There is no doubt that Motiv MV5 looks great. Borrowing heavily from the design of the famous harmonica mic - the green bullet - Motiv MV5 is a completely different animal on the inside.
It's basically a 'cut down' version of the Motiv MV51, in that you 'only' get 3 DSP preset modes on board the MV5 (Vocals, Flat, Instrument).
Motiv MV5 is really well suited to podcasting and vlogging applications. The simplicity (and style) of the included stand, integrated headphone output for realtime monitoring, and the flexibility of plugging into your laptop via USB, or iOS device via Lightning® cable, mean that MV5 can go anywhere with you - or stay comfortably at home, brightening up your workspace.
Plug it in and get to work right away, take advantage of three onboard DSP presets to quickly dial in the right sound for your project, or dive even deeper with the free ShurePlus™ MOTIV™ iOS app for enhanced recording, editing, and sharing.
Like all mics in the Shure Motiv range, MV5 has been tested to the same rigorous quality standards as all Shure products.
