A New Device Could Help Brian Johnson Return to Stage With AC/DC
Stephen Ambrose, founder of Asius Technologies and inventor of the in-ear monitor, has devised a new piece of equipment that reduces the risk of hearing damage while presenting louder audio at lower levels. As explained in the video below, the innovator partnered with the National Health Foundation and 64 Audio to create a device featuring a microscopic lens — Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL) — that acts as a filter.
Sounds are filtered through the lens, resulting in higher audio quality across the entire frequency spectrum from bass to mid to high. The ADEL distinguishes between static pressure and sound pressure, removing the static pressure which results in a higher quality listening experience with less damage to hearing.
Ambrose’s hope is that Johnson will consider using this new technology so he can “return to the stage, and that, frankly, is something everyone really wants”.
Brian Johnson has attributed his hearing loss to driving race cars rather than performing in stadiums and arenas with AC/DC since his instatement as the band’s lead singer in 1980.
