Bristol, PA (Future Sonics Incorporated) - NAMM: Future Sonics, the original innovators of personal monitors and professional audio performance earphones, announced the release of their new and greatly anticipated product line, The Atrio Series (pronounced AYtree-oh). Built upon their latest MG5 driver technology, the new series will feature products specifically designed for live performance, recording studio, multimedia and broadcast applications. The new product line will also feature the company's ComfortFit brand sleeves as well as the option to upgrade to custom-fit SofterWear brand sleeves. Getting the sound quality, design and reliability to this level is the result of nearly three years of research, development and real use of these new technologies in the field with some of the best and most scrutinizing performers and engineers
Future Sonics has also announced today the release of their new patent-pending EarFills brand universal sleeves for their Atrio and Ears brands that provide longer-lasting comfort, fit and correct coupling with the ear canal. EarFills will be available as both standard with new products or as an option to ordering refills of other sleeves - depending on personal preference.
The Atrio Series
The Atrio Series continues Future Sonics' tradition of outstanding signature sound quality, reliability and client services, while featuring completely new designs and technologies specifically created to address the demands of top performers, engineers and production staff. As the concept of personal monitor systems continues to grow in the marketplace, The Atrio Series will be an excellent upgrade from any similar product and/or enhance the quality of any existing personal monitoring system.

-Natural "feel" with accurate dynamic bass frequency response
-Warm, rich vocal tone and clean detailed clarity in the upper frequencies
-Excellent reproduction of the timbre of the original source audio
-Full range performance from a miniature loudspeaker measuring under 10mm

Our chief engineer, Brian Skinner and the entire design team are extremely proud of what we have accomplished with this new series and we have created something beyond anything in this category on the market today.

Bigger sound, lower levels gains attention from The H.E.A.R. Foundation
The Atrio Series is recognized by The H.E.A.R. Foundation as a product offering its full range of sound and performance at even the lowest volumes. H.E.A.R. applauds Future Sonics' new 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.
