We don’t arrive at your inbox too often, and it’s only on rare occasions that you’ll hear from HandheldSound more than once every month or so.

You can opt out at any time!

We also provide a way for you to join our mailing list whether you have licenses or not by completing our mailing list online form. Please note that we only ask your email address and name.
