About Clear Audio Systems

Clear Audio was established in 1993 by company Chairman Tom McGregor when he identified a need for speech enhancement equipment when visiting a branch of his local bank.   This started a 25-year journey, along with fellow company director Martin McCloskey, in the development of speech enhancement equipment.
This involved commissioning St Andrews University working in the development of the speech enhancement equipment, which was originally known as CLAUDE – Clear Audio Equipment, or as it is now known – Clear Audio.
From there, Tom approached an engineering company, Marconi Civil Products in Dalgety Bay to manufacture the electronics required for the system.  This was where he met Martin, who was paramount in building the systems and from there the company has never looked back.
The Clear Audio team have been at the forefront of speech enhancement systems and induction loop expertise from the development of the initial technology 25 years ago, to the systems you see in your banks and shops today.
Our products are designed and built in the UK.    With our 25 years’ experience in the speech enhancement systems, we consider ourselves to be the market leader in the technology.   We are customer driven, finding solutions for businesses who wish to make their customer experience for the hearing impaired as good as it possibly can be.
