Direct Sound

Hear what you need to hear clearly without ear-damaging levels or outside distractions.

Direct Sound Extreme Isolation Headphones are used by Terry Bozzio, Shawn Drover of Megadeth, and they're Blue Man group approved. The Direct Sound EX-29 headphones let drummers hear both mix and acoustic drums clearly at ear-saving levels. Now drummers can record "live" drums right next to their mixers; Front-Of-House engineers can monitor comfortably during live performances; studio musicians can finally hear the cue mix over loud instruments; engineers can use them for mic placement, and DJ's can isolate one ear and hear both CD and loudspeakers clearly for beat mixing.

What makes Direct Sound EX-29 sound isolation headphones so extreme? Specially designed earmuffs passively attenuate surrounding sound by a comfortable average of 28 decibels throughout the sound spectrum. With custom-fitted speaker assembly, the speakers are designed to protect your eardrums from damage and improve your recording and performance experience.

A frequency range of 20Hz-20kHz and advanced an-isotropic magnet drivers offer superior fidelity and sensitivity. Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme headphones fold for easy storage. Convenient dual cords are worn behind the head, which prevents them from interfering with your hands or instruments.

Not just for drummers, Direct Extreme Isolation Headphones are great for project studios, stage and studio musicians, sound engineers or for solitude at home.

Comments about Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

First of all, these headphones are great. I use them for tracking drums and they allow you to hear the mix and kill the outside volume very well. They're also comfortable. Comparing them to my HD280's they are a much better buy. They form a better seal around the ears and therefor block out more noise. They're also simplistic in design and resist damage unlike the HD280's which have been broken and repaired many times. I probably wouldn't recommend these headphones for mixing, but they're definitely perfect for tracking and for playing along with music while drumming. Also can be great to protect your ears while drumming or for setting up a mic on a loud 4x12 cab. Don't hesitate to pick up a pair of these!

Comments about Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

These headphones are awesome! I use them to play drums while listening to cd's. I have used several other brands and nothing comes close to the Direct Sound EX-29's. They are really light, too. I still can't believe the difference!!
