VANCOUVER, WA — 64 Audio, a supplier of custom and universal fit in-ear monitors, announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit recently ruled in 64 Audio’s favor.

During this process, the court reviewed and affirmed the U.S. Patent Trial & Appeal Board’s decision, which found all claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,897,463, held by Jerry Harvey Audio Holding (JH Audio), unpatentable.

The claims found to be unpatentable are directed to a dual high-frequency driver in-ear monitor. JH Audio asserted the claims against 64 Audio in a lawsuit originally filed in December 2014. 64 Audio sought inter partes review of the dual high-frequency driver claims in January 2016.

“We cannot emphasize enough that we strongly believe in fair competition in our industry, and we are pleased with the latest outcome in this process,” said 64 Audio founder Vitaliy Belonozhko. “One of 64 Audio’s core strengths has always been innovation,” he continued, stating 64 Audio looks forward to “continuing to create the best experiences possible for the 64 Audio family of customers.”
