RME Babyface USB 2.0 Audio Interface
: a high quality USB interface for the Shure SM7B and RE20 microphones. It should work great for small operations. The included software is a big plus.


Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1
: the Shure SM7B microphone is very quiet, so you need one of these to get it to work with more affordable audio interfaces. It provides 25db boost for your microphone.


Audio-Technica ATHM50S Professional Monitor Headphones: provides great audio quality for professional monitoring and mixing. It has a collapsible design, which makes storing it more convenient.


RODE PSA 1 Swivel Mount: this is compatible with RODE and other professional microphones. If your mic mount thread is 5/8″, you will need a mic thread adapter. But the mount does hold microphones up to 4.4 lbs in weight and comes with two desk mounting options.


On Stage DS7200B Adjustable Desk Microphone Stand: not the best stand around but it is affordable and does the job. It is great for home recording. It has an adjustable-height shaft and locking clutch.

These accessories are not cheap but they do help you get started with your SM7B microphone on the right track. Have you got any suggestions? Pleases add them below.

    I have the SM7B and Rode Swivel Mount- they're great. Just ordered another set. Do have a recommendation on how to pack them for a trip? I'm hunting for carrying cases and coming up short.

    • Cyrus

      I have seen crushproof cases for microphones but they are universal. Do you expect it to be a rough trip? Need it to be waterproof?

  • ACB

    What thread adapter is recommended to attach the SM7B onto the Rode PSA1? I'm a little unclear and music shops have been unhelpful…
