Califone International History

Califone® International, Inc. has been a leader since 1947 in the design, development and manufacturing of audio/visual and supplemental curriculum products for use in education and presentation settings. Simply stated, Califone is your powerful sound presentation solutions provider!

Our product lines include DVD/CD/cassette players; cassette recorders; stereo, monaural and cordless headphones; wired and wireless public address systems; listening centers; record players; computer lab peripherals and other communications wares. All products are manufactured to exacting Califone specifications, features, and benefits, and distributed from our San Fernando, California facility through a network of valued authorized dealerships. We also support seven authorized service/warranty and repair centers located throughout the United States and Canada.

Since its inception in 1946 as the educational products division of Robert Metzner’s Roberts Electronics – which manufactured state-of-the-art consumer audio components and, was the first U.S. company to offer a reel-to-reel tape recorder and solid state radio tuners to the general public – Califone has been on the leading edge of technology for educational applications. Over the years, Califone has received many engineering design patents for product innovations.

Today, we continue this distinguished tradition with product development in the digital audio-visual, computer multimedia and public address arenas. Califone always strives for higher standards and better suitability for our specific customer needs, offering valuable product features not available from other manufacturers.

Califone serves literally millions of educators and children in the Pre-K through higher education school environments, and has expanded our product lines to include houses of worship, parks and recreation, business and industry and many other presentation markets.

The team members from Califone are dedicated to providing our customers with excellent price/value products and personalized customer service. Welcome to our web site and enjoy the use of our products!
