It was my pleasure to have Tom Trones on this episode of theOpenScore Conversation Podcast. He is the Co founder and Chief Product Officer of Minuendo - a company that is passionate in bringing category defining hearing protection products that users will truly enjoy wearing. In this podcast, you’ll learn about the importance of protecting your hearing as a musician, his pathway from guitarist to designing his ear plugs and what it was like to take a product from the idea stage all the way to selling a complete product during the pandemic.

Pssst!……Although this video is not directly sponsored by Minuendo themselves, I have a discount code for 20% of the Lossless ear plugs from their distributor - Soundbrenner.

Happy Listening!
