Andrea Electronics is an American-owned technology business founded in 1934. In the early 50’s, Andrea was among the very first elite U.S. television manufacturers including what was referred to as the Cadillac of TVs at the World's Fair. In the 60’s the company designed the capsule’s intercom communication system used in the first manned Mercury space flight and military intercoms for F16 fighter jets and helicopters. In 1998 Andrea pioneered microphone array technology, which has become a standard for hands free VoIP communication embedding its advanced noise cancellation technology into millions of computers being produced by global manufactures such as Dell, and HP. After 75 years of predominantly working with NASA and the Department of Defense as well as doing OEM work for several companies, Andrea Electronics decided to take their gathered portfolio of patented technologies and create their own headset line. These headsets are multipurpose as they handle gaming, VoIP, music, and recording. www.andreaelectronics.com
