What did Shure think?

Markus982, 23.03.2018
I am a professional advertising and OFF spokesman and I am looking for a good mobile recording option on the go. The smaller and less complicated, the better.

From this point of view, first of all the positive things:
- It is really handy, fits in any backpack, in any bag and does not take up much space.
- Plug & Play with iPhone and iPad works great!
- The operation is very easy. A look into the manual you can confidently save.
- The workmanship is sensational! The micro is very robust! Predicate: roadworthy!

But now the negative points that unfortunately outweigh for me.
- The sound. Awful! Something like I do not trust myself to send my customers. It moms without end. Reminds me a lot of a SM58. The built-in DSP presets and the setting options in the app do not help either. Detailed, transparent, clear large diaphragm sound? Wrong!
- Not to use without Ploppschutz. OK, that's synonymous with other large-diaphragm so ... but why then the foam over the capsule? Here was - I believe - a good idea not quite thought to the end. If already foam, then please correct, so he brings something.
- The App: Basically, the app works well. It takes in a good resolution, compressor and EQ can be fine. BUT it can indeed trim the beginning and end of the recording, but there is no way to cut in the middle of the recording? So if eg. Take 1 and Take 3 are good, but Take 2 is cut out ... no chance! Maybe this feature will eventually be added with an update, until then, only the handle to other apps that offer that. In these you can not use the advanced compressor and EQ functions again.

All in all, unfortunately a disappointment. And I say that as a really big Shure fan. As a musician, I have many Shure Mikros in use and love them, but the motive MV51 is unfortunately a grip in the toilet. There you are, for example. much better off with a Rode NT-USB. Sorry, Shure!

Good product

SchluppZ, 01.09.2016
The sound and processing quality is perfect.

A point of criticism for me is the missing possibility of equalizer / Compressor settings over the PC. This is only possible via iOS and the app. Apart from this, the plug-in connection for the USB port on the microphone is not particularly stable due to its small size. I have no concerns that the connection easily broken, however, it is already very wobbly and hang on the cable should not.
