"The idea is not just to put ear pieces in performer's
ears simply so they can hear themselves without having to
compete with other levels in the on-stage environment.The
idea is to reduce the stage sound pressure levels (SPLs) and
let them hear left and right, a near studio-quality stereo
image, with as few conventional monitor speakers as possible."
-Marty Garcia, President of Future Sonics
and acknowledged innovator of personal monitors

Future Sonics Incorporated at the H.E.A.R. booth
From the beginning, Future Sonics has promoted hearing
education awareness to music industry professionals. Future
Sonics is a friend of H.E.A.R. and a proud sponsor of H.E.A.R.'s
1995-96 tv & radio PSA with Lars Ulrich of Metallica,
and the 1996-97 TV & radio PSA with Les Claypool of Primus.
The Claypool PSA is distributed to stations throughout the
United States and Canada as part of H.E.A.R.'s on-going hearing
awareness campaign. Future Sonics continues to give annual
support to H.E.A.R.'s dedicated efforts to educate musicians,
sound engineers and all music fans!
Future Sonics recommends a hearing test so their clients
have a baseline view of what their hearing is like before
purchase Future Sonic products. This is a professional service
that must be performed by a licensed audiologist. The next
step in the process is to have impressions taken of the client's
left and right ears for the custom at-ear monitoring systems.
Future Sonics is recognized by the H.E.A.R. Foundation as a manufacturer of products offering their full range of sound and performance at even the lowest volumes. H.E.A.R. applauds Future Sonics professional earphones as a significant step forward in hearing conservation due to increased clarity across a broad range that measurably reduces the need for excessive amplification.
