Listen Technologies Corporation, Bluffdale, Utah-based provider of advanced wireless listening solutions, will mark a milestone anniversary on June 4, celebrating 25 years. Per a statement, the company offers assistive-listening and communication solutions that are easy to use and provide superior sound clarity and intelligibility.
“At its core, Listen Technologies is about inclusion,” says Russ Gentner, founder and advisor, Listen Technologies. “We started Listen Technologies to help people overcome the challenges that make hearing difficult — it’s frustrating to go to an event and not hear what is being said. Those challenges include hearing loss, language, background noise or poor acoustics. We have solutions that make clear audio accessible so everyone can hear and engage in exceptional experiences.”
Since its founding in 1998, Listen Technologies notes its commitment to delivering a positive experience for employees, partners, vendors and customers. “We strive to be the easiest company to work with,” adds Gentner. “That starts with our people — the heart of our organization — and fostering a culture that champions simplicity, customer support, and innovation, as well as designing straightforward, elegant solutions that consistently perform.”
A Global, Inclusive Organization
The company has grown from a group of entrepreneurial audio engineers to a global company. It now comprises a worldwide network of the audio industry’s best manufacturer’s representatives, resellers, integrators, dealers and consultants.
According to a statement, two of Listen Technologies’ co-founders were women. Today, women are in leadership roles throughout the organization. Moreover, they have representation in every department, from marketing and R&D to customer service and sales.
“I’m proud to lead Listen Technologies and build upon Russ’ vision,” adds Maile Keone, president and CEO, Listen Technologies. “Our focus on inclusion and delivering great experiences extends beyond product design. It’s a mindset that permeates our organization and is also how we show up for each other, our customers, partners and end users. The future is bright for our business and the AV industry.”
Exceptional Listening Solutions
Listen Technologies’ flagship product, ListenRF, is a scalable assistive -listening system that delivers powerful, clear sound. Per the company, it continues to delight end users and venue owners. Over the years, Listen Technologies also expanded its suite of solutions to include ListenIR and ListenTALK. Additionally, in 2014, Listen Technologies pioneered audio-over-Wi-Fi technology. With this, people can thus use their smartphones to access audio to hear more clearly.
Listen Technologies states that its solutions are now applicable in various venues and settings. These include houses of worship, higher education facilities, performing arts centers, courts, on tours and in manufacturing plants, around the world.
“Listen Technologies isn’t just the name of our organization; it’s also our business model,” remarks Sam Nord, vice president of global sales at Listen Technologies. “We help people hear better by listening to our customers and partners and creating technology and solutions to meet their unique needs.”
Celebrating at InfoComm 2023
Beginning in June, Listen Technologies will thus kick off its anniversary events at InfoComm 2023. Per a statement, Listen Technologies booth will be in the West Hall at InfoComm 2023. The tradeshow event will take place June 10 through June 16 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Fla.
