The 2019 Society Calendar

  • January: Saturday, January 12th, 2-5 PM: The Los Angeles & Orange County Audio Society and the San Diego Music and Audio Guild will hold a special joint meeting at the Ultimate Ears production facility in Irvine (3 Jenner Street, Suite 180, Irvine, CA 92618).  Sud Munshi, Lab Technician, will take you behind the scenes of how in-ear monitors are manufactured at Ultimate Ears. Each product is handcrafted, precision-tuned and custom tailored to fit the unique contours of the ear, isolating it from any external noise. This starts with a unique digital scan or physical impression of the ear. Experts modify the shape to improve comfort and fit for all of the key audio and electronic components where each detail is meticulously developed. The custom ear shell is printed using the latest 3D printing techniques. Ultimate Ears has been 3D printing since 2015 to ensure a better fitting, more accurate product. We’ll follow up the tour with a Q&A and demo new products the UE 6 PRO and UE LIVE. Special pricing is 20% off on both products and we’ll raffle a UE LIVE! Special event pricing will be available on selected products. Eastwind Import will be on hand to offer especially selected Vinyl and CDs for sale. A raffle is planned and a delicious lunch will be provided. Members of both societies, music lovers and visitors are invited. Free parking is available.
