About Us

SOEN was founded by industry leading audio engineers, designers and craftsmen brought together by their passions to create the world's finest audio products. Digital music and smart devices have liberated the personal entertainment. But SOEN founders felt the existing audio technologies were failing to provide good sound from smaller form factors. The design and quality of most incumbent products was also un-inspiring and clutter-some. Inspired by music and driven for perfection, the SOEN team embarked on a mission to enrich lives with superior technologies and best-in-class products. SOEN audio wizards have developed cutting-edge technologies that deliver stunning sound from amazingly small spaces. This miniaturization of high-performance enables the SOEN designers to create beautiful and intelligent products. With a magical synthesis of design and performance, SOEN products provide an unparalleled immersive experience.
