The U18 Combines proprietary pilots, LID technology and a new electronic crossover network to offer a unique and exceptional listening experience
VANCOUVER, Washington, May 19, 2021 – 64 Audio, the leader in custom fit and universal in-ear monitors, is proud to announce its new U18, the audiophile-grade, universal 18-speaker in-ear monitor now ships with an MSRP of $ 2,999.00.
“When we first introduced the U18s some time ago, the excitement we received from the industry was incredible,” said Vitaliy Belonozhko, Founder and CEO of 64 Audio. “In 2016, 64 Audio revolutionized the IEM industry with its world-class benchmark U18t, the industry’s first 18-driver headset. Now, with the U18s, 64 Audio has taken on the legacy of the 18-driver platform and pushed the boundaries of sound and design innovation even further. The U18s combine proprietary drivers, LID technology and a new electronic crossover network to deliver a unique and exceptional listening experience. “
The U18 features 18 precisely balanced, headset armature speakers and is handcrafted in the USA from aerospace-grade aluminum billets. CNC milled, sandblasted, fly cut and twice anodized… the result is a striking fractal design that draws inspiration from nature itself.
Additional specs for the U18s include:
- Driver configuration: 1 tia high, 1 high-mid, 8 mid, 8 low
- Frequency response: 10Hz – 20kHz
- Sensitivity: 106 dB / mW at 1 mW (84 mV)
- Impedance: 8Ω nominal
- Crossover: integrated 4-way passive
- Isolation: -10 dB with mX module; -15 dB with m15 module; -20 dB with m20 module
“Including a multitude of our exclusive technologies such as tiaTM and apex® that challenge traditional in-ear headphone designs, our U18s give you the best listening experience available today, ”Belonozhko concluded.
64 Audio’s patented air pressure exchanger (apex) is an interactive pneumatic vent that releases air pressure into a sealed ear canal. This ventilation alleviates listener fatigue and opens up the soundstage. All current 64 Audio IEMs feature Apex technology and are available in three variants (mX, m15 and m20) depending on the model purchased. Unlike competing ventilation solutions, the Apex preserves low frequencies and produces a more open soundstage, which helps the listener distinguish between individual instruments. The apex module is also designed with features to prevent vent clogging and wind noise. Its compact and durable construction is virtually maintenance free, designed for the most demanding users.
tiaTM is a 64 Audio proprietary technology that works by minimizing sound-altering tubes and dampers. The sound produced by the tia system is able to disperse freely and effortlessly, producing an incredibly smooth and musical frequency response. Two major components of the tia system include the tall tia motor and the tia single bore design.
LID ™ is a 64 Audio proprietary technology that ensures a consistent frequency response regardless of the source, making it perfect for musicians connecting to a variety of equipment.
A protective leather case is included with the Universal IEM U18s; TrueFidelity ear tips (S, M, L); silicone tips (S, M, L); SpinFit ear tips (S, M, L); eartip holder; 48 inch 8-braid premium silver cable; branded apex m20 modules; branded apex m15 modules; branded apex mX modules; Round audio sticker 64.
