NILES, IL--Shure Incorporated announced large quantities of counterfeit microphones, which were being sold in India, were traced to their source, Easlem Sound Instrument Factory (also known as Xingyou Electronics Equipment Co. Ltd.) in Guangzhou, China.

"This is not just a Shure problem. It is a pro audio industry problem, and we are committed to fighting this criminal activity," said Sandy LaMantia, president and CEO of Shure Incorporated. "We are grateful to the authorities in China for their help in this raid and will vigorously continue our efforts in China and the rest of the world."

For months, Shure worked with private investigators and local authorities in China to uncover the location of the counterfeiter's manufacturing operations. In cooperation with the Jiangmen and Enping Technology and Science Bureaus (TSBs), Shure raided Easlem's Enping City-based factory, known as Enping Yi Xing Electronics, where evidence was obtained that the factory was producing counterfeit Shure and other brands of microphones.
