Logitech has announced its plan to acquire Blue Microphones. Blue joins Logitech’s multi-brand portfolio, including Logitech, Logitech G, Ultimate Ears, Jaybird, and ASTRO Gaming.
Blue says the acquisition will not impact its commitment to the professional audio market, and says it currently has new products for the pro market in development.
“With Logitech’s vast resources and incredible reach, Blue will be on a much bigger stage from the beginning. The end result is fulfilling our ultimate purpose – helping as many of our users find and amplify their voice as we can," says Blue CEO John Maier.
“Logitech’s acquisition of Blue Microphones will accelerate our entry into a growing market, and offers another way for us to help bring people’s passions (from music to blogging) to life," adds Logitech CEO Bracken Darrell. "Joining with Blue is an adjacent opportunity for us – a new way to grow – with additional synergies related to our existing gaming, PC webcam, and audio categories. It’s exciting!”
Blue has confirmed to Professional Sound that the acquisition will not impact its Canadian distribution arrangement with HHB Canada.
