“I use my Extreme Isolation EX-29 headphones in the Nashville studios daily and they work perfectly every time. No ear fatigue at all, even on those all-day sessions. The new incrediflex headband is virtually indestructible.”

Duane Norman, Drummer at Nashville Studios

“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. Therefore, 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

In 2010, Morgan was voted No. 1 in Modern Drummer’s readers poll in the category “Fusion.” He is an avid Direct Sound headphone user, both inside and out of the studio.
