Raid Seizes 8500 Counterfeit Shure Earphones

Shure last month announced that it had a victory in the company’s fight against counterfeiting as a result of close cooperation with Chinese authorities.

An investigation initiated by Shure in Futian District, Shenzhen, in Mainland China led to a raid by the Shenzhen Administration for Industry and Commerce (AIC) on a wholesale shop, Sanze Electronics, in the Zhongdian Electronics and Technology Building on Huaqiang Road, and another at an associated warehouse.

“Counterfeiting is not just a problem for Shure,” said Sandy LaMantia, Shure’s President and CEO.  “This is a serious issue that impacts our entire industry.  Every brand of professional audio and consumer electronics is at risk because of this criminal activity.  Shure continues to cooperate with other brands in joint actions and criminal prosecutions in China to present a united front against this illegal activity.”
