August 6, 2010

NILES, IL, July 28, 2010 – Shure Incorporated today announced the SRH240m+ Headset with Remote + Microphone, which is the first headphone headset in the Company’s line of professional quality audio accessories for smartphones and portable music players. The SRH240m+ combines the professional audio performance of Shure’s SRH240 Headphones, with the added convenience of an inline microphone and controls that enable Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod users to get the most functionality out of their devices.
 
“We’ve had great success with our professional headphones since they were first introduced last year, which is why we decided to introduce the first smartphone headset option for customers who prefer headphones,” said Matt Engstrom, Category Director for Listening and Monitoring Products at Shure.  “Most of the headsets in the market today are in-ear models. We’re excited to be one of the only companies to offer smartphone users this over-the-ear option.”
