Shure was founded in 1925 in Chicago by Sidney Shure. Initially distributing parts for radios, Shure soon began its now-legendary journey into the world of microphones and professional audio gear. The company's accomplishments include several patents, and a huge presence in a variety of microphone markets, including military.
Shure then went on to dominate the phono cartridge market, ascending to the top spot of manufacturers, while also continuing to innovate within the microphone market. In 1966, Shure debuted its SM58, which to this day remains the most popular vocal microphone in the world. In recent years, Shure has successfully developed wireless and headset microphones, noise-canceling headphones, and additional condenser microphone products, while also, in 1985, squeezing in a groundbreaking home theater product, the HTS5000 Matrix Surround Decoder, for which it also received a patent.
Today, Shure remains one of the strongest and most consistent brand names in professional audio.
