Shure donates $50K to hearing conservation
Microphone and personal monitor manufacturer Shure announced today that it would donate $50,000 this year to four organizations as part of the Shure Listen Safe program. The four organizations are: the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) Scholarship Foundation; Columbia College of Chicago; Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers (H.E.A.R.); and House Ear Institute (HEI) of Los Angeles.
