Apogee Electronics received a unique certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the U.S. This is testament to founder and CEO Betty Bennett’s ongoing commitment to creating and developing cutting edge and top-of-the-market premium audio products. Apogee made its name designing filters that solved many of the initial problems associated with digital audio. The company became an innovator in making studio quality recording available to users at all levels, from multi-channel installation in a commercial facility to personal audio interface in a home environment. Today, its converters and audio interfaces are regarded as the reference standard in the industry, as evidenced by their use on recordings by Lady Gaga, Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift,

Jay-Z, The Chainsmokers, Foo Fighters, BeyoncО, Alabama Shakes, Ryan Tedder and many others.

Roger Robindore, Director of Product Evangelism: “Apogee was there at the dawn of digital audio. There were a lot of issues with the early gear, and our products were there to solve them. Everything we do is geared around pushing the boundaries of digital audio, art and science —so we are constantly emerging with new technologies that push the boundaries of what consumers can do in the digital recording realm.”
