“No bleed, Crystal Clear audio, Comfortable and Affordable. The best phones on the market. Thank you!”
I did a great deal of research before going with Extreme Isolation Headphones. I find these headphones to be “dynamically consistent” from drum to drum (cymbal to cymbal). In other words, it’s a TRUE MIX to my ears. Other headphones block out certain frequencies, while allowing others to bleed in. The result is an uneven mix!!! Therefor I have a tendency to hit certain drums harder or softer, in an effort to blend my sound. This doesn’t happen with Extreme Isolation Headphones. My drum mix is consistent and true…just at a lower level. If these headphones will stay on my head they will stay on yours.
I won’t record without them…period!
Steve Moore, The MAD DRUMMER
Comfort and durability with outstanding hearing protection!
The EX-29, I love the sound and have deep bass which is why I need as a drummer!
I love my EX-29′s!!! They have the perfect isolation for a drummer plus they are very light which is great for working long sessions and they sound amazing. What else can I ask for?
The isolation of the EX-29′s are incredible! You can have your headphone level blasting and barely hear any leakage. Gone is the problem of headphone feedback! A real coup for all broadcasters-especially those on the air!
Program Director K-Earth 101 The Wave Los Angeles
There are no other headphones that we would use other than Extreme Isolation Headphones! During the shooting of “The Steel,” we never know what type of situation we’re going to run into. That’s why we chose the EX 25’s and 29’s. These headphones allow us to hear all the unwanted background noise before we hit the record button. Insuring perfect “takes” one hundred percent of the time!
Hey!!! We all know that the more accurately the sound is captured, the less time spent in postproduction fixing it!
Thank you Extreme Isolation for speeding up our production workflow!!!

“I love my EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones. I use them for live shows instead of floor monitors, as well as using them in the studio. They are awesome, especially when using a click track. After being onstage my ears
used to ring quite often. I enjoy the hearing protection I get now at the same high stage volumes just by using my Extreme Isolation headphones. The staff and service at Direct Sound has been fantastic. Everyone there has always gone the extra mile and beyond to assist me.”

“When I put these headphones on my ears the rest of the world disappears. All I hear is exactly what I want to focus on – the music. The designers even made it easy to know which phone goes on which ear by color coding left and right. I use these in the recording studio as a side check monitoring system when producing singers. While they’re slightly larger than what I’m used to, the additional isolation sharpens my audio perception so I can be spot-on coaching the vocals during tracking and in analyzing the results during playback”

John Cowsillbegan his career as a drummer and singer at the tender age of seven, playing clubs in Newport, Rhode Island, with his brothers. The Cowsills became a sensation in the late sixties, earning several top 10 hits, numerous television appearances (including their own hour-long TV special), and touring worldwide. After the family members went their separate ways in the early seventies, John played drums, percussion and sang with artists as diverse as Dwight Twilley, Bette Midler, Tommy Tutone and The Smithereens. He has also worked with Buzzy Feton, Billy Payne, Ernie Watts, Harry Chapin and the Bangles (his wife is the Bangles’ Vicki Peterson). During the eighties, John toured with Jan and Dean, who introduced him to Mike Love. John joined the Beach Boysin 2000, initially as a featured vocalist playing piano and percussion. John is presently back in his comfort zone–the drum seat–playing, singing, and touring year-round with the Beach Boys.
