Introducing the apex™ & tia™ Technologies

VANCOUVER, 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

We 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 ]

EP-Custom EarPlugs with apex™ technology

64 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 ]
