History and products
It was founded as Andrea Radio Corporation in 1934[where?] by Frank A. D. Andrea Sr.
In the 1960s, the company designed the capsule's intercom communication system used in the first manned Mercury space flight and military intercoms for F16 fighter jets and helicopters.
In 1998, the company pioneered microphone array technology, which has become a standard for hands-free VoIP communication embedding its advanced noise-cancellation technology into millions of computers being produced by global manufacturers, including Dell and Hewlett-Packard.
In more recent years, it began manufacturing its own brand of headsets known as SuperBeam headsets. The company has created boom-free, all-purpose headsets essentially applying its microphone array technology to the headset industry as well as beam forming which is utilized to eliminate background noise.
After 75 years of predominantly working with NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense as well as doing OEM work for several companies, the company decided to create its own headset line. These headsets are multipurpose as they handle gaming, VoIP, music and recording. The headsets employ dual mics which allow for binaural recording.
