Olive was founded in 2005 by Dr. Oliver Bergmann and Robert Altmann, who are not only passionate about technology but also about music. They were immediately excited by how new devices promised thousands of songs in your pocket, delivering more access to music than ever before, as well as a better way to organize and search for the music people wanted to hear.
However, being music lovers, they were frustrated by the fact that compressed digital files seriously affect the quality of sound, creating a dramatic compromise. Both founders feel that technology should be able to improve the experience that people have with music - and ultimately, they decided to do something about it. As a result they started Olive Media Products and have built digital music products for the rest of us.
