Correcting the Record

apex moduleDear valued 64 Audio™ customers, It has recently come to our attention that our previous business partner, Asius Technologies, LLC has been publicizing misinformation about our company and products. While it is our preference to focus our time and attention on our products and our customers, we believe it is necessary to address some of the allegations that have been made. The relationship between 64 Audio and Asius was non-exclusive and ended because of different visions and styles of business operation. We broke no agreements during our relationship with Asius and even invited them to let us know of any specific concerns they had so that we could look into them. Asius came forward with no concerns as a result of that invitation.  It has… [ Read the full article ]

Regarding the end of 64 Audio’s partnership with ADEL

64_Blog_Banner2  Dear Customers, There have been a lot of questions about some recent changes at 64 Audio, namely the switch from ADEL to apex technology. Many of you are wondering why 64 Audio will no longer be selling ADEL modules with our products. I wanted to answer some of your questions and shed some light on the situation. ADEL technology was created, owned, and manufactured by a third party – Asius Technologies, LLC. 64 Audio partnered with Asius Technologies back in August, 2014, due to a shared vision. We felt that ADEL was a much-needed solution to the pneumatic pressure issues that conventional in-ear monitors created. Our partnership allowed us to offer our customers protection for their hearing, something that was and still is very… [ Read the full article ]

Introducing the apex™ & tia™ Technologies

Blog_apex_Banner1VANCOUVER, WA, July 28, 2016 – 64 Audio, a worldwide leader in in-ear monitors, has today unveiled two new breakthrough technologies. As a global industry leader in premier in-ear monitors, 64 Audio is proud to introduce apex™, a new and improved in-ear technology, and the tia™ – a first of its kind, tubeless in-ear audio system. 64 Audio’s apex stands for Air Pressure Exchange. It features a pneumatically interactive vent that relieves pneumatic pressure (also known as air pressure) caused by miniature speakers placed in a sealed ear canal. With the apex technology, these pressures are greatly reduced, the sound quality is improved, and the stereo image is much wider. Additionally, instrument separation is more distinguishable because the sound is delivered to the eardrum in a more natural way…. [ Read the full article ]

The Danger of Wearing Only One IEM

Dangers_Of_One_IEMWe all know that in-ear monitors (IEMS) were designed to solve two issues: Save hearing and improve audio quality on stage. But if used incorrectly they may actually fail to do both. It is far too often that we see musicians and performers with one earpiece dangling on their chest. While it works as a nice wardrobe accessory it is actually dangerous to your hearing health. We’ll try to explain. There is a known phenomenon call binaural summation. You don’t have to remember the words but rather understand the concept. When you take one earpiece out, you lose 6db of perceived loudness. To compensate, most musicians will turn the volume up by about 6db (twice the loudness), which can be fatiguing and damaging to the ear…. [ Read the full article ]

MichaelBrauer_HeaderRecently, 64 Audio’s founder, Vitaly Belonozhko had the pleasure of speaking with Michael Brauer, the Grammy Award-winning mixing engineer for The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Coldplay, John Mayer, Aretha Franklin and many more. Michael and his assistants have been using custom 64 Audio A12s and A10s for several months in Brauer’s studio space at Electric Lady Studios in New York. He has some great things to say about his experience with our flagship A12s.   “When comparing the A10’s to A12’s, I prefer listening to the A12s. I find the bottom and midrange exactly as I imagine my mix to sound. The A10s also have a beautiful sound – a real clear midrange. I imagine classical music sounding amazing on them.

EP-Custom EarPlugs with apex™ technology

Blog_EP-Custom_Banner264 Audio is proud to release the EP-Custom EarPlugs with apex technology ($199.00), the world’s most advanced custom earplugs, which offer more sophisticated hearing protection than any other plugs on the market. 64 Audio’s EP-Cs owe their effectiveness to the revolutionary apex technology and are manufactured using the same 3D FiT Technology that has drastically improved the precision of fit in our custom in-ear monitors.   Conventional hearing protection products present several disturbing problems. They hermetically seal the ear canal, which causes the occlusion effect and amplifies any sound by up to 60db. When the user speaks, chews, or even walks, any vibrations are transmitted directly to the eardrum through their cranium. With an open ear, pneumatic pressures created by vibrations in the body escape out of the… [ Read the full article ]

blog-1-500x250In-ear monitors are advertised to be far superior in clarity, transparency and fidelity when compared to most traditional floor monitors. This is true, if your sound engineer is experienced in mixing for in-ear monitors (IEMs), but what about those people that went out and bought the most expensive pair of custom molds and had the worst experience of their life during the first show? It turns out that, in most cases, they never had a proper soundcheck, assuming that everything would “magically” sound great because they have a set of top of the line custom in-ear monitors. Here are 3 guidelines that will help you achieve a better in-ear monitor experience. 1. Ambience/FX.  In order to have a heavenly experience with your IEMs you have to… [ Read the full article ]
