Barefoot Sound started in 2006, but founder Thomas Barefoot began exploring the limits of speakercraft around the age of 13 by experimenting with building amps and speakers. A long path of discovery followed, eventually leading him to become a guru of sound. His technical knowledge paired well with his passion for music.
Carrying a PhD and deep knowledge of physics, Thomas Barefoot spent his spare time among the online recording community. In 2004, he ventured into building his own studio monitor based on his idea of how a monitor should sound, rather than the sound of industry-leading monitors already on the scene. The online community began placing orders for his self-made monitor, and Barefoot Sound officially took off in 2006.
Barefoot Sound pushes the boundaries of speaker design with highly effective technology to heighten the overall listening experience. When it comes to mixing, nothing is more important than consistent playback on different systems. Thanks to the brand’s special MEME™ Technology, it’s never been easier. Sophisticated DSP modeling brings you the voicing characteristics and responses of classic studio nearfield monitors. Cycle through the options to preview mixes through different speaker voices:Old School, Cube, Hi-Fi, and Flat.
Cabinet vibrations aren’t a problem when listening through Barefoot monitors. The Dual-Force™ Technology is an innovative force cancellation design to lessen cabinet vibrations. This is achieved when dual low frequency drivers are mounted on opposing sides of the cabinet. The cancellation occurs when the cones from both drivers are driven in and out in opposite directions. With this installed, vibrations are less problematic, especially when low frequencies begin to cause more drastic cone movement. Listen through a well-braced cabinet with the added benefits of Barefoot’s Dual-Force™ Technology.
Barefoot Sound takes great pride in the design of their advanced Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter. The real allure of this tweeter comes from its wide sweet spot, up to 40 kHz. The pinned diaphragm and precisely shaped phase plug make it all possible. Its increased bandwidth and exceptional dynamic range come from the deep tuned waveguide paired with other design aspects, like a powerful compact neodymium motor. Together, the MEME™, Dual-Force™, and proactive tweeter technology are innovations that make Barefoot the favored brand for so many professionals.
Barefoot Sound currently offers several exceptional products for the pro audio market, including the MicroMain26, MicroMain27, MicroMain45, MicroSub45, MicroStack45, MiniMain12, MasterStack12, and the Footprint line. Each model has its own advantages and caters to many different room shapes and sizes. Their diverse models feature various tech innovations that make the Barefoot brand the preferred choice of so many professionals.
The MicroMain studio monitors are fitted with electronics and drivers to reproduce sound with great dimension. These well-designed monitors meet the growing need for space in large to mid-sized studios. They can take the place of several sets of speakers and still deliver the depth and transparency needed for critical listening. For mid-sized rooms to project studios, the technology of the MicroMain has been brought to the Footprint01 and Footrprint02 for the same accurate listening experience with less volume.
Barefoot Sound’s top choice for professionals is their MasterStack12. It promises “vanishingly low distortion and breathtaking dynamic range” from a 4.5-way system. The flagship system is considered the crown achievement of Thomas Barefoot and combines all the best elements of his inventive approaches to designing speakers. The benefit of a 4.5 monitoring system is to create lower distortion and smoother transition throughout the crossover network. It’s everything you expect from a high-end studio monitoring system and more. Like all Barefoot monitors, the great flexibility of the switchable MEME™ technology is there to reference multiple playback textures.
