Audeze is overwhelmed by the headphone community’s response to the robbery. We all deeply appreciate your efforts. This is the community that encouraged us to begin building headphones and grow and we thank each and every one of you for your messages of support. We also want to acknowledge and thank our dedicated staff for pulling together and getting us back into production making LCD Series headphones. Team spirit is high and everyone at Audeze is back to building headphones.

Yesterday morning we learned there was the break-in at the Audeze factory. It looks like a well-planned coordinated job. The thieves crawled under and behind the racks to defeat our security system. Our finished goods inventory is wiped out and there is damage to our property. The thieves went through some of the raw materials and boxes and we are not sure of the full extent of the damage. The Costa Mesa police department is going through the factory collecting information and they’re being very helpful.
We’re a small company and all our employees are like family. Yesterday being Saturday was a holiday here. As news of the break-in spread many of our employees came to the office. A lot of them were worried about the consequences and what’s next if something of this magnitude happens to a small company like ours. Everyone was milling around the assembly line talking about how to get back on our feet.
