BLOG #90. Congratulations to Stephen Ambrose!
Six degrees of separation is the idea that all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. Also known as the 6 Handshakes rule.
In this case - between Brian Johnson of AC/DC and me - it's just two.

My most sincere congratulations to Stephen Ambrose of Asius Technologies for helping Brian to overcome his hearing loss!

I collaborated with Stephen on some new developments for the StereoPravda SPearphone project (which ones I can't tell yet as I' m under NDA).

Stephen's endorsement segment in this Brian Johnson's interview – the link is here - starts at 5:10. Read more…

To quote,

“…The [“SB-3.5”’s] sound quality is unprecedented, offering a large airy soundstage and an “out-of-your-head” experience with a very musical midrange. It is the perfect earphone for those who truly love the open soundstage of high-end open-backed dynamic headphones but want or need the isolation of an IEM. “
