ShureShure Radio Company is founded in April 1925 by Sidney N. Shure as “Shure Radio Company “ in downtown Chicago. The company is world-famous as a manufacturer of microphones.

The Shure Vagabond, introduced 1952, was the first wireless system for live performances. The Shure Unidyne III was presented in 1959. In 1965 Shure developed the Shure SM57, this is still the official microphone of the US president since Lyndon Johnson first used it, only one year later the Shure SM58 was born and it is the most successful microphone on the market to date. In 1984 the Shure SM91 was the first unidirectional boundary-effect microphone to be introduced to the mass market.
In 1995 Sidney N. Shure passed away at the age of 93. His wife Rose L. Shure is elected chairman of the board of directors. After its market entry in 1997 the personal stereo monitor system PSM 600 dominates the market for “in-ear” monitoring systems. 2003 Shure is the fifth company ever to be awarded the Technical GRAMMY by the National Academy of the Recording Arts.
