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

“Right out of the box, I dug these headphones. In the studio, they’re immensely helpful – canceling out any microphone bleed from my drums and of course cutting down the volume level which protects my hearing for the long run. They sound great, and expose all the nuances of any type of music, from great highs to realistic lows. I keep a pair in the studio, and also at home. Don’t practice, fly, or record without them.”

Paul Peress, Drummer / Music Director for Moby, The B-52′s and Guy Davis

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.
