With a history of innovation that began in 1925, Shure Microphones has turned a passion for making great microphones and audio electronics into an obsession. Shure continues to set the worldwide industry standard for superior, reliable products.
Shure Radio Company is founded on April 25 by S. N. Shure as a one-man company selling AM radio kits and components. Mr. Shure’s office is located at 19 South Wells Street in downtown Chicago.
Shure becomes a prime supplier of microphones and headphones to the Allied Forces. The T-17B Shure Microphone becomes the most widely used microphone by the U.S. Army and Navy. Shure develops Bakelite cases for these mics, preventing them from getting too hot to handle in armoured vehicles while conserving scarce metal for the war effort.
Shure is one of the largest Original Equipment Manufacturers of phonograph cartridges in the U.S., supplying major companies, such as Philco, RCA, Emerson, Magnavox, Admiral, and Motorola.
Shure Brothers Company becomes Shure Brothers Incorporated.

Are Shure Microphones Good?
The Shure SM7B is the go-to dynamic mic for vocals in pro studios around the world. And it should be the go-to mic for home studios as well because it's not that expensive. While it's particularly suited for rock vocals, it's also extremely popular for all varieties of broadcasting.
