Dear Friends, Fans and Customers,
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown all our lives, our businesses, and for some of us, our very livelihoods into meltdown. It feels like every dystopian sci-fi thriller I’ve watched is coming true in real life.
Everyone I know is locked up at home wondering when this crisis is going to let them step out, meet their loved ones, get back to work, and get their lives finally back on track.
Some of you have lost your jobs. Some of you are on indefinite leave trying your best not to lose your mind. And some of you, like our team, are working from home and counting the days as they pass by through a blur of Zoom meetings, conference calls, Netflix, and not to forget, listening to music.
We’re all in this together while the world is on pause. Hang in there.
But guess what? We need to unpause. We need to keep the music playing. It won’t be too long before things start rocking again.
The first week of the outbreak, I was still in shock. I quite literally couldn't comprehend what was going to happen. But it was a wake up call. It took a while, but then I pulled myself together, and got to work along with the rest of our team. I’m personally feeling more committed and responsible towards you, our incredibly supportive customers as well as the audiophile community we’ve built together over the years.
I want to write to you to share with you a little bit about how Headphone Zone is coping with these difficult circumstances, and how, you, our community members, fans and customers can help us through this.
How has COVID-19 affected Headphone Zone?
We couldn’t have ever planned for this situation in our wildest dreams and we’re still coming to terms with the implications of COVID-19 at Headphone Zone.
Yeah. It’s all pretty shit right now. But the important thing is, we’re OK.

How can you help Headphone Zone?
#PreBuyLocal: As always, we need your help and support while we try and keep our business afloat. We’re a small team, but we’re driven by passion for what we do. I can confidently say, when it comes to audio gear, our small business is one of the most sustainable and impactful choices you can make as we're 100% owned, funded and run by proud Indians, and we’re here to stay.
To stay updated with what’s happening at Headphone Zone, please follow us on Instagram. We’ll try our best to keep you updated with how the team is coping.
Stay safe. Stay indoors. Wash your hands. If there's one thing I've realized right now, it is that we need to first stay alive and stay well enough for us to use Headphones and for everything else to matter.
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to the feelin'
