Meyer Sound embarks on a new era.


25 January 2024

Meyer Sound, a pioneer in professional audio since its founding in 1979, is celebrating 45 years of innovation with a new logo that underscores its commitment to the future of sound. This rebranding initiative highlights Meyer Sound’s continuous dedication to pushing boundaries, advancing technologies, and shaping the industry for the next generation.

A Legacy of Innovation

Meyer Sound has been a driving force in audio ever since John and Helen Meyer set up shop in Berkeley, CA four-and-a-half decades ago. From its inception, the company’s mission has been clear: to create the best sonic experiences the world has ever heard.

Since then, Meyer Sound’s trailblazing technologies, including trapezoidal loudspeaker cabinets, self-powered loudspeakers, processor-controlled loudspeaker systems, curvilinear arraying, and source-independent measurement systems, have become industry standards. The company’s inventions have earned more than 100 patents and numerous prestigious awards, including TEC Awards, Parnelli Awards, and the R&D 100 Award.

“Scientific innovation, engineering excellence, an unwavering commitment to quality, and constant evolution—this is our legacy, and our future,” says Meyer Sound Senior Vice President John McMahon. “Our dedication to craft defines us, and we’re excited to carry this spirit forward as we set our sights on developing integrated sound solutions on an even broader scale.”

Investing in the Future of Sound

As Meyer Sound embarks on a new era, it focuses on key initiatives in multiple areas:

The company continues to shape the future of audio technology, building on the successes of its PANTHER™ large-format linear line array and 2100-LFC™ low-frequency control element and an expanded investment in integrated solutions and digital systems, including the Nebra™ software platform and the NADIA™ integrated digital audio platform. And by actively advancing industry standards, from a leading role in the Avnu Alliance® to the AES75 initiative, Meyer Sound is at the forefront of furthering the state of the art.

From its 38-year partnership with the Montreux Jazz Festival to ongoing collaborations with the Roskilde Festival, the Telluride Film Festival, and TED Conferences, Meyer Sound’s strategic alliances showcase a dedication to delivering exceptional audio experiences and commitment to supporting the arts both in the local community and around the world.

Education is central to Meyer Sound’s mission, with comprehensive and science-based programs tailored to all disciplines and experience levels. The company’s newest offerings, marked by new partnerships and expanded in-person classes and online content, underline a significant investment in nurturing future industry leaders. Advocating for diversity, equity, and inclusivity, the company actively champions women, gender-expansive individuals, and other underrepresented communities in audio.

Meyer Sound strives to minimize its carbon footprint, following sustainable manufacturing practices and envisioning future product innovations with a green perspective.

A New Logo: A Symbol of Evolution

Accompanying Meyer Sound’s 45th-anniversary celebration is a bold new logo that encapsulates the company’s evolution and readiness for the future.

The versatile new design features heavier wave and type forms, filling more of the space it occupies and exuding a stronger presence. It is a visual representation of Meyer Sound’s commitment to staying at the forefront of an evolving industry landscape and maintaining a clear and bold identity.

“The goal with the new logo was to create a mark that respects our history while better reflecting the scope of our business growth and strategic direction,” explains Meyer Sound’s Creative Director Simon Miller. “In a world where Meyer Sound’s presence spans diverse platforms, the robust, modern design ensures an iconic presence that matches the strength of our technologies.”

“This anniversary marks a time of transformative growth for Meyer Sound,” adds McMahon. “As we double down on our investments in both acoustic innovations and digital ecosystems, our emphasis on partnerships, education, diversity, and sustainable solutions will drive our next chapter as we aspire to help people experience sound in ground-breaking new ways.”
