NEW YORK, Dec 9 — In response to increasing reports of hearing loss in teenagers and risk of hearing loss for musicians, audio engineer to the stars Stephen D. Ambrose has revolutionised earphones with his RealLoud technology, which eliminates harmful pressures.

Earphones and in-ear monitors are known to be harmful, although they offer advantages for musicians and audio engineers, such as providing a mix of audio sources to the performer.

Because they seal the ear canal, the acoustic pressure of the sound turns to pneumatic pressure, which causes tiny muscles in the ear to contract in attempts to dull the sound, making the user need an even higher volume.

The secret is a secondary eardrum in the device that absorbs pneumatic pressure that builds up as a result of sound in the ear canal that’s sealed by an ear-bud.

Ambrose has added this second drum into all his ADEL earphones and 1964ADEL in-ear monitors, which were his groundbreaking innovations of the 1960s.
