sius's founder and chief executive, Stephen Ambrose, began dabbling in audio technology as a teenager in the 1960s. A vocalist and guitarist, he invented tiny listening devices, similar to modern ear buds, using transistor-radio earpieces and swimmer's earplugs so he could hear his own voice while performing. Though he went on to a career in music, Mr. Ambrose continued to develop audio devices, eventually forming Asius. he 61-year-old Mr. Ambrose funded the company for the first 10 years with $500,000 of his own, and last year put in another $100,000.
...
n building Asius, Mr. Ambrose has faced several hurdles. For instance, it sued a hearing-aid maker in 2011 for allegedly interfering with its efforts to strike licensing deals with audio-product manufacturers. The case resulted in Asius entering into a nonexclusive licensing agreement with the defendant."It's a compliment to me and a testament to my technology's value when there are people who don't want to see it succeed," says Mr. Ambrose.

Do you have listener fatigue?

Asius lead engineer Stephen Ambrose has a long history of experiencing this fatigue himself. He's the original inventor of wireless in-ear monitors -- which are now used almost universally by stage musicians to hear a particular sound mix while they're performing -- and he's spent years engineering in-ear monitors for everyone from Michael Bolton and Clint Black to Bon Jovi and Steve Miller.
"I've mixed on stage with lots of different professional bands," Ambrose said. "And we noticed that after three hours of performing, our ears would ache."
Ambrose figured out a way to tweak earbuds to eliminate the audio fatigue, and the fix can also increase the vibrancy of the sound. The tweak amounts to creating a hole in the device that is then sealed with a gossamer membrane -- a sort of mock eardrum, or tympanic membrane -- that is able to absorb the more forceful sound waves from the speaker, taking the pressure off the real eardrum. The gadget can fight the fatigue and allow listeners to hear "louder" music even with the volume turned down.
The same technology can be applied to hearing aids. Ambrose has tested the idea on the hearing aids of one of his longtime friends, Gary Moore.
...
Ambrose said he's getting similar responses from other people who use hearing aids. "Hearing-aid wearers have been able to turn their hearing aids down by half or two-thirds because now the lower volumes sound much better, much louder, much more balanced and they're hearing a lot more details."
Ambrose and his colleagues are also working on creating a housing for an in-ear speaker that would, essentially, be made entirely of the fake tympanic membrane. The ear piece looks like a tiny balloon that inflates in the ear, sealing the canal. He expects that his group's discovery will spur more research into the ear's protective reflex. "We didn't just happen upon a gadget," he said.
