^^this used to be a misnomer^^
Periodic Audio is the first and only company exclusively focused on making proper mega-buck Hi-Fi performance not only plausible, but possible in portable form factors.
For decades "fuck you money" Hi-Fi brands have been using batteries in their mega-buck products.
For decades mass-market focused brands have been using batteries in their 'good enough' portable products.
As professional audio product designers we were confused as to why the innovations in battery technology weren't being applied by big Hi-Fi brands.
Now Periodic Audio's product focus is High Fidelity Portable Audio products.
TL;DR: We travel a lot for work and have a lizard-brain aversion to shit sound. We build products we want to travel with.
