The Sound Lion Experience

Hear the Roar at Sound Lion

At Sound Lion we believe that the best Personal Listening Experience comes from customizing specific product solutions to an individual’s taste and hearing structure. Everyone’s taste in music and sound is different, of course, but it's also important to know that everyone’s sense and perception of sound is different too. Depending on one’s ear structure (inside and outside), head size, age, and other factors, we all hear music and other sounds a bit differently. Additionally, all music listening products are made differently and are of differing quality.

The pathway to better sound, better music, and a customized listening solution is the Sound Lion Personal Listening Experience. At Sound Lion we offer the ability to try on different headphones at our Listening Bar. We believe that purchasing a listening product needs to be a customized experience during which several products are tested.

In each of our stores, our customers can hang out at our Listening Bar and try out a product before buying it. Customers can test it on our in-house music or bring in their own music.

We even offer our customers free support after the purchase of a sound product.
