RECORDING WEEK 2022: EVE Audio was founded in May 2011 in Berlin, Germany and is an owner-operated manufacturer for professional studio monitors. The company was founded and is owned by Roland Stenz, a long time passionate for quality audio and with a vast background history in the audio industry.
EVE Audio’s approach is to question the necessity of each and every component in the audio circuitry, not only from an engineering point of view, but also from a user experience standpoint.
The result is a complete product range of active studio monitors and subwoofers, full of innovations intended to contribute flatter, clearer monitoring to the engineer's setup and carefully designed to satisfy home recording users as well as studio professionals.
Air Motion Transformer
A trademark all EVE Audio studio monitors have in common is the further developed technology of an Air Motion Transformer that is different from any other similar products available on market: wider front slots for less sound coloration, a re-designed construction for a more precise making of these tweeters and a new diaphragm material for lowest distortion level sets them apart.
A DSP based filter section, rear-facing bass-reflex channels, the SMART-knob which is a single front push knob operation that allows access to all filter settings and volume, and glass fibre honeycomb woofers complete the products.
A common feature of all EVE Audio products is the certainty of consistency that is an important consideration when investing in a studio.
Within a remarkable short period of time the company has gone from an insider tip to manufacturing a complete line of professional monitors that is sold through partners in more than 60 countries. The wide range of active studio monitors suits different rooms, different needs, different tastes, and different budgets.

From Berlin’s ‘Media City’ to your studio
