At the 2008 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, TN, Future Sonics is unveiling its revision 2 edition of the critically acclaimed Future Sonics Atrio® (pronounced AY-tree-oh) professional earphones. This revision includes some great new improvements that respond to musicians, engineers, producers, production companies, plus excellent consumer responses and the company's own research and development, but with no MSRP price increase to the end-user.
“We were able to listen to our clients and respond to the things they’ve asked for while maintaining our signature sound,” states Marty Garcia, founder and president of Future Sonics. “There is nothing else like it anywhere, or at any price, and we’re very proud of what we continue to accomplish for excellence in audio quality and reliability.”
This new update is the ideal choice for a wide range of applications including the live concert stage, recording studios, broadcast applications, and house of worship. Atrio® is also the perfect companion for advanced gaming and digital media players like Apple's iPod®, iPod® Touch, iPhone®, Microsoft Zune®, Sirius® and XM® Satellite receivers and much more for those consumers who want professional audio quality from their personal digital media devices.

The Power of 1™
Atrio® professional earphones use a single studio-grade dynamic driver that is designed and manufactured by Future Sonics. This provides superior performance and the Future Sonics audio signature not found in any other product line, or at any price. Unlike two-way, three-way, four-way or so-called "hybrid" armature driver (hearing aid type) earphones, there are no electronic or comb filtering artifacts, no phase issues, and no crossover dropouts. Atrio® professional earphones provide a perfectly balanced, natural and realistic sound with a sense of "feel."
The universal fit of the Atrio® professional earphones also offer multiple options to satisfy individual preferences and ear sizes. Included with the device are three interchangeable pairs of Future Sonics designed EarFills ™ dual-flange silicon sleeves (small, medium and large) that allow the earpiece to fit snugly in any size ear canal. As another option, the Atrio® professional earphones come with two pairs of Future Sonics specially designed ComfortFit ™ foam sleeves (large and small); these sleeves can replace the EarFills ™ for wearers who prefer a more complete seal of the ear canal.
BIGGER SOUND @ lower volume™
Atrio® professional earphones are built to optimize the sound output and improve the enjoyment of any any media device include those for portable music and video, DVD players, PCs and gaming systems. They are recognized by H.E.A.R.® (Hearing Awareness and Education for Rockers) as a product offering its full range of sound and performance at even the lowest volumes. Future Sonics continues to support hearing education and conservation as it has for more than 20 years.
The Atrio® professional earphones are available in model m5 edition (onyx black), and model m8 edition (cobalt blue) with the only difference being their color. Both models include a premium-quality protective carrying case. Atrio® earphones carry a one-year warranty and can be purchased direct from Future Sonics as well as authorized dealers listed online.
