It all started when Stephen Ambrose reached out to Johnson via a YouTube video.
In 1964, Ambrose invented the original in-ear monitor that slowly became an industry standard. Unfortunately, over the years, Ambrose realized that the monitors may have been damaging to the hearing of those that used them, so he began working with scientists to develop a device that would absorb the harmful pressures from extremely loud sound while letting the essence of the music through to the eardrum.
The new device is now marketed by Asius Technologies and 64Audio, whose name is an homage to the year that the first device was released, with artists like Dustin Lynch, Fred Hammond, the Newsboys, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Mandisa already using them while performing. The REALLOUD technology is supposed to deliver “a louder, more spacious and richer sound while avoiding the 77% increased risk of hearing loss from earbuds.”
Asius recently released a press statement that includes Johnson’s very enthusiastic comment about the new device.
Brian Johnson’s authorized press statement concerning his recent experience with Stephen Ambrose and his breakthrough ADEL hearing technology:
“It WORKS. It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it to be miniturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage.”
This great news is the result of a recent open message published by Stephen Ambrose (the original inventor of the wireless In Ear Monitors in 1965) to Brian Johnson who had to postpone touring as the frontman for AC/DC due to increasing hearing loss: https://youtu.be/GNq9tOGA-tY
Stephen wishes to sincerely thank all of Brian’s friends for their help in getting this message to Brian and making all this possible.
