Narration/Announcement Audio Production Service Advanced Plan


Advanced Service

A flexible studio recording plan tailored to your needs.

Narration/Announcement Production provided by i-Pairs is a studio recording service collaborated by experienced voice actors/narrators and specialized directors.

Our narration recordings are not home recordings by narrators themselves; rather are handled by a professional team, including directors and engineers, from pre-checks, intonation confirmation of the script to recordings at studio. Additionally, after recording, we deliver the final product in the desired format using our proprietary noise reduction technology via in-house AI.

This service includes not only audio recording but also adding and editing original BGM and sound effects. All processes are handled by professionals, providing high-quality narration audio at a reasonable price. We also support various foreign languages, such as English and Chinese.

We have served numerous companies, producing audio across various genres, and are absolutely confident in the quality of our deliverables. We would be grateful if you could request a quote using the button below.
