Shure Counterfeit Education

In today’s online world the spread of counterfeit products has gone global and the range of goods being copied is increasing significantly. Counterfeiters illegally copy leading brands for financial advantage and unfortunately they are targeting some of the top selling Shure products, in particular the SM58 and SM57. Like all counterfeit products, they may look like the real thing but the counterfeit knockoffs are made with inferior cheap components resulting in poor audio performance. Given the audio quality is so poor you may wonder why the trade in counterfeits has increased in recent time. We have found that customers are often tempted into buying fake product because the prices are so cheap and they say they looked like the real thing. If the price sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
