Velodyne is the name of two Silicon Valley-based technology companies focused on audio equipment (Velodyne Acoustics) and marine solutions (Velodyne Marine). Velodyne spun off Velodyne LiDAR as a separate company in 2016.
David Hall founded Velodyne in 1983 as an audio company specializing in low-frequency sound and subwoofer technology. In 2012, Velodyne added a line of headphones to their product line, starting with the release of the vPulse in-ear headphones. Velodyne currently offers a number of audio products ranging from subwoofers to headphones.
Velodyne Acoustics, Inc. has been the industry leader in subwoofer performance for three decades. It's no surprise that Velodyne resides in Silicon Valley, known worldwide as the breeding ground for high-tech innovation and invention. Velodyne subwoofers and audio products represent the fusion of technical innovation with the art of beautiful industrial design.
