Dr. Michael Santucci, president of Sensaphonics and ASI Audio, guests on 'The Table' podcast

Dr. Michael Santucci, noted audiologist and president of customized hearing protection specialists ASI Audio and Sensaphonics, is the latest guest on The Table, a podcast hosted by Jason Squires focused on the world of worship leadership and music ministry.

For nearly 40 years, Santucci has been on a mission to protect musicians—and engineers—from the damaging effects of loud sound. A musician from a family of musicians, Santucci was inspired to found Sensaphonics in 1985, initially researching and evaluating ear-filtering products, after the singer quit the band that he was in because her ears were ringing.

On the newest episode of The Table, host Jason Squires seeks insights from Santucci’s decades of experience at the intersection of hearing protection and in-ear monitoring. Squires admits that in the past he has often relied on a common trick – taking one in-ear monitor out and leaving the other in, to get a mix of the monitor signal and the room sound in the opposite ear – without considering whether it might be leaving him susceptible to hearing damage. Additionally, he is also concerned about performers setting their IEMs too loud, as well as the short- and long-term effects of ear fatigue. In this engaging conversation, Santucci provides expertise on these topics and others, and he explains the philosophy behind the ASI Audio x Sensaphonics 3DME Active Ambient Monitoring System and how it serves as a solution to all of the above-mentioned problems.
