Vinyl Kombat champ Illtraxx
Shure Inc. will award $50,000 to three organizations in support of hearing conservation: the Deafness Research Foundation, the Kresge Hearing Research Laboratory at Louisiana State University, and the House Ear Institute (HEI).
In addition to these donations, Shure’s regularly provides free hearing screenings and distributes hearing protection devices at pro audio industry trade shows, music conferences and festivals, and to their own employees.
“The donated funds will be used by these organizations to fund research studies, provide free hearing screenings, and create educational materials for public awareness campaigns,” says Shure president and CEO Sandy LaMantia.
In other Shure news, the company announced Illtraxx as the first national champion of Vinyl Kombat, the microphone manufacturer’s new U.S. DJ battle. The national finals were held earlier this month at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.
