I'm in the market for new sound isolating earphones. I had Shure SE210 earphones for a few years which did really well (and were chosen on a Metafilter recommendation) but now I need a replacement. [more inside]
I'm hearing some odd noise in my office audio system and I'd like an opinion on what it could be. It appeared right after I replaced three old Shure SCM810 mixers with new versions of the same model. They are usually soft, as heard in this short clip here) but the occasionally sound much louder and become quite noticeable. It reminds me of the interference from Blackberry devices but it's clearly different. Could this be interference from some other device or is something else going on here? Thanks in advance.
I have three Shure SCM810 mixers, #1 linked to #2 linked to #3, and each is about 15 years old. A few weeks ago the mics on #2 began not working until around noon when they would work just fine for the rest of the day. This seemingly random occurrence has now become predictable in that the mixer won't work in the morning but works just fine later in the day. The feed from #1, which passes thru #2, was seemingly unaffected and continued to work regardless. In addition, the mics from #3 will sometimes exhibit problems gating on in the morning, requiring a much louder speaker volume than normal, but this also seems to resolve by later in the day. Any ideas? Is this a hardware failure inside the unit? Is this something else? And why the hell does it only work later in the day?!?
In Logic Pro, is there a way to add two Shure SM81 microphones (connected via Shure USB-to-XLR adapters) as separate tracks for recording? Currently, the only way I've been able to bring them into Logic Pro is as a merged or aggregate input device, which means the signals from the two mics are merged before going into one track. I do not want this, but instead wish to feed the signal from the two mics into two separate tracks. Is there a way to do this in Logic Pro with the equipment I have? [more inside]
We have two Shure brand wireless microphones, model number SLX2. One works perfectly fine, but the other one, not so much. Actually, it's fine most of the time, but is prone to blasts of static while someone is speaking into it. The events happen about 10 to 15 minutes apart, so it's not too annoying, but there is an issue. As far as I know, the batteries in it are brand new. Any thoughts on what the issue could be?
I know next to nothing about professional audio and need expert advice on how to use an intimidating-looking portable mic/line mixer for my office's webcast. What are all those knobs for?!? [more inside]
How to buy a mic flag: The first week of June I will be attending a meetup via my favorite tech podcaster and I want to gift him with a microphone flag for his Shure SM58 since he records his podcast LIVE every week. [more inside]
So I had a pair of Shure E4c-n I really liked that got destroyed. I am thinking about buying a pair of Shure SE425s. Are there any comparable earbuds I should be checking out? A couple other things inside. [more inside]
I am in urgent need of in-ear earphones for use on a number of long flights I have to take in the coming months. I've narrowed down my choices to the Shure e2c or the Sony MDRNC22. The Shure is noise isolating, the Sony is noise cancelling. Which is better? The shure's seem to go deeper into the ear. Will that get uncomfortable?

I've been given a pair of Shure SE310 earphones for Christmas. This is fantastic. However, Etymotic makes the ER6s which can be fitted into custom earplug molds. I happen to already have the custom earplug molds for my musician's earplugs. Should I keep the Shures or exchange them for ER6s? [more inside]
Someone mentioned offhand, several months ago, that he knew of a deal to pick up a package of 2 Shure SM-57s for $50 or something like that, some amazing deal, from a catalog. I've searched high and low and I've still never seen anything like that, about the best I can find is $85 per mic. Am I misremembering? Does anyone know of a deal like this?
I've got a pair of Shure e2c's for listening to music on my iPod and as noise cancelling discreet headphones go, they're great. However as comfortable and secure in the ear headphones go, they suck. What am I doing wrong? [more inside]
