Wireless Systems

It's been over a decade since Shure cut the cable. Now, there's barely any stage, anywhere, that hasn't hosted a Shure wireless system. Whether it's a high school gym, a church, a local bar, a concert hall, or a stadium, you can count on the fact that Shure has been there.

Presenters and performers love the freedom and flexibility that wireless can provide. Singing or speaking, vocal or instrumental, we bring the sound and reliability of our microphones to the world of wireless.

How reliable? When failure is not an option, our UHF systems are there, whether it be the Grammy® Awards, the Oscars®, top touring artists, or network broadcasters. And it doesn't stop there. Our wireless systems come in many varieties, accessible to new performers and seasoned veterans alike.

Personal Monitors

Hearing conservation. Personal control. Portability. Superior sound quality. Mobility. The Shure PSM family of personal monitors are the smart alternative to floor wedges, giving you the straight line to achieving your best performance, time after time. Countless numbers of today's musicians are fully realizing how consistent and accurate their performances can be when they can actually hear themselves onstage. Hardwired or wireless, there is nothing like the protection and control that can be yours with the PSM Personal Monitor Systems - the new onstage standard.

 

 Mixers and Audio Processors

After we went wireless, we set our sights on digital audio. We've moved beyond our classic portable mixers and preamps to audio processors that ensure smooth sailing behind the scenes. From automated mixing and feedback control, to broadcast field production and digital signal processing, Shure offers a multitude of innovative products.

 Phonograph Cartridges

No turntable - or pair of turntables - is complete without Shure phonograph cartridges. Classic models such as the M44-7 are the choice of world champion turntablists and aspiring scratch DJs. All Shure cartridges employ our patented low-mass, high-output moving magnet structure. With their high tracking ability, Shure cartridges are very gentle on irreplaceable vinyl records, using polished, natural diamond-tipped styli for precise, musical signal tracing.
