Sony Enters Agreement to Acquire Audio Brand Audeze, But They Will Continue to be Multiplatform

Sony has announced that they have entered an agreement to acquire Audeze, “a leading audio technology brand and pioneer of high-end gaming headphones.” The purpose of this acquisition is to enhance the audio experience of PlayStation games, but the company will still be independent and develop its products multi-platform. So, they won’t be solely making items for Sony.

Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President, Platform Experience at Sony Interactive Entertainment, said the following about this agreement:

“Audeze is a premier brand for headphones, and this acquisition highlights Sony Interactive’s focus on innovation and providing the best audio experience to PlayStation players. We’re excited to bring Audeze’s expertise into the PlayStation ecosystem, building on the great strides we’ve made with PlayStation 5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech and the Pulse 3D wireless headset.”

Sankar Thiagasamudram, CEO at Audeze, said the following about this agreement:

“Sony Interactive provides Audeze with a unique opportunity to scale our business, as we continue with our mission to deliver best-in-class headphones to recording professionals, audiophiles, and gamers. We’re also looking forward to contributing to Sony Interactive’s efforts to take PlayStation audio experiences to the next level.”
