64 Audio has announced the launch of its special edition N8 customizable in-ear monitor. N8 is now available at 64audio.com and authorized international retailers, with an MSRP of $1,699.00 USD.
“N8 (pronounced “Nate”) is targeted towards musicians and discerning audiophiles who are looking for a sonic signature that delivers amazing clarity across all frequencies with abundant headroom available in the lower end of the audible spectrum,” explained Vitaliy Belonozhko, 64 Audio founder and chief sound designer. “To achieve the necessary sound flavor, 64 Audio opted for a hybrid design utilizing a 9mm dynamic driver for the lows and eight balanced armature drivers for the midrange and highs. The result is an incredibly intimate and smooth sound with punchy lows, luscious mids, and a silky treble with an analog sensation. The N8 also features 64 Audio’s patent-pending technologies, including tia™, apex™ and LID™.”
Like all 64 Audio Custom IEMs, the N8 monitors are customizable and are hand-built from each uniquely shaped ear impression. They are inherently noise isolating and are designed to work with a wide range of personal audio devices as well as all hard-wired and wireless monitor systems. N8 accessories include 64 Audio personalized protective case, dehumidifier, cleaning tool, shirt clip, 48- or 64-inch detachable professional cable, m15 or m20 apex modules, round 64 Audio brand sticker, and 2-year warranty.
tia, apex, and 3D Fit™
64 Audio’s patent-pending tia (Tubeless In-ear Audio) Technology does away with traditional tubes and dampers to eliminate resonances and deliver an incredibly smooth and musical frequency response. apex™ (Air Pressure Exchange) Technology is a pneumatically interactive vent that dramatically reduces listening fatigue by releasing sound pressure that is inherent in other earphone designs. 3D Fit is 64 Audio’s proprietary 3D shell printing process that results in a personalized fit not found in any other Custom IEM.
N8 was created through a collaboration with Grammy-nominated bass player Nathan East. “It was truly a pleasure and a privilege to work with Nathan on this project,” said Belonozhko. “He’s an exceptional artist with a unique style that comes through in all of his albums. It was an exciting challenge to achieve the sound signature we had targeted and it pushed us to develop something new together. That’s what this is all about…working hand-in-hand with musicians to push our very own boundaries and deliver something special to our customers.”
Added East, a world-renowned recording artist with more than two thousand credits as a bass player alone, “Collaborations have been a big part of my career. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many talented and creative people. That’s what gets me excited about making music. From the moment I first tried a pair of 64 Audio in-ears, I knew they were doing something special. I’m very proud of what we came up with. The N8s are the perfect complement to my touring world and definitely music to my ears.”
Some of East’s most recent notable credits include songs and albums by Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, Toto, Anita Baker, Beyoncé and contemporary jazz supergroup Fourplay.
