Shure Reminds Online Shoppers About Fake Websites



With the holiday shopping season upon us, more people will be making purchases online and the potential for scams is increasing as watchdog groups are warning consumers to be careful about their online purchases.

Shure wants to remind people who are purchasing directly from Shure to confirm that they are visiting the authentic Shure website. Many scams include fake websites that have a similar URL with a company name included and are designed to look like a genuine company website. This dishonest tactic is particularly common with banks and retailers, and is now being seen with other brands as the technology to mirror the look and feel of a company website has become more advanced.

The only Shure website in the U.S. that sells Shure produces is Shure.com. Any other website in the U.S. purporting to be an official Shure company website and offering Shure produces for purchase may be a fake website designed to steal consumer credit card information.

While it is very easy to be directed to a legitimate-looking search result based on a search engine query, sometimes, those search results can include dangerous websites. The lure of deep discounts on those websites that look like an official company site can also be enticing.

Shure doesn’t sell products through a factory outlet or sell refurbished or returned products. Beware of sites that include “factory” or “outlet” in the URL. For customers who prefer to purchase from an authorized Shure dealer instead of the company website, the Authorized Retailer tool at shure.com is highly recommended to avoid purchasing from an unauthorized seller.

Shure Announces Exclusive Supreme SM58 Microphone



Shure is teaming up with another iconic brand as it has announced a limited-edition Supreme-branded Schure SM58 microphone. Since 1966, the SM58 has been an instantly recognizable icon for a variety of performances from legendary musicians and historic speeches from world leaders.

The combination of two powerful brands makes sense based on the shared characteristics of quality, authenticity and style.

“Shure and Supreme are both part of the same community of artists, musicians, and creators,” said Sean Bowman, Director, Retail Sales, Schure. “It was a natural fit to bring our teams together to help lift up their voices and create this exceptional microphone.”

The all-red microphone features the Supreme logo along the handle and comes equipped with a 25-foot red XLR cable, zipper pouch, and microphone clip.

The Shure SM58 is the top selling performance microphone in history, as it has been relied upon to deliver sound for some of the most important global events in the world.

Made to handle voice with clarity and care, the SM58 reproduces every note as it was intended, and leaves background noise behind. On any stage – from the club show to the stadium – the SM58 delivers warm, crisp sound, time after time.


Shure Released Super 55-BLK Microphone Pitch Black Edition

This limited edition microphone features a matte black die-cast base, black foam, and smooth frequency response for natural vocal reproduction, and comes with an integrated, swivel stand mount base and microphone bag, perfect for any performance on-stage and on-screen.

The Model 55 Unidyne defines classic microphone design just as much today as it did more than 75 years ago when it made its official debut. For vocal performers, the Super 55 Pitch Black Edition’s eye-catching black-on-black design is a twist on the classic and adds a sleek style to production.

The rigorously-tested supercardioid microphone cartridge rejects unwanted noise and prevents feedback. The shock-mounted cartridge and tough, die-cast case reduces handling noise and protects it from damage.

The Super 55 Pitch Black edition will be available through certified Shure retailers and online.

Shure is Auctioning Off Limited Edition SM58 Microphones

Shure Incorporated was founded in 1925 and is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading manufacturer of microphones and audio electronics. Shure’s product line includes world-class wired microphones, wireless microphone, award-winning headphones and more.

The Shure SM58 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone has been used faithfully by the world’s most influential musicians since 1966. To celebrate and honor the strong connection of the SM58 to legendary musicians, Shure has partnered with both Paul McCartney and The Who to make available at auction a one-time production of 600 serialized graphic painted SM58’s.

All of the proceeds generated from the campaign will go directly toward foundations for which both artists are deeply vested, including Paul McCartney’s Meat Free Monday and The Who’s Teen Cancer America.

The serialized microphone will come with graphics specific to each artist. The Paul McCartney Special Edition 50th Anniversary SM58 will feature cover art from the album Kisses on the Bottom, photographed by Mary McCartney, and The Who Special Edition will feature original artwork from graphic designer Richard Evans, who has been designing The Who’s album covers and promotional visuals since 1976.

Additionally, Shure will be auctioning off serial numbers 1-10, which feature hand-signed autographs on the microphone handles. The limited edition microphones will be available through eBay for Charity.

Shure Pushes for Dedicated Wireless Spectrum in UK



shure logoAlmost anything from common household toasters to large commercial audio systems can be wireless these days. And while this may simplify some things in terms of setup, and it does offer a certain level of convenience, it also creates a problem with signal congestion across the wireless spectrum. And when wireless frequencies begin to interfere with each other, this can cause the products that depend on those frequencies to malfunction. In an attempt to stem the tide of frequency encroachment, microphone manufacturer Shure is pushing the UK government to devote a portion of the wireless spectrum specifically to audio gear.

Shure believes that the best spot on the wireless spectrum for this type of gear is UHF bands IV and V or 470 – 854MHz. In recent years, much of this spectrum became available as UK television broadcasters switched from analog to digital. The UK government has already given the 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands over to mobile phone companies for use in their 4G networks. A spokesperson from Shure was quoted as saying that this wireless spectrum should be treated like any other kind of natural resource, and that it’s necessary for the government to put some kind of controls in place so all of the spectrum doesn’t get completely used up for things like cell phones. Preserving this part of the spectrum for wireless microphones and related devices would ensure that future live events can happen without any worry of electromagnetic interference ending the show.
