Some big names in rock music came together last week with a charity gig in aid of KILLING Cancer. Bryan Adams, Richard Ashcroft, Jeff Beck, Debbie Harry & headliners The Who joined forces at Hammmersmith Apollo to raise awareness for this Charity.
KILLING Cancer supports Photodynamic Therapy, a treatment which could potentially treat many of the most devastating cancers and medical conditions.
Pictures of the gig are available, and judging by them, it seemed that a good time was had by all.
At the NAMM Show taking place in sunny Anaheim, USA, we’ve just introduced several new products and here we have the first pictures and details about them……….
The PSM 1000 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System offers a dual channel, full-rack professional monitoring solution. It is designed to tightly integrate with Shure Wireless Workbench software for the most efficient set-up and control plus with a true diversity-equipped, low profile bodypack receiver, the PSM 1000 system provides the best in audio and RF performance.
For semiprofessional DJ’s and audio enthusiasts Shure has developed the SRH550DJ. This ultra-lightweight headphone has full range frequency response with enhanced bass. Its closed-back, supra-aural design with adjustable collapsible headband and 90° swivel ear cups make it suitable for both DJ mixing or general listening.
The new high end SRH940 headphones are designed for critical monitoring and mastering applications in professional studios. The SRH940 provides accurate response across the entire audio spectrum delivering smooth high-end extension with tight bass. The premium padded headband and velour ear cup pads offer superior comfort for long recording sessions.
The SE215 Sound Isolating™ Earphones deliver detailed audio with extended bass. A detachable, Kevlar® reinforced cable with formable wire allows for easy replacement and secure, comfortable fit.
We expect that these cool new products will be available in Europe during the first half of 2011 – fingers crossed!

“I love to use Shure In Ear Monitors when I’m on tour, the sound is perfect and they’re always reliable. I find that once I have set my monitor mix I feel like I’m inside the gig, I get the bottom, middle and high end of the Spectrum….Shure 4 Life!”
