It's good to be king. In the world of microphones, even Shure's competitors would have to agree that indeed, Shure is king. They are the best-known name among all microphone manufacturers, and since 1925, have spearheaded innovations in microphone technology that have signaled the way for the rest of the industry. From its earliest days as a manufacturer of broadcast microphones, through the heyday of the Shure SM58 and SM57, still two of the biggest-selling microphones in history, through the current day, their leadership in microphones for stage and studio is legendary. Their product focus has expanded to wireless technologies, headphones, ear buds, DJ products, and other fields, and they are a consistent world leader in every endeavor they pursue.
