Job Title
Company Name
Future Sonics

Marty Garcia saw a need to create a way for the singer and musicians performing on stage to hear themselves without the blaring floor monitors. The Ear Monitor Concepts and Products were introduced in the 1980s and soon allowed Marty, a then road sound engineer, to form his own company, Future Sonics. With the help of key endorsements from performers like Phil Collins, Marty was able to build the business and focus on a string of designs that have helped make the Ear Monitor Concepts as common as a microphone, with benefits to the user that include healthier ears!
