Employee Spotlight – David Lyashchina

For 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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Laurin Maurer

This 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: Alex Polyakov

Previously, 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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Alex Belonozhko

Ready 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 ]

Employee Spotlight: Dave Chenk

  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 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

64 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 ]
