right now. The first time I heard the mic, it sounded as though the singer was using a large diaphragm condenser. His voice was just bigger and more forward, without doing any EQ or compression. The rejection is amazing. There is much less drum bleed than any of the other mics."
- Dan Smith, Audio Director - Willow Creek Community Church
"I was quite skeptical about testing a new lead vocal capsule in a working setup. But the V7 MC1 blew me away regarding clarity in the highs and a tight, cleaned up low-end. Even off-axis pickup of cymbals etc. sounds 'more expensive' and easier to integrate in my mix."
- Felix Piccu, FOH Engineer (D'Artagnan, Saltatio Mortis, Turisas)
"I PREFER the sE V7 microphone vs. the industry benchmark dynamic vocal microphone."
- Ken "Pooch" Van Druten, FOH Engineer (Linkin Park, Justin Bieber, Kid Rock) - sE Artist
"..feels comfortable and substantial in the hand...delivers a solid, natural vocal sound with good resistance to popping and suitably low handling noise."
"They manage to sound punchy without ever being over-harsh in the presence region...[the V7's] extended frequency response and good resistance to feedback make it a strong performer."
- Sound On Sound, Feb 2017 (full review)
"‘Does the world really need another dynamic vocal mic?’ I hear you ask. With one that does the job so well as this one, the answer is yes."
"In a direct shoot out against my 57, I found the response particularly informative down around 100Hz without sacrificing any of the excitement and nuance up at 5kHz and again at 12- 15kHz."
"Form and function go hand in hand as the impressively nuanced and accurate sound is augmented by some crafty design windfalls, not the least of which is the beveled ‘anti roll’ ring around the mic’s circumference. Overall it is a heavy duty, stylish and affordable addition to the front of the stage."
- Mixdown Magazine, July 2017
"I am absolutely floored by the versatility of the V7. The way that mic handles the highs while still maintaining the low end qualities of my voice truly stunned me...I'm having a lot of fun with it on stage."
- Terra Lopez, Singer (Rituals of Mine) - sE Artist
"Feedback wasn’t an issue...even when the grille was inevitably cupped by the grip of an MC not yet schooled in proper mic technique, neither mic went into feedback."
"With some high-pass filtering the V7 sounds solid and the midrange captures an aggressive bite, particularly in the 800Hz range that none of the others could compete with."
- MusicTech, March 2017 (full review)
"Finding the right microphone for Tommy from Between the Buried and Me has always been a challenge. Having tried a large number of industry standard microphones we never found one that works well for him until we tried the sE V7. We both noticed the difference instantly."
"The V7 really allows me to keep Tommy’s vocal up front in the mix, whether he is going from singing to screaming or anything in between."
- Gary Sharpe, FOH Engineer (Between the Buried and Me, Every Time I Die) - sE Artist
"The V7 is an all around great mic that really captures my voice and blocks out the rest. I’ve had a lot of issues in the past with feedback - as we like it really loud on stage - and this mic seems to be a perfect fit for what I’m looking for."
- Alexis Mincolla, Singer (3Teeth) - sE Artist
"I was surprised at how well-voiced the V7 is for a mix, closer to a LDC mic than the usual hand-held; a clear bright representation with plenty of detail in the vocal range."
"In the V7 sE Electronics have a well-judged product that sits well with the excellent competition and is a level above similarly-priced 'budget' mics...it feels solid enough to last a lifetime in the studio or for general live use...I think these mics are a useful update to the classic design: the best of the past with design and sonic qualities for the future."
- Arthur Stone, Gearslutz.com (full review)
"We recently did a shootout with the new sE V7 handheld vocal mic against two classics, the Shure SM-58 and SM-7 and were very impressed with the V7. It had a much more extended top and bottom and the off axis rejection was much, much better than either of the Shure classics."
"For capturing a live 'on the floor' vocal, the V7 should be a serious contender."
- John Baccigaluppi, Single Fin Studio Group
"We did an A/B comparison through the Q wedge and the V7 smoked a standard 58...it's easily worth $150-199."
- Ryan Pickett, FOH Engineer (Ray LaMontagne, My Morning Jacket, Jim James) - sE Artist
"Technically perfect design...robust sound for the stage that does not cost the world."
"...its subtle metallic effect makes the live microphones a real eye-catcher...they also feel very valuable."
"The processing of the microphones is faultless...and small gimmicks, such as the anti-roll ring at the microphone head and replaceable inner windscreen, make working with newcomers in this field like sE Electronics a pleasure."
- Bonedo.de (full review - German)
"I was shocked by how big a difference there was in off-axis rejection, handling noise and susceptibility to plosives. In side-by-side testing, the sE V7 outperformed a group of all the usual suspects–it's a winner in my opinion."
"Did the world need another dynamic handheld mic? I didn't think so, but the V7 proved me wrong. At this price, everyone should have at least two."
- Lynn Fuston, Recording Engineer (Amy Grant, DC Talk, Michael W. Smith)
"With the V7, singing behind the drums is not a problem anymore. Besides the fantastic sound, the V7 isolates my voice perfectly from the drums, and now it's possible to record my vocals while drumming."
- Titus Vadon, Composer / Musician - sE Artist
"GREAT SOUNDING MIC WITH AMAZING OFF-AXIS REJECTION - Our studio focuses on live video recordings of mostly punk bands, and have had considerable problems with drum bleed in the vocal mics. We did a shootout with an Audix OM7, EV n/d96, and the V7. The V7 blew the competition out of the water. Minimal drum bleed while maintaining a pleasing, open sound. Time will tell if they're as sturdy as an sm58, but they would definitely be my choice for live vocals. Considering the price point, these mics can't be beat."

"Love this mic. Using this as my vocal mic. I am blown away by the clarity and reproduction of nuances in my singing..."
"...according to the specs, it is half a db hotter than an SM58 so it will produce minimal surprises at the desk, other than how much nicer it sounds, when you sub it in. No need to swap the clip over either. I'm a baritone, but I think this would work for anybody given that it is very neutral sounding. Tried it on flute as well and that sounded very nice too, and no trouble with blast. So there would be no problem playing flute through it while sitting at the piano."
