"Open Ear have been a brilliant music partner for Selfridges over the past two years. They provide an excellent hands on service, which is far superior to any of the companies we’ve worked with in the past.

Since working with Open Ear, we’ve experienced far better music curation, higher staff satisfaction and better customer feedback when it comes to music."

Bobby RossHead of Visual Merchandising, Selfridges

"We chose Open Ear based on their ability to understand both our growing business and the music brief given. I am pleased to say that on the performance of the music profile across the trial sites, we rolled out the Open Ear music service to all of our restaurants. Their music knowledge and account management has been a real support to the San Carlo Group."

Alessandro DiStefanoCo-Owner, San Carlo Group

"Music has been a great addition to our office spaces. Members have found an improved working environment, with better privacy and increased concentration levels."

Olly OlsenJoint-Founder and CEO, TOG

"Music is a key part of our brand and Open Ear are crucial to delivering music across key touchpoints. We work very closely with them, and this gets us the best results. We would have employed more DJs but working with Open Ear means we don’t have to."

Paola FereginoMarketing Manager, Wahaca

"Open Ear’s software is a breeze to use, with the Manager app giving us as much or as little control as we could want, and the Energy Slider is a really elegant way of reacting to the atmosphere in the room on-the-fly."

Sean Fennelly Head of Bars, Kimpton London

"Love the new post-lockdown playlists! We’ve been dancing around all day at East. Just what we needed."

“The Open Ear team have been great from day one implementing a fantastic selection of playlists to elevate our brand throughout the hotel.

It is fun to watch guests’ reactions as they hear the different playlists at the hotel and makes you realise how key it is to get the music choice right, which Open Ear sure have for us!”
