We're not just here to make speakers. We're here to make listening easy.

At Dio, we’re excited about the power of audio. With audio, you can connect to the world without ever having to spare your eyes, your attention, or even your time. You can listen in the shower, listen while driving, listen alongside chores…really, you can listen anywhere, at any time, and with anyone. And at Dio, we’ve finally made it simple to unlock the full power of audio by giving you the ability to listen in one place or many, through one speaker or many, all in an affordable and easy way.

  • Mission

    Our mission is to make it easy to listen, which is why our products are affordable, simple, and empowering. Dio started from the idea that even the simplest speakers should be able to connect together wirelessly. With our products, you can tailor your listening experience to your personal routine, your household, and your favorite content.

  • Vision

    Audio anywhere you need it. Most current speaker solutions assume you’re listening in only one place, but we want to offer a better way to listen. We’re working toward a future where a speaker stops being the single focal point for all of your audio playback and instead becomes one of many access points in your life to the content you love.

  • Humans at the Center

    We started Dio to put humans, not technology, at the center of the listening experience. Everything we build starts with the human experience first.

  • Here to Listen

    Our DNA revolves around listening - to one another and to our customers. Our support inbox is often manned by our CEO himself and we're constantly launching product updates based on feedback from our customers.

  • Build Out Loud

    The concept of our entire company revolves around our community. From concept to crowdfunding, we've been building Dio in public to make sure our products & policies are driven by our community.

  • Focus on Simplicity

    There's a reason why we're interoperable with over 100 other speaker brands, and why our logo isn't plastered on the front of our devices. To us, simplicity is what creates a perfect experience.

  • Happy Jamming

    We end every email, blog, and post with "Happy Jamming!" because, at the end of the day, a good audio experience is simply one that puts a smile on your face. =)

Meet the Founder

Akarsh Vinod

Founder, CEO

Hi, I'm Akarsh: drummer, board game enthusiast, and the world's biggest Lord of the Rings fan! As a musician and an avid podcast and audiobook listener, I've always loved all things audio. So when I realized there wasn't an easy way to listen to my favorite things all over the home, I knew I had to create the perfect solution. With years of experience in product development, manufacturing, and supply chain in the consumer electronics and automotive industries, I decided to apply my skillset to create the world's easiest to use, most affordable, and most robust multi-room speaker: the Dio Node.
