About Shure

S.N. Shure began his company's relationship with the products of personal sound by launching a one-man operation in 1925 that sold radio parts kits. Since then, Shure microphones and audio electronics have been the tools of choice for politicians, musicians, corporations, churches, and broadcasters across the world. Anyone who considers sound to be an important part of his or her self-expression has probably used one of Shure's microphones, phonograph needles, or other professional audio products.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Shure products.

4.5 out of 5 (52 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Perfect for Drummers and Keyboardists!!"
Sound: I've used this Mic for almost ten years and it's my favorite. The sound is great considering the size of the diaphragm, it responds like an SM58 for vocals but without the stand :) but an SM58 has a Diaphragm double the size(diameter)because of that you get much less feedback too when close to speakers and monitors, a real classic from shure. I've tried the wireless version too but this one is the most professional and flexible headset mic I ever seen. The Wireless is fine for Aerobics and Dance instructors, if you plan to go live, or record, get this one. Quality: Very rugged construction, after ten years still perfect, the protective hard case works great. Value: Good price for the benefit. Same price of a SM58 or 57 plus the stand and the cable (and the hassle) Manufacturer Support: Never had to call them. Overall: I've tried the wireless version too but this one is the most professional and flexible headset mic I ever seen. The Wireless is fine for Aerobics and Dance instructors, if you plan to go live, or record, get this one.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A conveniently cool little mic!"
Sound: I just used this product recently & was very impressed with the sound. I normally use a vocal condenser microphone & am used to the response of that. But for this being a dynamic microphone, it had a very natural sound. I enjoyed using it so much that I'm in the proccess of purchasing one! Feature: The very fact that I didn't need to use a microphone stand while playing drums was so nice. I didn't have to play my fills around a boom stand extension. Ease of Use: Place on head, plug in, and make noise! Quality: Typical Shure quality. Good stuff! Value: Excellent value! Manufacturer Support: I've used Shure products for more than 20 years. I've rarely had to get support for their gear, but when I've needed their support, they were great. (Plus, it doesn't hurt that I live 20 minutes away from the Shure factory!) The Wow Factor: I want it more out of need. This is, for me, the better product for the price. Overall: I expect to use this product until it is either lost/stolen or there are no more serviceable parts.
Style of Music: What ever pays the rent!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
