VOVOX was founded in 2002 by material engineer Jürg Vogt. Prior to the foundation, new products were developed over five years of intensive research. Initially with musician Kaspar Kramis, whose basal ideas substantially co-influenced the cables, many prototypes and concepts were created and tested. It was only a short time before the founding of the company when Jürg Vogt had the break-through and invented the novel design of the cables. This design is the reason for the uniqueness of VOVOX sound conductors and forms the basis of their outstanding sound quality as well as of their optimal handling properties for solid-core cables.VOVOX converted scepticism into enthusiasm in the shortest time. The company succeeded in convincing many professional musicians and sound engineers that VOVOX and their sound conductors were definitely in a league of their own.VOVOX assembles cables exclusively at their workshop in Ebikon / Lucerne, right in the heart of Switzerland. Also the production of the cables is carried out with partners located in Switzerland or close to the border in neighbouring countries. Suppliers from overseas are an option only in case VOVOX's quality requirements are so specific that they cannot be fulfilled locally. VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free.

MXL Microphones is the Professional Audio division of Marshall Electronics, a privately owned company specializing in industrial and consumer electronics. Marshall Electronics was founded in 1980 by Leonard Marshall, who owns and operates the company today, and his keen interest in microphones was the driving force behind the establishment of MXL Microphones.
Leonard Marshall was an electrical engineer in the early 1980s when he was introduced to audio and video cables made by a company based in Japan known as Mogami Cable. The audio cable was developed by Mogami's chief scientist and a Japanese university to show how material structure can improve sound. Marshall brought samples back to the U.S. and the clean, transparent sound quickly became the industry standard in professional recording studios. In 1985, Marshall began manufacturing cable assemblies with Mogami cable and high quality connectors. Today, Marshall Electronics is the leading Mogami distributor globally.
With his cable company established and growing, Marshall turned his attention to cameras and specialty lenses. Marshall was first to market with flat screen LCD monitor rack systems for television studios in 1995. Then in 1998, the first MXL branded microphone was launched.
The goal of MXL has been to employ innovative technology and design to manufacture high quality microphones at an affordable price. Years of research and development led to the launch of the MXL 2001 microphone introduced in 1998, followed by the MXL 2003 microphone in 1999. MXL developed and patented the innovative warm to bright switch found only in the MXL Genesis II, V67i Tube, and V67i. Taking advantage of Mogami's high sound quality, nearly all MXL microphones are internally wired with Mogami cable. MXL has grown to include microphones widely used in recording studios, live performance, broadcast, video conferencing, house of worship, court reporting, and video gaming.
MXL's headquarters, research and development center, and production operations are located within the Marshall Electronics facility in Torrance, California. MXL operates manufacturing facilities in the US, China, Japan, Korea and Russia.

In 2004 we started designing speakers for our own studios. Our motivation: Affordable speakers failed to meet our requirements in terms of sound quality.Following years of development, improvement and testing we managed to start our own manufacture. Finally, with the constant support and encouragement of our friends, we were able to present our first products to the public in 2010. As a result, we have inspired a lot of passion, enthusiasm and good vibrations around the world.
Dirk Brauner: When I decided to create my first tube microphone in 1993 based on my own design concepts, I could have never imagined that it would grow into the world-renowned company it is today.
Beginning simply from my desire to create a microphone that represented everything I wanted in tonal qualities and engineering, endeavoring beyond what others had achieved to date. Today, I am extremely proud that so many artists, engineers and producers share in my enthusiasm and joy. I share that joy today with a team of high-caliber colleagues who work in our steadily growing microphone factory, where we pursue a singular goal, namely, to construct the best microphones that we are capable of creating. With a self noise measurement below 11 db A and the highest possible dynamic range and sensitivity, Brauner microphones set a new benchmark in microphone technology.The technical perfection and the tonal aesthetics of our products are unique in this form. They have set new standards that have changed the view of the microphone. What was once an everyday item, which could be reduced to simple technical parameters, was transformed into an active design element, in effect a piece of art, which is a tool for art.
