We are a start-up manufacturer based in California with our manufacturing site in Tennessee. We are exhibiting for the very first time at this RMAF & launching our entry-level R1 series & R2 series.
It started with a few questions about universal in-ear monitors;
Why do they all look so similar (with the cable on the top part)?
Why do they keep on falling out?
Can we get a ‘customized-fit’ with universal in-ear monitors?
Can we have all that at an affordable cost?
Our team behind the products is a combination of professionals from the recording industry, performing vocalists, musicians, audiophiles, acoustic engineers, human-ergonomics professionals, materials experts & marketing specialists coming together to create in-ear monitors with a renewed approach to ergonomics while keeping the acoustic qualities appreciated and expected by the performing artists and audiophiles.
We believed and knew we can do a better design and decided to take on this challenge. The initial experiments created more questions than answers but we have a tough team and after nearly eighteen months of non-stop hard work, arguments and multiple versions of prototype tests, we all knew we were on a new approach to the in-ear monitor design with the fitting kits.
We partnered with proven solutions of ergonomic fitting designs as well as with performing artists & audiophile reviewers to test our designs for both fit, acoustics, attenuation & comfort and we used this valuable feedback to improve the final product and our designs have been awarded patents in the U.S., the European Union & other countries.
We believe the final product is a renewed design approach for universal in-ear monitors, getting a quality product with the customized fit, a neutral acoustic signature and to keep such a product affordable.

The Paradigm Brand Story
Most speaker companies were started and run by a clever guy who had specific ideas about what was important in speaker design. He typically implemented his ideas with off the shelf parts, put them into cabinets, wired up a crossover and sold them. People’s reactions tended to be either love or hate – which led to the belief that what defines a good speaker is purely subjective.
However, Paradigm isn’t like most speaker companies. We combine science, engineering, art and manufacturing to produce speakers that are not only better sounding, but integrate better into the home and provide a better value.
We base all of our speaker development and design on landmark research that was done by Canada's National Research Council. Over two decades of double-blind listening tests with thousands of volunteers proved that 96% of people prefer speakers that have the following characteristics: flat, accurate midrange response; wide, smooth off-axis response (wide dispersion); and low distortion. We combine those parameters with industry-leading driver designs that gives every speaker we build significant low bass response and higher power handling than our competitors. The results are neutral sounding speakers with less of their own sonic signature, fuller bass and higher output than our competitors' designs.
We are known around the world for our performance and value. At the time Paradigm was founded in 1982, the top-ranking speakers that exhibited the 3 main NRC parameters were very expensive - out of reach of the average music lover at the time. So, Paradigm’s goal was to produce speakers that were preferable by 96% of the population, and also be accessible to the majority of people interested in music in their homes.
Paradigm's founders poured their money back into the company, building the largest, most complete speaker and electronics manufacturing facility dedicated to a single brand in North America, if not the world. This gives us an economy of scale that ensures the highest quality, performance, and value in the industry. Over time, repeat customers wanting something even better drove us to higher levels of performance with commensurately more luxurious industrial designs, fit and finish. As the prices rose in proportion to performance, being the best value in the market remained the same. Today we still rely on real science and engineering; we fine tune the speakers based on controlled listening sessions, wrap them in world class industrial designs, and build them ourselves from the ground up. Our approach produces speakers whose performance is less subjective or a matter of taste. Because they don't have a sound of their own they sonically get out of the way while gracefully integrating into a home. Paradigm speakers reveal the true essence of a recording better than any other brand of speakers in the world.
We love music and high-end audio and have been building products and providing services that support both for 45 years.
