Founded in Providence, Rhode Island by Albert C. Allen, AVID is named for the acronym Audio Visual Instructional Device and begins developing audio products for home and commercial use with a focus on the airline industry.
Only ten years later, AVID collaborates with TWA to develop the first of its kind in-flight pneumatic headphone. Soon after, AVID begins producing in-flight entertainment headphones for 97% of the world's airlines.
The expanding AVID team gains recognition for dependability and value by continuously developing innovative audio products and accessories. Most notably, two-way audiophile speakers and H/88 headphones.
As audio technology becomes part of daily practice in personal and professional environments, AVID flourishes rapidly in the education, healthcare and fitness markets, as well as in the travel industry.
