About Colors Audio

Colors Audio is an audio production company based in Akron, Ohio whose work is heard everywhere! Since 1989 we’ve helped clients with crisp copywriting, flexible voice over talent and skilled audio production services. Recently we’ve added voice over training to the mix.

Our audio production services include creating and producing radio spots, soundtracks for TV commercials, phone messages, corporate communications of all kinds, and sound for eLearning and web videos.

How do we do it? With some of the world’s best recording equipment, a quiet and accurate acoustical space, and decades of experience - all here to serve your message.

There’s no magical software plugin or “secret trick” to shaping a great audio track. It’s many little things. Every step in the process is important. Colors is an audio production company that gets that. And our clients may appreciate our attention to detail more than any item on our rate sheet.

Film legend George Lucas said that “sound is half the experience.” We think he understated it. Whether your pictures live on a screen or in a listener’s imagination, the best, most cost-effective way to enhance those visuals is with powerful audio.

That’s what we’re about.
