How You 
Listen

The Oda System is designed to be as immersive as possible.
The Oda System
Our home listening system is designed to create a sonic experience that is warm, enveloping, and direct. Our Lighthouse Receiver connects you directly to our broadcasts, lighting up when a new transmission is ready for your ears. Our handmade speakers — constructed elegantly with wood that resonates like a cello — act as portals into distant and intimate worlds creating connection through immersive sound.
  • ...a crisp, realistic sound energy that mimics a live performance, right down to the slight imperfections of the instruments...

    – Dave Brooks, Billboard

Felt like a prayer I didn’t even know I had been praying for was granted.

I loved the freshness of the moment... One of this year’s true highlights.

It’s such a decadently beautiful way to experience live music!!

From Our Preview Listeners
A Physical Sound
This is the heart of it: the soundboard.
We've spent three years tuning this piece of wood
Resonant
Music radiates from a resonant wood panel, just like the body of a cello. Cascading sound like the light from a chandelier.
Physical
You can almost touch the sound. Stereoscopic vocals, piano, strings and brass with uncanny presence, clarity and warmth.
Dimensional
A sound that’s dimensional. A sound that makes it feel like the artist is just inches away from you.
The shift in quality and texture in the audio was notable [...] it sounded like Laraaji was actually in the room
The Quietus
...a crisp, realistic sound energy that mimics a live performance, right down to the slight imperfections of the instruments...
Billboard
...disturbingly intimate…

Built Like an Instrument
Oda's Secret to Unique and Beautiful Sound
Oda Speakers are built using techniques drawn from traditional crafts like bookbinding, light aircraft construction, and, of course, luthiery.
They’re made of wood, glass, cotton, and steel: materials that are humble and human, not technological.
Simply put: They're built like instruments, so they make instruments sound beautiful.
Painstakingly Tuned

The Intuition of an Artist
Oda’s designer, Perry Brandston, grew up in New York institutions like CBGB and Carnegie Hall. He has been making speakers most of his life. Conceived and designed in the East Village of Manhattan, we have been perfecting these speakers since 2016.

Transformed by a Leading Acoustician
Benjamin Zenker of the University of Dresden, a world-leading acoustician, transformed the speakers into something worthy of our mission; music that is live for the artist and for you. His design rejects heavy audio filters and brings listeners an honest experience.
We Made Oda Because We Love Music More Than Anything Else In The World

We really do. Most of us have spent our professional lives working with artists and sound. Live music is a vital part of our lives, and we want it to be a vital part of yours. We believe all of us should be doing our part to preserve the cultural value of music.
