    Don't forget ALO Audio, Campfire's sister company.

    I just read a 2016 review from Steve Guttenberg "The Audiophiliac" of CNET and Stereophile about the KOSS ESP-950 electrostatic headphone and its companion E-90 amplifier. He mentioned that this particular model is manufactured in Milwaukee. It makes sense that their TOTL headphone is made here in the US.

    Etymotic does the same thing with their TOTL ER4 model which is Made in the USA. Their similar ER3 model is made in China though.

    Another American company that manufactures their earphones in the USA is Periodic Audio. They explicitly have an Assembled in the USA badge under each model's description when you visit their website.

    So yeah, perhaps add KOSS and Periodic Audio to your list?

    conrad-johnson is a US company. I'm pretty sure they hand-make their gear in Fairfax, Virginia. Could be wrong on some part of the build process, but I'm pretty sure I am right on that.

    Mark Levinson is a US subsidiary of harman. Krell is based in Orange, CT. I do not know what proportion of these high-end producers' products are US-designed, -assembled, or -built.

    Alclair is another USA based company. I think their IEMs are made in Minnesota.

    Anyone know which of the US ciem manufacturers actually build their pieces stateside? 64, JHA, Sensaphonics?

    With the current trade situation I feel like that info is key to even remotely predictable pricing and turnaround time.

    Also there may be variation across models.

    In general, Im a huge fan of global supply and manufacturing, but in the current age of political irrationality, things we never used to have to think about are becoming relevant, and not just for audio.

    A year ago, made in China = affordable, reliable, fast, and (in most cases) state-of-the-art. Now, that equation has changed
