"Better Hearing and Speech Month" in May got off to a great start, thanks to the fundraising and awareness efforts of the Shure Bid for Hearing online charity auction, sponsored by audio manufacturer, Shure Incorporated (Evanston, Ill.). Intended to inform the 41 million Americans with hearing and speech problems that help is available, this month also serves as a time to educate the public about the hazards of noise and the importance of hearing protection.

On April 29, Shure's online charity auction went online to generate funds and increase awareness about hearing conservation. Music fans duked it out on eBay, bidding for 37 artist-signed mics, audio electronics and memorabilia. The auction was hosted on eBay, and all proceeds from the auction benefited Los Angeles-based House Ear Institute (HEI).

"We at HEI could not be happier with the cooperative fundraising effort in support of our Sound Partners program," said Jim Boswell, CEO of HEI. "We are proud to have Shure as one of our significant corporate partners, committed to our efforts to educate audio industry professionals on safe sound management and hearing conservation. We greatly appreciate Shure's leadership and support of our program."

Ending on May 10, and topping the charts, were these top five selling items:
Number One: Christina Aguilera Shure U2/Beta87 Wireless Microphone Transmitter, $810

Number Two: Ozzy Osbourne Shure U2/Beta 58 Wireless Microphone Transmitter, $615

Number Three: Phil Anselmo (Pantera) Shure Beta 58A Wired Vocal Microphone, $511

Number Four: Nelly Furtado Shure U2/Beta 58 Wireless Microphone Transmitter, $460

Number Five: Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) Shure U2/Beta 87 Wireless Microphone Transmitter, $456.29

The Shure Bid for Hearing auction grossed over $10,000. For a complete listing of artists who donated items, please visit
