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 ]

Employee Spotlight – David Lyashchina

david_lyashchina_01For this month’s spotlight, we spoke to another vital technician here at 64 Audio. David Lyashchina is an experienced individual in the 64 Audio lab, having filled many different positions in his two years of employment. Prior to becoming part of the 64 Audio family, David was working in a retirement center. He was welcomed to the 64 team through his connections with the founder and his family. David has known the Belonozhko brothers since they were all kids – they all grew up together in the same community. One day, “Out of the blue,” David said, “Bogdan [our current CEO] texted me and said, ‘Hey, come in for an interview.” Shortly thereafter, David was hired as a technician in the lab. Back then, the… [ Read the full article ]

For the Love of 64 Audio: Skeptic to Supporter

Luckily for the rest of us, the news of especially happy customers spreads throughout the team so that we all get to enjoy the positive feedback. Today, we wanted to share some of that feedback with you.

Employee Spotlight: Laurin Maurer

3Laurin_MaurerThis next Employee Spotlight is a very special one, in that we have the pleasure of introducing the voice behind the previous spotlight articles — Laurin Maurer.  Laurin is a recent high school graduate and at just 18 years of age, has been an incredibly impactful employee here at 64 Audio. She has worked here for about a year and a half now and got her start at the company through a previous job at a popular fast food chain.  Before 64 Audio moved to Vancouver, WA, we were located in North Portland, OR, directly across from the fast food restaurant that Laurin was working at at the time. At our 10am break time, like clockwork, a group of guys from 64 Audio (then 1964… [ Read the full article ]

Employee Spotlight: Josiah Clanton

SiahHeader copyOur last Employee Spotlight brought to light Alexey Polyakov, a customer service representative that has been with us since the beginning, interfacing with customers daily on behalf of 64 Audio. This month, we want to showcase the man who manages 64 Audio’s visual world; introducing Josiah Clanton, 64 Audio’s own graphic designer. Our NAMM booth, our website, our social media posts, our t-shirts, every print out, pamphlet and product packaging – they’re all Josiah Clanton’s designs. “Most things that you see that represent the company visually, minus video, is typically my doing,” is what Josiah told us. Before coming to work for 64 Audio, Josiah went to college for graphic design and then did freelance work for about 6 years. “I’ve worked with a lot of different companies and different… [ 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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Alex Polyakov

Aleksey_BannerPreviously, we wrote about Alex Belonozhko, a lab technician who has been on the cutting edge of our A-Series and U-Series product lines. Today, we are proud to introduce Alex Polyakov, the employee that has been with 64 Audio since the very beginning.  Our founder, Vitaly Belonozhko, received a lot of support from his family in the earliest stages of 64 Audio’s development, but Alex was the very first full-time employee that he brought on at 1964 Ears (now 64 Audio). “I was the first full time employee after Vitaly…He needed somebody for the all of the office stuff so that he could focus on the lab… so I handled everything that wasn’t production – artists, accounting, order processing. This was actually right after they… [ 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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Alex Belonozhko

Alex_Blog_1Ready for another inspiring young go-getter from the 64 Audio lab? Alex Belonozhko is another 19 year-old who has shown us his proclivity for fast learning. He has played a vital role at 64 Audio, often leading the way in the lab at the introduction of new products. Alex was just 16 years old when he was introduced to 64 Audio, (then 1964 Ears). He first heard about the company from his family, which is no surprise, seeing as Vitaly Belonozhko (64 Audio’s founder) is his older brother. When he visited the lab one Saturday, it definitely caught his attention.   “I saw what Vitaly was doing, which was assembly… and I pretty much told him that I wanted to do that job…He had so… [ Read the full article ]

Michael Brauer Uses 64 Audio A12’s for Critical Listening (VIDEO)

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. I don’t use the 64 Audio in-ears to replace… [ Read the full article ]

Employee Spotlight: Ella Ladunska

EllaSo far, we have showcased a couple of our most valuable veterans in our lab. This time, we’re going to shed some light on one of the newer additions to the 64 Audio family. Ella Ladunska, one of our youngest lab technicians, has been working with us for about six months. Even in that short time, this 19 year-old has rapidly acquired a wide range of skills, becoming an integral technician in our Universal Lab.   Ella heard of an open position at 64 Audio from her sister, who was hired a few months before her. She had no prior experience with hearing equipment, electronics, or assembly – Before 64 Audio, she worked for a popular fast food chain. All of her training was received… [ Read the full article ]

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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Dave Chenk

Employee Spotlight - Dave  We hope that you enjoyed our last Employee Spotlight, which featured our beloved Dan Erickson. This time, we’re going to shine some light on one of the most unique and expressive members of the 64 Audio lab team – Dave Chenk. Dave Chenk has worked for 64 Audio for almost three years. According to him, that technically makes him “an old man at 64.”  Dave was one of 64’s first impression technicians, responsible for trimming raw impressions of customers’ ears into the signature shape of a finished 64 Audio IEM. Now, instead of working with the physical impressions, Dave uses a computer program to transform 3-D scanned impressions into digital 3-D IEM shells. The program that Dave uses is one that our technicians learned to… [ Read the full article ]

Employee Spotlight: Dan Erickson

Dan Erickson  Dan Erickson has been a part of the 64 Audio family for almost two years now. Prior to coming to work for 64 Audio, he was repairing hearing aids for an audiologist. Not only did he arrive with a strong familiarity with repairs, but he boasts nearly 30 years of experience in the hearing industry. A couple of years ago, when Dan first came on board, every shell was poured by hand instead of printed with 3D technology. Dan was the technician who surfaced and drilled each empty IEM shell. He still does that for IEMs from previous generations that have been returned due to damage. Dan also inspects each newly printed shell as an early-action quality control before the shells are filled with… [ Read the full article ]

64 Audio – Employee Spotlight

EmployeeSpotlight64 Audio started with the discovery of a need for a higher quality personal audio solution for musicians, sound engineers, and audiophiles alike. The company was founded by Vitaliy Belonozhko, the second oldest of twelve, in 2010. What makes this company so uniquely different from any other IEM company is the artistic sound sculpting vision. Touring with the family band throughout the first decade of this century really gave Vitaliy a keen ear for what musicians need on stage. This vision lead the way to great success for his company. Vitaliy’s innovating enterprise is still both owned and operated by the Belonozhko family. 64 Audio represents more than just the Belonozhkos, though – we are a family of our own. We celebrate individual achievements as… [ Read the full article ]
