Gabriel, Philippe and Yan, the three co-founders of Sounds Good, met at a summer course on entrepreneurship and quickly bonded. In their course project, they had the idea to create a platform to challenge companies on their environmental responsibilities, a project they continued to work on after the course was over. The platform never saw the light of day due to the enormous amount of resources required, but they continued working together by blogging about sustainable development.
Yan had been working on a wooden belt prototype for a few years, and they wanted to find a way to finance the project so that it could continue to be developed. That’s when Phil suggested selling wireless earbuds at the flea market on weekends. Within a few months, the success of Sounds Good became evident and an online store was launched to expand sales throughout Quebec.
We are gaining momentum
Thanks to Sounds Good's growth, they were able to bring a second company into the world: Lasclay. A line of 100% Canadian-made outdoor accessories, insulated with milkweed, a plant native to Quebec that produces a fiber that is warmer, more waterproof and more environmentally friendly than any other insulation.
Today, Gabriel leads the Lasclay project and ensures its growth while Yan and Phil continue the Sounds Good adventure.

Fall 2022 marks the official launch of the project Aubier, the first magnetic belts without buckles, made from recycled cork-rubber and cactus leather.
After several years of development, the founders of Sounds Good, Lasclay and now Aubier are proud to introduce this Canadian innovation, a belt that is comfortable, simpler, and more practical than traditional buckle belts.
Designed and made in Canada, Aubier belts are unique and carefully crafted.
From its inception, Sounds Good has been driven by the same values. Being curious by nature, we're constantly looking for new products to develop, while keeping our customers' satisfaction in mind.
