Shure Incorporated is a global manufacturer of microphones and audio electronics that amplify, process and mix sound. Established in North America in 1925, the company initially contracted by the US Government to make specialized microphones for the military. As a result, rigorous manufacturing and testing processes were adopted. Their customer base is global and diverse, and includes musicians, audio engineers, lecturers, broadcasters, videographers, sound contractors, and content creators.
