As Bridget wished, a part of the headphone sales of the company go towards helping people with hearing disabilities all over the world.

It aims at providing you with a great place to work by showing you interactive information along with photos and videos of a particular company. You can decide whether or not you are a good fit and apply accordingly. FirmPlay was launched in July last year and has since revolutionized the idea of job searching.
