About the brand

Shindo Labs makes jewels for your ears and from there a straight shot to your heart. For 30 years Shindo Labs based in Japan, has hand designed and built devastatingly fine electronics. There is something more than electrical signal, right materials and math involved here. There is the “The music mind”. It takes something deep to be able to  create this much realism and beauty from audio gear; It takes passion, skill, an open mind and a life long quest for perfection.

Open the top cover of a Shindo you will find a hand wired point to point circuit with a meticulous layout. It features the best parts of yesterday and today including all NOS tubes from the 50’s and 60’s, oil capacitors, hand wired transformers etc.  What is the Shindo sound? Pure emotion, startling dynamics, high resolution, pitch black backgrounds with a complete naturalness and emotional feel which will keep you up all night listening to your favorite music. These components are carefully built one at a time, just like in the old days.

While the world moves toward mediocrity, it’s a relief to find a company like Shindo Labs.
