Shure Incorporated was founded by S.N. Shure in 1925, who sold kits to build radios. In the 1930s, when factory-made radios became available, the Company began to manufacture microphones. Shure was contracted by the U.S. government to make specialized microphones for military tanks, ships, and aircraft in the 1940s, and adopted manufacturing and testing procedures to ensure that products would withstand the rigors of battle. Today, Shure products are legendary for their ruggedness and dependability, including the Shure SM58®, the most popular vocal microphone in the world for the past 50 years.

Most recently, Shure has developed breakthrough technologies in wireless, audio networking, and personal listening products. Shure envisions growing from a legacy of rock solid hardware, to a future consisting of intelligent microphones and speakers, where everything in-between is software.
