Introducing the latest addition to the Hear Technologies family – Hear Back PRO.

With this system, there is no learning curve. Whether or not you’ve ever used a personal monitor mixer, the simple layout of this powerful system makes getting the right mix a quick and effortless experience. Based in Gigabit Ethernet, this framework paves the way for an impressive range of future possibilities.

The Hear Back PRO System: Hub & Mixers
The Hear Back PRO system consists of two main components: the Hub and the Mixer. The modular Hub consists of four card slots, which can be populated with any configuration of input and/or output cards to fit your exact needs. Each Hub has the ability to supply signal and power to as many as 32 Mixers (8 per Network Card), each over a single standard Cat5E/6 cable. And with the built-in HBus In/Out ports, multiple Hubs can be daisy-chained together, allowing for truly unlimited system expansion.

The Hear Back PRO boasts many key advantages, including:
  • Side-mounted card slot on Mixer for future expansion
  • Large master knob controls overall main mix, AUX, and intercom levels independently
  • Volume and panning control of all
  • 16 channels
  • Direct and immediate visual feedback of all 16 channels
  • Up to 8 pairs of stereo-linked channels
  • Support for sampling rates up to 192 kHz
  • Selectable XLR or 1/8” Mixer AUX input
  • Built-in intercom broadcasts the AUX source (mic, MP3 player, click, etc.)
  • Intercom auto adjusts its own level so even the quietest message never goes unheard
  • Modular I/O Hub card system lets you customize the system to match your configuration, and can adapt to your needs
  • Supports secondary power supply to provide redundancy and power to up to
  • 32 Mixers
  • USB port on Hub makes updating firmware for future features and upgrades a simple drag-and-drop operation
  • Status indicating logos on Hub and Mixers make it easy to detect and diagnose problems, should they arise
  • Write session info and channel settings on storable Mixer overlays for an unlimited number of presets
  • Instantly store and recall presets from memory with the push of a button
  • Most recent configuration is saved, even after power-down
