You should record here. Seriously. Sure, there are audiobook studios in New York, LA, Oregon, and Nashville...all cool places. But San Diego has something none of these can offer. Recently someone or another voted San Diego “America’s most pleasant place.”
We agree. San Diego has a casual, laid-back pace, and phenomenal weather just about year round. We have beautiful mountains, beaches, theme parks and resorts, and nice people (especially for California...we can’t compete with the mid-west or Canadians obviously).
Verity’s studios are located in Sunny San Marcos, CA. We have conveniently situated near wonderful, affordably priced hotels (as well as some incredible more expensive ones).
Because of our location authors come from all around the country to record with us. Here are a few testimonials to prove it!
Working with Verity Audio is a huge blessing. I’d never done an audiobook recording before so I was more than a little nervous. I’d heard it was hard and stressful. It was scary at first but the Verners calmed my nerves and brought peace to the atmosphere. The two days of recording became a sweet memory I will cherish for a long time. The space was comfortable, Crissy and Cory made sure I had everything I needed and gently coached me along the way. They made sure no sound got by, that I didn’t recognize. I loved the pace and the way they made sure the recording was excellent. I’ve since recommend that others use them and will continue to. Everyone I know who has used Verity Audio feels the way I do. The service, product, and attention to detail delivers a product that is professional and top notch. They are quick to respond and get shipments out quickly. They have great integrity and treat the book as if it were their own, that is hard to find. I seriously look forward to doing another book so I can spend time with them.
I had a great experience recording my first audiobook with Verity. Not knowing what I was getting into, they were patient with a first time author and coached me through the cadence needed to narrate an audiobook. They had great attention to detail to make sure my book was top quality. I was so pleased with the final product and would highly recommend Verity for your project.
I was super nervous about recording an audiobook in general, and especially because I had never met the Verner’s or seen Verity Audio studios. They came highly recommended but I was still apprehensive, and all that worrying was absolutely for nothing! From the moment I arrived, everyone was so caring and professional and truly had an interest in my book and the total successful outcome of the project. I cannot say enough about how amazing my family and I were treated, and the end result of the project was nothing short of phenomenal quality. I would highly recommend these people full of integrity and their awesome studio. You will not regret your decision.
Thank you so much to all the staff and friends and owners at Verity Audio. You've been kind to me, you've been patient with me and you've done excellent work! Thank you so much!
We have several incredible lodging opportunities near our studios.
What to do
Why not make a short vacation out of your audiobook recording process? San Diego offers a plethora of options for diversion and entertainment, including beautiful beaches, historic locations (just don’t forget we’re not that old!), to-die-for Mexican food, hiking, sailing, kayaking, theme parks, dinner cruises and, of course, the top beer scene in the country.
Some highlights in San Diego, a short list...
- Visit the somewhat touristy but always fun Old Town
- Brewery tours—hit one of the hundreds of breweries. Our personal favorite is the world-famous Stone. But other local brewers like Green Flash and Ballast Point will not disappoint!

- Visit America’s “cleanest downtown” and the “San Diego Gas Lamp District”
- Visit Temecula Wine Country
- Learn to surf
- Hike the famous Potato Chip Rock
- Follow in the footsteps of presidents and visit the historic Hotel Del Coronado.
