New ownership after 56 years


WiMo has carried high quality headphones and microphones from Heil for many years! Instead of new product news, today we have something new from the company.


Heil Sound, founded in 1966 in Fairview Heights, Illinois, welcomes a new ownership in 2022. The new owners of the professional microphone company, however, are no strangers. Founders Bob and Sarah Heil transferred ownership to current President and CEO Ash Levitt and Director of Operations Steve Warford. As announced on the website, Sarah Heil will retire, her husband however, will continue as Founder and CEO Emeritus for public relations and product design in the amateur radio sector.


Levitt and Warford have both been part of the Heilsound company since they were teenagers.


In an interview on the Heil sound site, Levitt said: "Steve and I are honored to carry on the legacy of Heil Sound. We care very deeply about Heil Sound’s role in the industry and intend to build on that going forward with new products and greater distribution. An important part of that role that we pride ourselves on is the connection we have with professionals and end-users. As a musician and former broadcaster, I have spent a lot of time on stages and in studios in front of a microphone and understand our users’ needs. I and everyone at Heil Sound share a passion for what we do because it helps others achieve their creative endeavors."


WiMo is excited to be working with Ash Lewitt and Steve Warford and look forward to more news from the world of headphones and microphones!
