Looking for a top sound effect service in New York City?

As you decide whether to invest in a sound effects company, subscribe to a sound effects library, or use the free sound effects available online, consider your project and its goals. A sound effects company is best for larger-scale projects where you want the final product to stand out. Sound effects studios create custom sound effects, tailored to your video or movie. Sound effects libraries offer a variety of pre-made sound effects and are best for projects on a budget. Similarly, you can find free sound effects online, but other projects may use them, making them less original.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top sound effect companies in New York City. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs. If you need more support, tell us about your project, and we'll match you with recommended companies.
