8 BA + 1 Dynamic
The 64 Audio Nio is a fun-sounding IEM with excellent technical capability and flexibility with the inclusion of the apex modules. Nio has a controlled and punchy bass, mids are full, and non-fatiguing treble. It stands tall amongst some of the best IEMs out there.
EXTRAORDINARY SOUND MEETS EXTRAORDINARY DESIGN IN THE 64 AUDIO NIO
64 Audio is a US company from Vancouver, Washington, focused on designing and manufacturing high-quality custom and universal in-ears. With future-oriented innovations such as tia, apex, and LID, the premium in-ear monitors included in the range of 64 Audio outperform their traditional counterparts. The 64 Audio Nio is the latest universal In-Ear Monitor from the brand and aims to present an effortlessly smooth sound signature together with the highly technical sound. Nio features a 9 mm dynamic driver for lows, an array of six balanced armatures for mids, a high-mid BA and a single tia high driver. Now, with the introduction of Nio, 64 Audio has taken advantage of the hybrid array and further pushed the envelope of innovation in sound and design. Nio combines proprietary drivers, LID technology and a new electronic crossover network to deliver an exceptional listening experience.
LEVERAGING 64 AUDIO’S PROPRIETARY TIA TECHNOLOGY AND SINGLE BORE DESIGN
The 64 Audio Nio features exclusive technologies that challenge traditional in-ear monitor designs to give you the best listening experience. The Nio features a driver array which offers a three-dimensional high-resolution sound thanks to the proprietary TIA technology and the accompanying TIA single-bore design. Tubeless In-Ear Audio (TIA) is a patented IEM design methodology aiming to reduce unwanted resonance and distortion for a transparent and lifelike sound. The TIA system has three elements including an open TIA balanced armature drivers, TIA single-bore design, and TIA acoustic chambers. Nio features the tia driver and the tia single-bore design. The TIA driver is an open balanced armature speaker designed for realistic resolution and transparency. By modifying a balanced armature, the diaphragm becomes completely unobstructed, reducing resonance in the IEM and allowing sound to travel more naturally to the ear. The TIA Single Bore has a considerable advancement in eliminating unwanted tube resonance. The large bore serves as a sound-shaping chamber and aids the TIA high driver in delivering a linear and coherent frequency response. The short sound path provides remarkable high-frequency extension and smoothness. The bore also allows for easier maintenance.
EMBEDDED WITH A HYBRID DRIVER ARRAY TO PRESENT A DETAILED AND LIFE-LIKE SOUND
The team at 64 Audio have pushed the boundaries of how a hybrid driver array manages to achieve a full and engaging audio reproduction. 64 Audio embeds proprietary TIA technology BA drivers and a dynamic driver that are elevated in their functioning and eliminate the issues faced with traditional hybrid configuration. The driver configuration for the Nio consists of a 9mm dynamic driver and 8 balanced armature drivers that work in harmony with each other. With a sound signature characterised by extended lows and a rich 3-dimensional soundstage, Nio’s smooth treble and natural warmth will provide hours of enjoyable listening for all genres of music. Rather than constricting the sound of the drivers by fitting a tube onto them, Nio’s TIA technology reduces unwanted resonance and distortion by allowing the 9mm Dynamic Driver and TIA High Driver to radiate freely into the single large TIA bore with no obstructions to the front of the drivers. These drivers are managed with an integrated 4-way passive crossover and allow the Nio to achieve a frequency response of 10Hz - 20,000kHz and a sensitivity of 105 dB/mW. The impedance of the Nio is also nominal and can pair with a variety of devices.
INCORPORATING APEX TECHNOLOGY TO ALLEVIATE FATIGUE AND EXTEND THE SOUNDSTAGE
64 Audio integrates proprietary modular Apex technology for a fatigue-free sound experience and adjustable ambience isolation. Air Pressure Exchange (Apex) is a patented vent that releases air pressure in a sealed ear canal all while retaining standard IEM levels of isolation, enabling musicians and music enthusiasts to listen more comfortably for longer. This venting alleviates listener fatigue and allows for a much more realistic soundstage. When you seal a miniature speaker in an ear canal, the air inside becomes trapped. Apex relieves this air pressure, allowing the eardrum to move naturally, so you can comfortably listen longer. Apex technology also extends the soundstage by allowing air to move freely and provides a more natural listening experience. It also preserves bass frequencies and helps the listener distinguish individual instruments. Apex also lowers decibel levels while presenting the clarity of the sounds around you, so artists on stage can connect with their audience while protecting their hearing.
CLEAR AND VIVID SOUND EVERY TIME YOU USE THE NIO WITH THE LID CIRCUIT
64 Audio Nio makes use of exclusive technologies to push the performance tenfolds. One such technology embedded in the Nio is the LID (Linear Impedance Design) circuit. LID, or Linear Impedance Design, enables a consistent, reliable sound regardless of the source. This proprietary circuit corrects the non-linear impedances of the drivers, restoring proper interaction with the source device and preserving the desired sound signature. Varying source amplifier output impedance in devices like smartphones, body packs, DAC/amps, and DAPs typically results in varying frequency responses across them, depending on the increase in resistance. Restoring proper interaction with the source and preserving the desired sound signature enables a reliable sound. Whether you're a musician plugging into gear at different gigs or studios or an audiophile listening from low-impedance sources, LID ensures your IEMs present the desired sound signature.
TASTEFULLY DESIGNED WITH ABALONE FACEPLATES AND BUNDLED WITH ACCESSORIES
64 Audio are well known amongst the audiophile community and even musicians for offering highly considerate and detailed in-ears. Every aspect of the build is carefully thought through and serves a purpose at large. Just like the internal architecture that is expertly engineered, the exterior of the 64 Audio Nio is painstakingly designed with the best materials and techniques. Nio features some extra details which add some visual excitement. Nio exudes a respectable design, ultimately practical with durable construction. Each ergonomic shell is machined out of a solid piece of aluminium and finished with the striking blue abalone faceplate. The Nio comes with much-needed accessories to get you started right out of the box. You get a variety of TrueFidelity foam and silicone ear tips, each in sizes S, M and L, a black premium cable, and three Apex modules (mX, m15 and m20) with a leather case.
