Golden Ear Technology was founded in 2010 by Partners Sandy Gross and Don Givogue. Sandy Gross was originally co-founder of Polk Speakers as well as Definitive Technology. Don Givogue was also a partner at Definitive Technology and head of the engineering department. Their passion for manufacturing speakers continues today with Golden Ear Technology. Golden Ear is a term used within the industry for someone who hears exceptionally well. The team at Golden Ear does just that with many accolades throughout the years proving their expertise in Speaker Design and engineering.
The goal was to manufacture a new line of speakers utilizing a new design on the High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter design. This tweeter is found throughout the Golden Ear speaker line. The HVFR tweeter transmits the sound and moves the air by squeezing a pleated diaphragm, instead of pushing the air like a conventional tweeter. This allows for much greater efficiency, lower distortion, improved sound, and amazing detail. The Golden Ear team wanted to develop a line of speakers that are sonically superior, and performed as well as other speakers costing three, four, or five times as much. The Golden Ear sound is consistent throughout their lineup and at every price point.
