“Obviously, we’re promoting the 3D Active Ambient, which is truly a unique product” notes company president Michael Santucci, a practicing audiologist. “But more importantly, we want to encourage all musicians and engineers to get their hearing checked. Too many musicians buying custom earphones just run out and get impressions made.”
“There are plenty of hearing professionals who will gladly shoot goop in your ears,” Santucci continues. “That’s fine, but it’s really just a starting point. The ‘Hear It All’ program makes it easy to take that process to the next level.” With a hearing test providing baseline information on state of a musician’s hearing, it becomes a simple matter to track changes over time. A fitting session for custom earphones ensures that the customer has a good fit and is confident inserting the earphones.
The 3D Active Ambient is a custom earphone system with an embedded binaural microphone system to allows musicians to add natural stage ambience to their in-ear mix with a compact bodypack mixer. Artists who use the 3D include Brooks & Dunn, R. Kelly, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, and drummer Dennis Chambers. Two versions are available: the 3DAA, for use with conventional wireless IEMs systems, and the 3DHW, a standalone hardwired system. Both are offered with either single-driver or dual-driver earphones.
“When I started this company in 1985, it was to help preserve the sense of hearing in musicians,” notes Santucci, “and that remains our entire focus. I think it’s safe to say that we’re the only company in the music industry that would rather sell a hearing test than a pair of earphones. With this promotion, we’re giving our customers both.”
