"Unless you’re somewhat of an audiophile, or you stumbled upon Sound Lion during a chance jaunt around Harvard Square, you probably still recognize the Apple earbud as the industry standard. It’s not. When customers first enter Sound Lion, they are quite often amazed at the breadth of audio companies that exist, and now they share a single retailer."

Your Headphones' Greatest Enemy

by Kyle C

Working at Sound Lion has granted me an amazing opportunity to talk to hundreds of people about music, audio technology and of course headphones.

Most people aren’t aware that their music streams are compressed, and that they are degrading their experience and ultimately holding back the potential of their mobile devices.

We Love That Dirty Water

by Evan Z

Boston is known for a great many things. Birthplace of The Revolution (American, not the group who played with Prince). Home of the Kennedys. Only having twenty-five letters in our alphabet. Wicked snowstorms. A Dunkin’ Donuts on every corner. But maybe above all else, our sports teams. Yes, sports are the true lifeblood of the city, the one binding and common theme that runs through all native Bostonians.

Rock and roll is dead. D-E-D dead.

by Evan Z

On May 16th, the final nail was driven into the rock music scene here in Boston. It was announced that Clear Channel, who owns the popular Top 40 station, as well as the top and only hip-hop station in town, acquired the last true bastion for new rock and alternative music in the city, 101.7 WFNX. Having grown up listening to 'FNX, it was a crushing blow not only to myself, but to many others in the area, including those who have roots in Boston.

Window NotesLong before our store opened, an enterprising student sparked an incredible community response with a simple question on our window - Who Inspires You?
