Comply Foam Story

Welcome to the story behind the sound of science.  Welcome to our world, where science and passion collide.

Our story begins in 1990 when Robert Oliveira, Ph.D. (Dr. Bob) spun the Comply™ brand of products out of 3M.  A serial inventor and biochemist, Dr. Bob worked at 3M for 18 years developing products ranging from biochemical diagnostics to surgical instruments.  An ear canal expert, he also led a team at 3M who developed the world’s first FDA-approved cochlear implant.  Dr. Bob’s research, presented worldwide, demonstrates that the shape and opening of the ear canal changes as one’s jaw opens and closes.  Ear canal shape also changes with such attributes as an individual’s weight, age, and level of hydration.  This discovery of the ear canal’s dynamic nature led our development of numerous unique and patented memory foam solutions to protect and enhance hearing, including the world’s first memory foam earphone tip. Offering superior sound isolation, in-ear retention and soft comfort, Comply™ foam tips are sold globally to top brands and through distributors and retailers.  First used for audiology products, our technology has expanded into consumer electronics, military, law enforcement, industrial communications and hunting.  Today, over 75 earphone brands choose Comply™ tips as part of their earphone solution for the ultimate listening experience. In high-noise environments, Comply™ has become the standard for many communication systems used in military and industrial settings.  As a result of Hearing Components’ knowledge and expertise, we have been awarded several sizable research grants from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) We are a R&D focused company, and we are proud to say that all of our products are made in the USA… just a stone’s throw from our parent, 3M, in Oakdale, MN.

You’ll never listen to anything the same again.  We promise.

Fluid Audio FPX7 Ribbon Montor Speaker

Geschreven door peter op . Geplaatst in Fluid Audio, Nieuws

        

Building upon the acclaimed Fader Series of studio monitors, Fluid Audio now announces the new FPX (Fader Pro Coax) line of monitors, with the FPX7 leading the way. Featuring beefed-up Class AB amplifiers, a performance toroidal transformer for superior noise characteristic, optimized composite cone woofers and AMT tweeters, the FPX7 produces the most accurate monitoring experience in its price range.  With its lightning fast response, the AMT tweeter provides detail and depth only seen in Professional studios. What makes the FPX7 so unique, however, is that the AMT tweeter is mounted in the center of the woofer – in a coaxial configuration, which makes this speaker the first of its kind. Coaxial drivers, found in such world renowned monitors such as the Manley ML10, provide such accuracy and detail because all of the frequencies coming from the tweeter and woofer radiate from the exact same position in space.  This is critical for accurate off-axis response as well as phase coherence.  The AMT tweeter is mounted to a custom designed waveguide, which provides it with wide dispersion and an expansive sweet spot.   The complex, DSP controlled crossover provides a perfect blending of the woofer to the AMT tweeter, and ensures that there is effectively zero variance speaker-to-speaker. The “engine” is DSP powered.

FPX7 Highlights:

  • Seamless, transparent response in a compact footprint
  • 7” composite cone, low-frequency driver
  • Air motion transformer (ribbon) tweeter provides an extremely fast and accurate response
  • Bi-amplified 140Watt Class A/B amplification (90w woofer/50w AMT tweeter)
  • Acoustic Space Control lets you calibrate the FPX7 to your mixing environment ( 0, -2, -4db )
  • Tweeter high frequency trim control ( +2, 0, -2db )
  • Fader Volume control on front baffle for easy access
  • 42Hz – 27kHz frequency response
  • Front loaded slot port for directional bass response
  • Amplifier standby function to conserve energy
