Audio-Technica has been selected as the official headphone supplier for the recently-opened GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, with more than 60 pairs of the company’s ATH-M30 closed-back dynamic stereo monitor headphones have been selected for use in the museum’s exhibits.
The 30,000-square-foot facility celebrated its grand opening with a slate of activities December 3-6, 2008, the culmination of The Recording Academy’s and GRAMMY Awards milestone 50th anniversary year.
The museum is located within L.A. LIVE, the downtown Los Angeles sports, entertainment and residential district, and across the street from the STAPLES Center, the venue where the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast will take place on February 9, 2009.
“We are thrilled to be working with Audio-Technica,” said Robert Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum. “The ATH-M30 Headphones will allow visitors to The GRAMMY Museum to experience our exhibits in a richer and more exciting way.”
The GRAMMY Museum has been established to explore and celebrate the enduring legacies of all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording process and the history of the premier recognition of excellence in recorded music – the GRAMMY Award.
The museum features interactive, permanent and traveling exhibits, with four floors of dynamic and engaging multimedia presentations. The majority of the exhibits in the self-guided museum tour involve a meticulously chosen soundtrack.
