FUTURE SONICS ON THE ROAD WITH HANNAH MONTANA STAR, MILEY CYRUS SOLD OUT TOUR WITH BIGGER SOUND AT LOWER VOLUME(TM)
Disney pop superstar chooses Ear Monitors® brand custom personal monitors as best for the "Best of Both Worlds"
[JOINT RELEASE] BRISTOL, PENNSYLVANIA/SAN FRANCISCO, CA/LAKE BUENA VISTA, CA -- February 4, 2008: Singer, actress superstar, Miley Cyrus performs on her sold out "The Best of Both Worlds" tour with Future Sonics Ear Monitors® brand personal monitors and supporting the company's new "BIGGER SOUND @ lower volume(TM)" campaign to help educate audiences about the importance of proper listening for the "iPod® Generation."
Future Sonics has teamed up with H.E.A.R.® along with other performers, engineers and audiologists to promote the new campaign. Vish Wadi, monitor engineer for Cyrus, reports that the Disney star of Hannah Montana realized how much she was missing from other products once she made the switch to Future Sonics Ear Monitors®. "This is the sound that Miley was hoping for and Marty Garcia's team at Future Sonics delivered." Like her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who is a 15-year Future Sonics client, the long-term hearing questions were an important consideration for his famous daughter. "I wasn't getting the sound that I wanted before," reports the nearly 16 year-old Cyrus. "Future Sonics has everything I want so that the music sounds really incredible on stage or just listening to my music player and I don't need to make it too loud."
According to Jason Morey, Cyrus' manager, who was looking for the best approach to sound quality, hearing health and an experienced audio team to meet the challenges of a range of tour dates and appearances, "Looking at the 'big picture,' we want the right solutions for the long-term as well as today and Future Sonics delivers every time."
"This is an important time for anyone who spends a lot of time listening with any earphone product, but we know that proper use of these items and a better quality of sound are steps that can help a lot in reducing the potential for hearing fatigue and loss," states Marty Garcia, founder and president of Future Sonics. "We are proud to have the support of so many significant people -- both on stage and off -- to let people know that there is much more to it than just cranking up the volume. In fact, they are probably missing out on so much that way."
