Earsets have a mount that wraps around one ear, while headsets further stability by using an adjustable band that… View this post

Over the years, the Beaux Arts style theater has gone through several iterations before being shuttered by floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The historic venue was purchased in February 2014 and underwent a $13 million, 18-month renovation to both restore and redevelop the theater into a multi-use facility, which included the installation of Martin Audio‘s… View this post
