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.

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 ]

The Beginning of Real Wood Faceplates

Wood_FEATURED_02Five years ago, 64 Audio was in its first stages of development, still taking orders in paper form, and employing only a handful of people, mostly friends and relatives of the company’s founder Vitaliy Belonozhko. A lot has changed since then, and there has been a lot of innovation here. One of the things that has changed is the appearance of our products, notably the faceplate options that we have offered. We just recently introduced some brand new options – gold, rose gold, and glow in the dark.  What about one of the old classics, though? Here is the story of how one of our vintage faceplates (real wood) came to be offered on our earphones:   This idea first came from Roman Belonozhko, who… [ 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.

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 ]
