Praise

“When it comes to recording, headphones are one of the first things I think about – because it’s got to sound good in the cans. These headphones are wonderful, very comfortable, light-weight, affordable and most importantly they sound great.”

Tony Graci, Composer / Instrumentalist for Limebeat Music and Sound

“To put it simply, these are the best sounding isolation headphones on the market. The audio clarity is amazing and they are “extremely” comfortable to wear. Whether I’m playing a session halfway around the world, using the kit, or teaching in my home studio, Direct Sound headphones are all I rely on.”

Jim Riley, Drummer and Bandleader for Rascal Flatts

“The Direct Sound EX-29s are simply fantastic. Everything sounds crystal-clear, and the superb isolation lets me record even close-miked acoustic guitars with no audio leakage. They’re possibly the best headphones I’ve used in 30 years.”

Kent Burnside, Guitarist / Composer
