“Not only do they look impressive, the technology and engineering behind them is first class, and the sound produced is like nothing you would have heard before.”

“A great deal of planning, R&D, engineering, testing, and highly appreciated investor funds have been spent since our amazing HPEL transducer technology was born out of the initial Warwick University research. More than a decade later, Warwick Acoustics Ltd continues to break new ground in redefining the way consumers experience the music they love. With our multi-award winning headphone systems and pioneering system development for the rapidly evolving Automotive industry, I am nothing short of thrilled that our flagship headphone system is now stocked in the UK’s flagship retail store, Harrods.”
