VANCOUVER, WA, July 20, 2017 – 64 Audio (formerly 1964 Ears) is pleased to announce that on July 19, 2017, the U.S. Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) ruled in favor of 64 Audio, finding all claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,897,463, held by Jerry Harvey Audio Holdings (JH Audio), unpatentable.  A copy of the PTAB’s ruling can be found here.

The claims found to be unpatentable are directed to a dual high frequency driver in-ear monitor.  JH Audio asserted the claims against 64 Audio in a lawsuit filed December 2014.  64 Audio sought PTAB review of the dual high frequency driver claims in January 2016. 

64 Audio is happy with the PTAB’s ruling, as it solidifies the company’s long-held belief that the dual high frequency driver claims are invalid.  Founder and CEO of 64 Audio, Vitaliy Belonozhko, commented, “From day one we were very confident in our ability to prevail.” 

“We strongly believe in fair competition,” added 64 Audio’s Chief Administrative Officer Vlad Belonozhko.  “We believe we make a superior product and are always continuing to innovate and strive to create a better experience for our users,” he continued.  “With superstar artists like Beyoncé, OneRepublic, Seal, Jay-Z, and Bon Jovi, and great session musicians such as Kenny Aronoff and Nathan East using 64 Audio, it’s great to build a product for artists who want a better tool to help them give the very best performance – whether on stage or in a recording session. I love the impact we make!”
