Musicians! Audio Engineers! Dr. Michael Santucci Wants to Save Your Ears...
Dr. Michael Santucci

Dr. Michael Santucci, Audiologist, Founder & President of Sensaphonics 

Dr. Michael Santucci, Au.D., is a respected audiologist specializing in hearing loss prevention (HLP) for musicians. Winner of numerous awards for his ground-breaking work in hearing conservation, Santucci is founder and president of IEM manufacturer Sensaphonics, Inc., personal audiologist to a number of major musicians and sound engineers, and sits as Vice Chair of the AES Technical Committee on Hearing and Hearing Loss Prevention. Established in 1985, Sensaphonics is renowned as a champion of hearing health in the music industry, winning the prestigious Safe-In-Sound Award for innovation in hearing loss prevention, presented by NIOSH and the National Hearing Conservation Association in 2009. Under Santucci’s leadership, Sensaphonics is a technology leader in personal monitoring, producing such innovative solutions as the first custom dual-driver IEM, the first soft silicone IEM (ProPhonic 2X-S), the patented 3D Active Ambient IEM System, the patented dB Check in-ear sound level analyzer and the 3D-ME Method, a music enhancement monitoring system for hearing-impaired musicians and music fans. Dr. Santucci currently serves as the expert consultant to the World Health Organization / Listen Safe initiative.

In-ear monitors have become a constant for many performers. Used correctly, they deliver a superior onstage mix and can help to protect and conserve the artist and technician’s hearing. But used incorrectly, IEMs can easily detract from a good mix while doing even more hearing damage than traditional floor wedges. During this session, Dr. Santucci will introduce the physiology of hearing, some of the benefits and potential pitfalls of using an in-ear monitoring system, and fundamentals of in-ear monitor engineering that can help with hearing conservation.

Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Radio Head, Lorde, Luke Bryan, Steven Tyler and many more A-listers need to get to Chicago to see Michael... but we’re bringing him to you!
