2016 Year In Review
At the beginning of the New Year, we'd like to share a short recap of where we've been and where we're going in 2017. Thank you for being part of the journey!
We started LSTN to change lives through the power of music. Because of your purchases, we've been able to help thousands of people throughout the world hear for the first time. In April, the LSTN team joined Starkey Hearing Foundation in the Dominican Republic, where we helped over 1,400 people receive the hearing care they needed. Starkey also visited South Africa, India, Nicaragua, Guyana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, China, the U.S., Afghanistan, and many more areas around the world in 2016. We couldn't be more proud to be their partner in giving the gift of hearing!
In 2016 LSTN went wireless - we released our line of portable speakers, the Satellite and Apollo, our sweat-proof workout earbuds, the Bolt, and the bluetooth version of our star product, the Troubadours.
In 2016 we kicked off our global partnership with Chivas Regal. The team traveled to Scotland to learn how whiskey is made (yay!) and obtain the wood we made these gorgeous headphones out of. Here in Los Angeles we created a limited edition, bespoke listening station also made partially from Chivas staves. Pick up the LSTN x Chivas Regal tin in airports, liquor stores and specialty/luxury retailers around the globe through 2017, and learn more about our partnership here!
We were lucky to have celebrities from Jack White to Kim Kardashian to the cast of New Girl wearing our gear, and to get quite a few write-ups in our favorite magazines and blogs. Here are a couple highlights:
- GQ - Speakers and Console
- Oak Street
Soon, we'll be announcing the biggest partnership we've ever done. We've worked on this for 3 years and couldn't be more excited to unveil it to the world. Stay tuned for new product and partnership announcements shortly!
