P4wnyhof uses a Shure SM7B microphone. Once again the Shure SM7B has popped up in a big streamer’s gaming setup, with others including Pengu’s, Beaulo’s and Diegosaurs’. It is a unidirectional dynamic microphone that operates at an end address. This combination provides a noise-cancelling effect, because it is sensitive to sound inputs directly in front of it and background noises are unlikely to be picked up. In order to further minimize unwanted sounds from filtering into recordings, it also features a built-in pop-shield and shock mount, and also comes with an external, removable windscreen.

It offers a flat frequency response with a range of 50 – 20,000Hz that operates with a nominal impedance of 150Ω and has a sensitivity of -59 dBV/Pa. This makes its optimal to effectively capture vocals and bass instruments. There is also a presence boost button and a high press-filter switch on its base.

Although it does not run on phantom power, it does still require the additional purchase of an XLR cable and audio interface. It does come with a switch cover and locking yoke mount. Furthermore, it is constructed from enamel aluminum with a steel case. This gives it durability to protect its cartridge.

Although this is impressive, P4nthof has said that he recommends the Elgato Wave:3 as a cheaper option for those who are just starting out. This is probably advisable, as it has a plug-and-play design that eliminates the need for an audio interface. Its frequency response range is 70 – 20,000Hz and it too operates with a unidirectional polar pattern and side-address.
