Advancements in listening devices

Ember enables Asius to 3D print the very tiny ADEL module, speeding production and allowing for the customization of their in-ear monitors. Because they’re using Ember, the workflow is smooth - from their design software, Fusion360, all the way through the to the end result.

"As the father of in-ear monitors and in a way the grandfather of earbuds, I knew we needed performance that matched the demands of today’s customers. We sampled many 3D printers. Only Ember offered the precision and design ecosystem at a price point that was affordable." Stephen Ambrose

In-ear monitors have been around for over 50 years. Simply put, these small devices are used by musicians and other audio professionals to protect their ears while they perform during a live performance or record in the studio. However, today’s earbud and most in-ear monitor makers shortchanged the in-ear monitor design resulting in the well-documented increase in hearing loss – especially among adolescents.

That’s where Asius Technologies comes in. In partnership with 1964 EARS, Asius has been dedicated towards improving the performance of in-ear monitors and the safety of earbuds so listeners can always enjoy their music without causing long-term hearing loss. Ultimately, this led them to creating the ADEL (Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens) module as a component of the in-ear monitors which act as a second eardrum, protecting hearing and providing unmatched sound to the wearer.

When Asius Technologies invented their second eardrum, they looked to 3D printing technology, including the Ember printer, to deliver products to their yearning Kickstarter backers.

Most importantly, their customers love what they do, and Ember gives Asius the security that comes with consistently delivering a high quality product. Learn more about how Asius is using Ember to revolutionize the world of in-ear technology by visiting their website.

Stephen Ambrose invented in-ear monitors, an advanced earbud used by professional musicians on stages around the world. This invention became today's earbuds. When he saw the resulting damage he returned to the lab and with National Institute of Health and National Science Foundation funds solved the problem by creating a second eardrum.
