A group of engineers left the famouse Ganz company and together with another businessmen founded Eufon Rt. on 18th March 1907. Company was an owner of no-horn gramophone patent (horn was included/twisted in the box of gramophone), what was a famouse and well-known product over the world. On 29th October 1911 company was bought, including prodcution and stocks, by Győrffy-Wolf Fémárugyár Rt. and Eufon Rt. itself since that time handled by patent selling activities and the production was continued at owner only.

Company had also an own music record production under trade mark Metafon and Olympia Records.
