    I've owned the Hearback System for a few years now, and I consider it a must-have studio piece. Every singer that comes into my studio loves having a "More Me" knob and being able to dial in their headphone mix just right. Great customer service from Front End Audio!

    Great Product for the price

    We were planning to purchase a high-end, more popular personal monitoring system for. However, did our research and found that the Hear Back system would meet our needs (minus all the extra features of the high-end system) for literally a fraction of the price. Now that we've had a chance to try them out, we know we've made the right decision. Also, the customer service at FrontEnd Audio is top notch & personal. We ordered two sets of the four Packs with the intention of using the second hub as a back-up. On Wednesday 2/12/2014, we decided to swap out the hubs just to be certain the back-up hub is okay. Sure enough, the back-up hub would not power up. We informed FrontEnd Audio via email & received a tracking number for the replacement hub this morning (Monday 2/17/2014).
