Praise

“These headphones are simply amazing. I got a chance to check them out when I was at Oceanway Studios with Alan Parsons as several of the session musicians were using them. They sound beautiful and in addition, keep all extraneous noises out of your headphone mix. Best of all, they don’t bleed click tracks back in to live mics, a real problem when tracking low vocals or acoustic guitar.”

Joey Stuckey, Guitarist / Producer / Songwriter

“Direct Sound Extreme Isolation headphones are, without question, the best I’ve ever used. I take them and use them at all my voice-over recording sessions. Simply stated. They’re Gr-r-r-reat.”

Lee Marshall, National Voice-Over Artist for Tony The Tiger / Kellogg’s

“I have been using the Extreme Isolation headphones now for 5 years, and in terms of overall quality, endurance and performance, nothing comes close. I have used them on every Megadeth record I have performed on, and even on an entire tour leg back in 2004, when I was suffering from extreme ear infection and vertigo – the Extreme Isolation headphones literally saved my ears from further damage, and for that alone I owe a lot of gratitude to them. I simply will not use anything else.”

Shawn Drover, Drummer for Megadeth
