Hefio is a spin-off venture that began in one of the world’s leading centers in the field of audio engineering at the Spatial Sound Lab of Aalto University, Finland.
2012 — The journey starts
The publication of the doctoral thesis of Hefio’s founder, Marko Hiipakkka, in 2012 laid the groundwork for Hefio’s self-calibrating headphones. Marko’s research revealed how to optimize headphone calibration in an acoustically transparent manner. International recognition of this breakthrough calibration method is longstanding, beginning with the Best Paper Award at the 126th Convention of the Audio Engineering Society.
2014 — Hefio Oy
Hefio Oy was founded in 2014. Marko Hiipakka and a team of professional acoustic developers took their own challenge to create a revolutionary product which unleashes the potential of several new facets of the audio and acoustic industry. The team met the challenge with the release of the first generation of Hefio’s headphones.
