With more than 50 years in the speaker industry, Elipson offers a range of hi-fi products and stylish spherical speakers, including the Elipson Planet speakers, which take inspiration from the highly regarded BS30 vintage design (circa 1960).

Founder Joseph Leon, born in Bordeaux 1908, was an engineer from the School of Arts and Crafts and passionate in acoustic research. Elipson began in 1938 as a company called Multi-Engine which manufactured toy engines of miniature electric trains. The company's current director and engineer Henry Bazin Maurice Latour made a decision to move towards the development of speakers consisting of a sphere and an ellipsoidal reflector in 1940.

Joseph Leon aimed to concentrate all of the loudspeaker's acoustic energy through the reflector to enhance sound in an ultra-modern design that hadn't been seen before. In developing the system of the conch, Elipson allows sound to use a large space with precision and quality. Each model was worked for a place with a specific commitment; a vent, a specific speaker, a special reflector ellipsoid.

In 1948 Joseph became CEO of the company, going on to change its name to Elipson and instilling research on all-round reflectors and resonators etc. By 1960 the company began the search channel speaker with numerous patents.

Joint research resulted in a first series of around twenty models oriented at 30 degrees with an elliptical princeps, a shift in medium (HP Cabasse), a micro Melodium as a tweeter and positioned mechanical shift to optimize the phase response with other speakers. This model is legendary for its technical advances and aesthetic helping Leon become medallist of the Order of Merit for research and invention.

This collaboration also delivered another legendary model 4050 as well as the accompanying series including the 4240, 502, 402. This assured the public of the success of smaller models like the BS40 and 4040 which were sized for apartments.

In 2009, the company returned to the sources of expertise, with a series of spherical enclosures, L planet that were a modern evolution of the 4050 and the 4260. To meet the needs of both communities and individuals, Elipson offers a range of integrated speakers. High definition and very versatile, these can be used for many applications including conference rooms, shopping centres, amphitheatres, restaurants, shops, hotels, business premises, private dedicated rooms, schools.

Elipson's range will please your eyes as much as your ears and also includes a range of speaker packages, from simple 2.1 desktop solutions, to 5.1 speaker packages for home cinema, through to the highly impressive Sound Tree.

We have a range of closed back design headphones, which offer impressive isolation and passive noise attenuation thanks to the nature of their design keeping the majority of your music in, and most external noise out. These are ideal for personal use, noisy environments and commuting.

Alternatively, open-back headphones are favoured by many due to their spacious and open sound profile, which comes about due to the open nature of their design. Open back headphones are primarily recommended for home use as the open design means sound is leaked, and so they are preferable in quiet environments.

With the popularity of portable music devices, the selection of earphones available has increased dramatically. We offer a range of earphones ranging from budget models designed to offer an improvement over standard giveaway earphones to high-end earphones designed to offer the performance of high-end headphones in a compact and portable package. Many earphones are of the in-ear variety – slotting into the ear canal, and offering excellent isolation and passive noise attenuation, enabling you to listen at quieter volumes and also use your earphones in noisy environments.

We also stock a range of headphone amplifiers, which offer dramatic improvements over the majority of standard headphone amplifiers featured in devices, computers or amplifiers. These amplifiers are designed specifically for use with headphones, and are unrivalled for detail, soundstage and precision when compared to similarly priced integrated solutions. We also stock a range of headphones accessories, ranging from headphones stands to spare earpads and headbands.
