Most of the million or so singers in the U.S. are in vocal groups that could sound much better if they took their singing quality seriously enough to make time to improve it ....or had an easy way to achieve this goal quickly. In most cases, the singers don't really know what sounds to make, how to make them or have a way to monitor their singing quality. Also, while performing, these singers hear mostly the ensemble sound (and any accompaniment) and may not even hear their own voice at all.... or may not even be listening.

Each singer using this revolutionary new tool hears very clearly the real and total sound of his own voice which he doesn't hear now just listening to the reflections of his singing in the room. With HearFones, he hears what he really sounds like --the same voice the audience hears! In addition, while using HearFones, he hears himself much more predominantly over the rest of the ensemble, thus helping him to improve the quality of his output. You can practice your part right there while singing with the whole group! With simple instructions and a sincere effort to sound better, the singers in the ensemble can soon improve their performance dramatically.

All it takes is HearFones... and the desire to get better... to reach the goal of beautiful singing. The booklet "Singing Secrets" included with HearFones outlines simple steps needed to produce better individual sound. Many singers feel that when singing in a group their own efforts are not heard out front and thus sense that any vocal inadequacy will go unnoticed. Not so!. You cannot take poor quality singing, multiply it by 40 and get good singing. The chorus director cannot monitor all the voices individually, but each singer can!

The inventors of HearFones ...teachers and singers themselves... recognized these problems and believed that good acoustic design could bring the benefits of this neat concept to every singer. Imagine our surprise when testing early prototypes on singers, we found that time after time every singer sang better just by putting on HearFones! When we saw this happening, we knew we were onto something really big.

In addition, in the hands of a director, the singer can be shown the appropriate sound to sing, then, with HearFones, the singer duplicates the director's sound, often as necessary, to reproduce the instructor's example. After singing good sounds using the HearFones, the singer knows how it feels to sing this way and, in time, will be able to duplicate the sound without the "training wheels". It's that simple. The director can use some of the better "students" to teach others in the ensemble how to sound good and employ games and exercises to promote the use of better singing techniques. No step in the use of HearFones violates any recognized good singing practices. The beauty of it all is that it gets right to the heart of the matter...good sounding singing...right off! This is quality control in music and a great way to build confident singing.

It should be emphasized that one of the most important contributions of this tool is that HearFones focuses the singer's attention on his own voice, often for the first time.

Ensembles may use HearFones to produce better quality sound in recording sessions. Soloists will find this tool most useful in their own vocal improvement in any singing style. Speakers use HearFones to monitor their own diction, modulation and delivery. HearFones also find many uses in the Speech and Hearing Therapy fields.

Not since Guido d'Arezzo's music notation in 1030 has there been such a help for the singer.

Make beautiful music; then go save the world anyway!

They work
I bought these because I have really been working on my singing and my unconcious need to sing loudly. I really wanted to work on singing more dynamically (with variations in loud/soft throughout the song). I always tend to push to be loud for some reason. These really helped me hear that and sing with less pushing- and therefor better sound. It was pretty immediate. I deducted a star for how bulky and embarassing they are to wear in public. I'd like to wear them at rehearsals at church- but they are awful looking LOL. Also a bit expensive. I wish there was a way to make them less 'tacky' looking.

Useful, But Not Worth The Money
I bought a pair to run some trials on voice students with "cognitive dissonance" issues (how they think they sound vs. how others actually hear them), and they were somewhat effective. However, I realized that they could achieve the same result for free by simply cupping their ears with their hands, so I decided not to recommend them to my students.

I use these devices for clients who are working with me to reduce their accents in American English. I recently had one client put them on when she could not hear the difference between her pronunciation and the target sound. They did help! I think they are priced rather high, though....
