The Shure MVX2U USB Interface Turns XLR Mics into USB Mics


Gone are the days wherein you will need to decide between USB mics vs. XLR mics as the new Shure MVX2U USB Interface can let you adapt any XLR microphone to a USB microphone so you can start recording right away!

The new Shure gadget is sleek, compact, and simple enough for both beginners and professionals to use for recording, podcasting, streaming, and many other applications. With a USB cable on one end and an XLR adapter on the other, the Shure MVX2U USB Interface keeps the setup easy and intuitive.

It also offers gain up to 60dB and phantom power up to 48v, making it compatible with most condenser microphones in the market. However, Shure made it to a point to design the MVX2U best with their products such as the Shure SM7B microphone as the adapter will allow you to access the ShurePlus MOTIV Desktop app.

By using Shure microphones with this audio USB interface, you are entitled to use Shure audio tools such as auto-leveling, compression, EQ management, and more.
