Founded with the purpose of changing lives through the power of music, LSTN headphone are the perfect mix of profitable business, sleek design and philanthropic goodness.
Featured in Forbes 30 under 30, co-founder, Bridget Hilton is the female entrepreneur to follow if you are looking to build a business that gives back. After spending over 8 years at Universal Music Group the young entrepreneur launched LSTN out of her Hollywood apartment with just a $10k loan from a friend and grew it to a multimillion dollar a year company.
After watching a video online where a woman her age was able to hear for the first time, Bridget realized how different her life would have been without ever hearing music. With over 360 million people with disabling hearing loss, most of whom are in developing countries and can be helped with just hearing aids, Bridget decided to do something to help. Today, after just two years, over 20,000 people have been provided with hearing aids through LSTN’s partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in countries including the USA, Peru, Uganda, Kenya, China, and Sri Lanka.
