Since 2009, PHONON has been on a mission to convey the imagination of music in pure, original sound.
Musicians rarely hear the sound they actually want to produce. The sound quality of loudspeakers and recordings is always degraded—but does it have to be? We say no.
Rather than improving existing systems, PHONON sets out to create new solutions. We devise new tools and new ways of thinking to reconfigure everything from recording to playback. Using innovative ideas and technologies, we develop products that transcend the usual categories.
PHONON is a new-generation Japanese audio brand passionate about conveying the imagination of music in pure, original sound. Founded in 2010 by sound professionals, musicians, and music lovers in Tokyo (the highly respected sound engineer Isao Kumano with the DJ and music producer Alex from Tokyo), PHONON produces state-of-the-art Japanese professional audio equipment.
