Hear Back PRO is a high-end yet affordable monitor mixing system. Incorporating Waves SoundGrid technology in Hear Back PRO enables monitor mixing engineers to use Waves’ award-winning plugins, resulting in the best sound quality for in-ear mixing/monitoring. Based on Gigabit Ethernet, Waves SoundGrid also enables the Hear Back PRO system to easily network and connect with other SoundGrid-enabled devices. With its wealth of easy-to-use features, Hear Back PRO is the simplest, most affordable digital solution for attaining the ultimate mix and performance.

Nason Tackett, Senior Design Engineer for Hear Technologies, says, "With the Hear Back PRO, we set out to build a high-end yet affordable monitor mixing system that is easy to use. Our partnership with Waves makes it easy to directly connect other high-end audio equipment to the Hear Back PRO. This means a much simpler user experience, and it opens up the Hear Back PRO to the world of Waves plugins and Waves SoundGrid-enabled hardware."  

Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales & Marketing, comments, “We are delighted that we can offer Waves SoundGrid and the use of Waves plugins to Hear Technologies, enhancing the capabilities of Hear Back PRO and making it one-of-a-kind in its ability to network easily.”
