On day one of our Ask Me Anything Livestream Events at AES 2014, we sat down with Matt McArthur, executive director of The Record Company.
After graduating from the Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s degree in music production and engineering, Matt McArthur co-founded The Record Company, New England’s first professional nonprofit recording studio, to give Boston’s community of young musicians a place to hang out, learn and record their compositions. According to The Record Company’s website, the organization bridges the gap between up-and-coming talent and access not only to a recording studio, but also to “the decades-long tradition of professional musical recording: a tradition encompassing concepts of professional conduct, mentorship, technical expertise, creativity, and more.”
We ended the first month of 2015 with a bang as we packed our bags and ventured to the Golden State for one of the largest trade shows in the music industry: the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show.
The Lennon Bus travels around the United States educating students and audio enthusiasts by way of a state-of-the-art mobile recording facility. The bus is committed to providing students with customized studio sessions that teach them to write, record and produce music. The portable studio is equipped with all of the latest audio technology, including Audio-Technica pro microphones and headphones.
One of the Lennon Bus highlights from NAMM was a very special guest appearance by the legendary George Clinton. George hopped aboard the Lennon Bus to give a professional musician’s perspective on the audio world. The Lennon Bus also hosted “The Imagine Party,” an epic event celebrating music education that was capped off with a performance by George and Parliament Funkadelic.
If you are lucky enough to catch The Lennon Bus this year, we encourage you to pose for a photo with the larger than life Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones. Hundreds of A-T fans lined up at NAMM 2015 for a photo with our iconic #BigM50!
January is the beginning of the New Year, and a huge time for us at Audio-Technica. The dust has just settled from CES, and we’re already here at the next big event of the year: the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show.
From January 22 to January 25 audio product manufacturers, music industry professionals and artists from far and wide will be in Anaheim, California, to see the latest pro audio technology.
Here’s a peak at what we’re showing off at NAMM 2015.
Attendees from all over the world show up to see the hottest new tech gadgets – everything from audio equipment and drones to wearables and even stuff like smart planters at the annual Consumer Electronics Show.
Each year the event seems to get bigger and brighter, and the 2015 show was certainly no exception. We’ve been attending CES for years, with many a successful week under our belts, but this time out we really wanted to do something different. So after many arduous brainstorming sessions and multiple booth mock-ups, we finally reached a decision: What better way to bring in 2015 than with a CES rock climbing wall!
We’re having a blast at CES 2015! We’ve been showing off our newest products including headphones, gaming headsets, and even some new color turntables! Our booth is uniquely designed to show visitors how to get the most out of our new SonicSport® In-ear Headphones, complete with a rock climbing wall!
The holidays are behind us and we’ve ushered in a New Year, which can only mean one thing; the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has finally arrived!

At day two of our Ask Me Anything Livestream Events at AES 2014, we sat down with audio legends Dave Pensado and Herb Trawick of the massively popular Pensado’s Place.
