About Us

A father and son with a passion for quality in sound.

We Know Audio.

No stranger to the industry, Mike DePaola has owned and operated The Home Theater Group in Green Brook, NJ since 1995. For Michael, owning a custom Audio/Visual company was inevitable. He grew up with his father installing home made in-wall speakers before anyone knew what they were. He would dedicate most of his time and efforts to high end audio and concerts. While still a college student he would help friends and relatives choose quality audio systems. Two short years after graduating Seton Hall University with a degree in Accounting he started The Home Theater Shop. Throughout the years he has developed an in-depth knowledge of audio and visual electronics and how people use them. He believes in developing lasting relationships with customers by designing home Audio/Video systems that are functional and intuitive to use. To this day, Michael is still enjoying making customers dreams a reality, treating each job individually, with the utmost concern to detail.

Earhogz is the result of instilling a passion within Mike's son, Nick DePaola. Much like his father, Nick also grew up being exposed to unique high-end audio experiences, having a father who owned an Audio/Visual company. Nick is a professional graphic designer and marketer, studying digital marketing at Johnson & Wales University. Combining this skillset with experience, he and his father used the foundation HTG has built over the last three decades to break out into the ever-expanding E-Commerce sector. Earhogz is not just an audio equipment supplier, but a passion project between father and son, and a platform to share with those who appreciate quality sound as much as they do.
