ExXothermic has several patents for its Wi-Fi streaming technology and has delivered thousands of Wi-Fi audio channels for use in assistive listening, fitness centers, waiting areas, hospitality and other applications.
Listen Technologies and ExXothermic, Inc. have worked together in partnership for more than two years.

This acquisition augments Listen Technologies’ expertise in Wi-Fi audio and deepens its technology core competence. It also helps Listen Technologies meet the needs of customers and end users eager to use their smartphones as listening devices.
