It all began in 1988 in Cleveland, Ohio, offering audio reinforcement for bands and night clubs. Soon, we were touring regionally with award winning artists. In 1998, we opened an A/V studio and accrued a long list of independent musical artists who have recorded and released material recorded at our facilities. Then we took those recording services to the road and began recording live performances. In many cases we now offer 32-track live recording included free as part of our live production packages. Our attention to detail has caught the attention of both local and regional promoters alike, allowing us to enter a larger market for Special Events and Festivals, where we quickly gained recognition for our superior equipment and performance. 3rd Ear has continued to grow, adapting to new markets including permanent installations. 

In 2011, we opened a new office in Troy, Michigan, allowing us to better serve the Southern Michigan and Northern Indiana regions.

In 2018 we moved from Troy, Michigan to a larger location in Fraser, Michigan.

3rd Ear is committed to partnering with our customers by providing guaranteed on time services, integrated coordination of audio, lighting, staging and total satisfaction regardless of the size or scope of the opportunity presented.

3rd Ear Productions is a member of the prestigious Audio Engineering Society and our work has been featured in industry trade magazines such as Pro Sound NewsFront of House and Mix.
