AC Gears is the premier tech and lifestyle store of New York City. Our catalog is consisted of the best premium brands and products curated comprehensively for the modern life.
Redefining "Quality" with Function and Design
We are a store that considers the "premium quality" of a product not by its price or on-going hype, but in considering the following two fundamental questions: first, how well is the product designed and more importantly, how well does it perform its intended functions. With these two key elements in mind, we set out to create a highly selective catalog consisted of iconic brands and innovative products that will help our customers to live and create better.
Welcome to the Physical World
Come to our store if you want to not just shop for convenience but enjoy a real shopping experience once again. And with product launch and meet-the-designer parties, we transform our store from time to time into an event space so that consumers can come together with the makers, learn and share information, and have a good time. Like us on Facebook to stay updated with events hapenning in New York City. In 2012 AC Gears has expanded into wholesale business distributing and representing exclusively world-class brands here in the US.

The acronym "AC" comes from AudioCubes (AudioCubes.com), Internet's premier etailer in providing hard-to-find Japanese electronics and gadgets to customers in the US and Europe. Audio Cubes Inc was established in 2002 by our founder Kohn while still a senior in college. The company has been selected by Inc Magazine in 2010 as one of America's fastest growing companies and
has appeared on Times, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Wired, among others.
AC Gears was established in late 2007 in New York City to provide our customers a different kind of hands-on shopping experience for new technological and lifestyle innovations. Initially selling primarily gadgets from Japan (with our motto of "Get Gadgets, Give Love"), AC Gears has now expanded its catalog emcompassing high quality tech as well as lifestyle products. Our store and its products have been recommended by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, Huffington Post, CNET, Engadget, Gizmodo, The Today Show, The Jay Leno Show, among many others. AC Gears' NYC store has been graced by many of our favorite movie stars, musicians, and artist patrons, as well as being used as a set for movie productions and TV shows.
