FUN PRODUCTS ...

By sharing my experiences and providing links to the retailers and brands I am hoping to assist end users in their quests for finding the right products along with the right people for them to deal with.

One of my my goals is to educate and inform consumers on the various products and technologies out there.  There are a lot of terrific audio and video products... hopefully this website will help you discover some of these products and some of the great stores where they can be  seen and heard!

Whether it's "ON THE ROAD AGAIN" to "TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME"..."LIFE is A HIGHWAY"...

Please follow me as I travel across Canada & the U.S. in search of some cool products sold by even cooler individuals!

A Word About My Job...

image218

What is a "Brand Ambassador" / sales representative?

  • It is my goal to bring dedicated and passionate representation to manufacturers, and resellers. 
  • A large part of my job is to educate and inform consumers and store employees on the various NEW products and technologies on the horizon.  This is where attending various trade shows is crucial in my opinion.
  • I do not sell directly to end users but I am available to assist potential buyers to guide them toward appropriate and dependable retailers.
  • One thing about me:  I don't pretend to be what I am not... My clients have grown to know me as someone who tries his best to assist them in their efforts.                           
  • Honesty and integrity are my best policies! 
  • I consider myself as an audiophile, which (to me) simply means that I can tell objectively what the difference is between a good and a great sounding system.  That being said, I also believe that the way we perceive audio is subjective and what one person likes may not be what another agrees with!  (in other words; Everyone's Ears Are Different!)
  • In my past lives, I was an home automation expert, a multi-room audio designer and  a Home Theatre designer; I worked & managed retail stores in Montreal and Toronto, and even owned and operated my own custom design company for a while.  

Testimonial

"Jerome is one of the few representative in our industry who is client oriented, technical oriented and sales driven at the same time...He always wants to know more.  

He will pitch into jobs at any time and with a huge smile on his face. "

What's coming up?

  • Dealer Events:  Some of the stores I do business with have special sales which I would like to encourage people to attend.  I will post these events on the "Upcoming Events" section.
  • Trade Shows;  all year long, the Audio community holds various trade shows around the world.  I do my best to attend as many of these shows in Canada and in the U.S. as possible because I find that it is important for me to keep in touch with what is new and trending in the Audio Industry...  
  • Please visit my "UpComing Events for One Good Ear" section for more information 

Getting ready for the Grand opening of 33 1/3 Record Store at their NEW location!  http://www.3313recordstore.com/

350 Harry Walker Parkway N. Unit 9,Newmarket ON, L3Y 8L3



What's NEW?

The industry, like so many  others, is in perpetual movement and new products and technologies are always on the horizon.   I still remember when the revolutionary Sony Walkman came out, followed by VHS & Betamax VCR's, CD players, Laser Disc players...and so on...

Today's audio landscape is one of streaming technology.  

We are definitely living in a Digital World!

That said, there has been a resurgence of turntables and vinyl (records or LP's) which has been very interesting to watch.  

Analog vs. Digital... 

Thankfully, One Good Ear represents BOTH!  

Letโ€™s take another short Musical Coffee Break...
