Justin Hayward is best known as a songwriter, lead singer and guitarist for the rock band Moody Blues. When Justin was 15, he was able to afford a Gibson guitar and a Vox amplifier through performing with local Swindon groups in clubs and dance halls playing mostly Buddy Holly songs. One of Justin's early groups was All Things Bright, which opened for The Hollies and Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. In 1965, he answered an advertisement in Melody Maker and auditioned as guitarist for Marty Wilde and he joined Marty Wilde as a member of his backing band “The Wilde Cats.” His famous voice can also be heard on Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. Justin has recently been involved in the remastering of The Moody Blues back catalogue for Universal Music.
"I've been using my Puretone in ears for a while now and they are perfect for me. They are simple, bright and clean."
- Justin Hayward
IEM's have given me a greater sound quality helping me to improve my vocals. You're able to move freely around the stage. They also lower the decibel level saving my hearing. I strongly recommend custom in-ear monitoring and Puretone Music. Huge thanks Andy Pelos (Lead singer For Showaddywaddy). - Andy Pelos, Showaddywaddy
Absolution formed in May 2010 with the sole intention of fulfilling an obligation for a 40 minute support slot. Now, with the second studio album Dusty Road released, international sales, critical acclaim for debut effort Issues and first concert release Live From The Front along with a growing fan base, that 40 minute support slot has over-run somewhat!
With three musicians from different backgrounds and different styles, Absolution create a fresh and exciting sound.
"Puretone Micro Monitors are the only in ear monitors I could ever want to use. Hearing protection along with perfect clarity of sound gives me exactly what I need every time!"
- Joe, Absolution.

- DJ Steven Cooper - 98FM DJ
“I love my monitors they are unreal to use and the difference they made the next morning! I had no ringing in my ears!
Mixing with them took a little while but they work a treat!
The sound is amazing and I'm trying to encourage more DJs to convert!
A big thank you to Paul Hussey of Hearing Healthcare Ireland for taking the impressions and fitting the monitors.”

Phil James, guitarist from "The Craze" preforming at the west end, in a show called "One man Two Guvnors" starring James Corden.
“Last night was our live broadcast which was an amazing experience! We played to over 100,000 people across the world and the monitors did us proud.
The MMC3's are the most responsive and comfortable monitors I have used to date. With almost perfect isolation I can get the mix I need in loud live situations or in the studio. Fantastic!
I think you can’t beat them.”
- Philip James, The Craze
- Joe Atkinson, THAT SUNDAY FEELING
“Hi, this is Joe Atkinson on the McFly 2011 ‘Above the Noise Arena Tour’.
I'm here promoting Puretone in ear systems, these are the ones I have here, custom-made and moulded to your ear as you can see here.
Very pristine sound, I have been using these a lot, they really detail the lows as well as the highs, and also get the middle mixed in very well. I think for a good budget and overall excellent sound in all venues really, I have used these in small venues and as well as the bigger ones. I think you can’t beat them.” - Joe Atkinson, THAT SUNDAY FEELING.
"When I was asked to perform at the Sydney Opera House with The Cure this year I knew I needed the best monitors available! Puretone's Micro Monitor Classic 3s provided me with a level of clarity and quality that I had not heard before in over 15 years of using "in ears". They have taken it to a new level"
- Roger O'Donnell, The Cure.

Born 1978 in New York, but largely based in Britain, Justin's
professional career began in his late teens, sitting in on his father’s gigs in New York and he has been establishing an ever increasing reputation on both sides of the Atlantic. His debut album with his own group Bakehouse was named 1 Jazz Album of 2005 by MOJO magazine and described as “Convincingly jagged, serene, tranquil, provocative, reassuring and strangely beautiful all at once”.
Justin is also a winner of the 2004 BBC Jazz Award for Innovation.
Micro Monitors delivery a fantastic level
of clarity across the audio spectrum without
the midrange spike found in many other in-ears.
I rarely leave home without them!"
- Justin Quinn.
Hailing from the South East, TMA consists of four guys with an incessant passion
for OTT, wailing 80's metal. Throwbacks? Think again fast.
What makes this band so exciting is that they've mixed the best examples of
todays metal with British heavy metal that was around two decades ago. Think;
dual guitar solos hotter than a night with Angelina Jolie, Beatdowns that could
take your head clean off and bridges so epic and tough, you'd form a six pack
and pecks with one dangerously infectious listen.
