Shure Releases New Recommendations for Cleaning Its Products

by | Apr 7, 2021 | Audio, News, Operations, Production

Shure has released a new series of recommendations that are designed to help users clean their audio equipment. Developed through in-depth testing, the guidelines provide “best practices.” These practices will assist in protecting the products’ material, finish and hardware, even after repeated, long-term cleaning routines.

“Shure has been dedicated to exceptional quality for more than 95 years – as part of this commitment, we want to help our customers care for the entire lifespan of their product and ensure its longevity,” says Eduardo Vives, Senior Director of Corporate Quality Engineering at Shure. “Through extensive and repeated testing, we have developed some key guidelines to help users clean their Shure gear, while minimizing impact to technology and materials.”

The Step-by-Step Instructions and Video Content on Cover:

— Which cleaning agents and methods can be used on Shure equipment

— How to control the flow of liquid cleaners to avoid damaging the product technology

— How to repeatedly clean the following products to minimize long-term damage: wired and wireless handheld microphones, lavalier/headworn mics, bodypack transmitters/receivers, and conferencing products

While these recommendations are intended to maintain best practices, they’re intended only as a general guide to cleaning methods. Shure cannot advise on which methods may be effective against the COVID-19 virus, so any such questions should be directed to appropriate disease control experts.

In the coming months, the company states that it will continue to test new cleaning procedures and may expand its recommendations to include additional products and product lines.
