“The EX-29s sound amazing and feel great. These phones are now my go to phones for recording and live work.”

Ron Robertson, Teacher / Drummer / Vocalist at The Drum Studio

“There are no other headphones that we would use other than Extreme Isolation Headphones. During the shooting of “The Steel,” we never know what type of situation we’re going to run into. That’s why we chose the EX 25s and 29s. These headphones allow us to hear all the unwanted background noise before we hit the record button. Insuring ‘perfect takes’ one hundred percent of the time. We all know that the more accurately the sound is captured, the less time spent in post-production fixing it. Thanks to Extreme Isolation, we sped up our production workflow.”
