Helping brands harness the power of sound

Leading brands like eBay, Amazon, Shell and DHL, and their sonic branding agencies, ask us to help them create powerful emotional connections with their consumers and business customers.

They do this because they recognise the critical importance of creating brand sounds that trigger the right emotional response.

They choose us because only we have quantitatively mapped the emotional impact of music on consumer emotions and behaviour.

Does your sonic brand match your brand DNA?

As the global experts, powered by our panel of over 3.5 million people, we can provide the answer.

We are the world leaders in helping organisations match brand personality and attributes to music, and marketing teams select music that not only triggers the right consumer response to a campaign, but also stays true to your brand identity.

SoundOut has created a proprietary solution for sonic testing that delivers deep consumer insights. That’s because we have indexed and mapped how music impacts human emotions via a ground-breaking data science project involving over 500,000 people, 200 emotions, hundreds of music tracks, over 5,000,000 data points and a university that leads the world in the psychology of music.


In the same way that DNA mapping identifies which gene or combination of genes are directly responsible for physical attributes or malfunctions, we’ve mapped the relationship between any music composition and the implicit response it triggers on over 200 human emotions.

The power of this unique datamap underpins our SoundScape solution suite. SoundScape makes your brand the benchmark and increases the certainty and speed of ROI from sonic brand assets.

Our unique panel of 3.5 million consumers helps remove any subjectivity and risk from your sound and music choices by testing both the implicit and explicit emotional impact on consumers.

By mapping and indexing the impact music has on human emotions, we help brands, and their branding agencies, define, match, test and sustain world-class sonic brands. Our brand DNA analysis helps create sonic brands that trigger the right reactions from consumers and customers.

This de-risks the entire sonic branding project by ensuring it stays true to the core brand using the brand as the benchmark for success.

We ensure that your sonic choices support the core brand personality – that there is a viable match with your brand – as defined by you.
