64 Audio launches reveals Aspire 4 universal in-ear monitor

Shipping 11 June, Aspire 4 marks 64 Audio's next generation of universal in-ear monitor systems specifically Designed for musicians and live music professionals.

Available from 11 June with an MSRP of $899.99, Aspire 4 is 64 Audio’s next generation UIEM specifically designed for musicians and live music professionals.

“Aspire 4 is a four-driver performance monitoring tool with the same sonic characteristics and technology worn by the world’s greatest performers using 64 Audio custom in-ear monitors,” explained Vitaliy Belonozhko, 64 Audio founder and chief executive officer. “Whether you’re just getting into monitoring with in-ears, not ready for customs, need a backup set, or simply prefer generic fitting products, Aspire 4 offers best-in-class sound and ergonomics.”

Aspire 4’s form factor prioritises ergonomics without sacrificing performance, all designed and engineered by the same innovative team responsible for developing the industry standard audio gear that 64 Audio is known for.

“With live music at the forefront of 64 Audio’s tuning criteria, do we make a highly accurate unforgiving studio monitor or a contoured device that helps musicians hear themselves more effectively?” questioned Belonozhko. “As with many of our monitoring tools, the answer is somewhere in the middle. Huge bass that can reproduce some of the toughest frequencies in the audible spectrum with quick ease. Forward mids that are precisely elevated for articulation in the most vital region of instruments and voices. Plenty of top end sparkle really separates Aspire 4 from any other UIEM in its class, making this powerful sound signature a perfect blend of accuracy and musicality.”

APEX Core, 64 Audio’s patented technology, is seamlessly integrated into the body of Aspire 4’s earphone. The pressure relieving channel provides controlled leak via acoustic filters as opposed to pneumatically interactive foam in 64 Audio’s traditional apex™ implementation. Aspire 4 users can significantly reduce ear fatigue while maintaining roughly -20db of noise isolation.

Aspire 4 also includes Waveguide, a custom designed acoustic structure integrated onto the high-frequency balanced armature driver. Unique in its shape and implementation, this waveguide increases the driver’s efficiency by directing and focusing its energy for a crisp and clear sound. While hard to compete with the legendary response of 64 Audio’s patented tia high-driver, this configuration may be the closest thing to it on the market.
