Praise

“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

“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

“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
