American Music & Sound Distributes Westone Audio, Etymotic
American Music & Sound has announced it has taken on U.S. distribution for Westone Audio and Etymotic, both companies specializing in-ear monitors and hearing protection.
Westone Audio has been a pioneer of in-ear solutions since 1959, offering focused innovations, including the invention of the first custom in-ear monitor for stage use. Etymotic is a leader in development of technology addressing hearing health since 1983. Etymotic created the ER4 insert earphone, which was scientifically designed to be an accurate earphone. Westone Audio and Etymotic are subsidiaries of Lucid Hearing.
“We are absolutely ecstatic to have Westone Audio and Etymotic added to the AM&S family of brands,” said Kris McDougall, senior national sales manager for American Music & Sound. “Their decades of experience and superior brand equity in the in-ear monitor space, combined with our industry-leading sales and distribution competencies, are a real recipe for success. Furthermore, their solid grasp of both the pro-audio and consumer Hi-Fi markets pair beautifully with our existing offerings in both spaces.”
“We are more than excited to partner with AM&S to bring the Westone Audio and Etymotic music brands to an even wider audience,” said Tal Kocen, vice president of consumer product for Lucid Audio. “We know they will use their expansive retail relationships to share our deep legacy as both the inventor of the first custom in-ear monitors and the gold-standard of audio.”
