Praise

“The first time I used Direct Sound Extreme Isolation headphones was on a session where my regular headphone cable was going bad. The studio had a pair of EX-25s so I gave them a try. I was so impressed that I have not used anything but EX-25s or EX-29s on a session since. I always bring an extra pair to sessions and lend them to any players that are near the drum kit while tracking. The isolation and clarity allows for relaxed playing for hours with no ear fatigue. I love these headphones.”

Travis McNabb, Drummer for Sugerland / Former Drummer for Better Than Ezra

“I am so in love with these headphones. I use the Extreme Isolation EX-29 in white. Not only are they super comfortable to wear, they are also the best sounding headphones I’ve used in the studio. I also use them when I’m songwriting along side with my digital recorder. The isolation of sound really allows me to get lost into the craft of songwriting. And they have been vital in the studio while recording my upcoming album – Wild Horse.”

Michele Vreeland, Singer / Songwriter

“The EX-29s are nothing short of extreme. Extreme quality, clarity, and an extremely comfortable fit. I choose Extreme Isolation – hands down.”

Josh Mighell, Drummer for Cowboy Casanova
