The history of Elipson is inextricably linked to its managing director, Joseph Léon. Born in Bordeaux, he studied at the Arts et Métiers school and was passionate about sound. In 1930 he took part in the assembly and development of sound systems used in cinemas, and at the same time he and his brother were working on a portable recording device, the Monobloc VV3. Joseph subsequently joined Multimoteur (a small company specialising in the development of motors for electronic toys), which subsequently became Elipson.
The Elipson name arose from the contraction of the French words ellipse and son (i.e. sound), and their unique spherical speakers quickly made a name for themselves while developing a strong visual identity. With their bold design, the speakers conceived by Joseph Léon were often used in studios and featured on television, and so made their way into the daily lives of the French population.
