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.

  • These are some of the best cans I've ever owned

    As reviewed by Cory on 7/17/2010

    I read the other reviews here and noticed a couple guys saying the quality of construction on these things isn't very good. Worse yet, someone said the customer service is bad! This couldn't be further from the truth. I've owned my pair for about a year now and it's undergone a LOT of abuse in that time. I work in film and TV production and due to the nature of my work, my gear gets knocked around a lot. These cans have been dropped, stepped on, sat on, crushed under a heavy 2k light during transport, slammed in a car door, and been exposed to dust, dirt, rain and extreme heat (115 degrees in Arizona) and come through it all with only minor problems (a seam on the headband padding split, and the glue on the ear pads melted in extreme heat), both of which were dealt with by the company the same day or the next day from when I emailed them. Best yet, every time I've emailed the company, the OWNER himself has been the one to respond. These guys make an extremely durable, comfortable, quality product and clearly care very much about their customers. If you have any kind of problem with yours, remember that there is a manufacturer warranty of one year and go ahead and contact them to get your troubles resolved. I use EX-29 Extreme Isolation headphones on every shoot I work and have no problem recommending them to anyone, especially people in my same line of work. They're comfortable enough to wear for long days on set (I often wear them for 12 hours or more at a time with only short breaks to prevent listening fatigue), durable enough to survive being sat on by a 300 pond grip (although I wouldn't recommend doing that on purpose), and the isolation is invaluable to hear just what your mics are hearing, without any outside distractions. Add in stellar customer service and a great warranty, and you have one seriously fine product, especially for the price point.

  • Best investment ever

    As reviewed by Curtis Boggs on 4/28/2011

    The phones are by far the best piece of equipment I've bought for my home studio. I have a home studio and record my drums right next to my computer, . . and always had a hard time getting a good mix. The drums would bleed through too much and I couldn't get a clean headphone mix, without blasting my ears off! These solved the problem, .. well worth the money I'd say!!

  • The best

    As reviewed by AluminumPancake on 10/7/2008

    These are the best noise canceling headphones I've ever used. I play drums and it cancels enough noise to not have the drumming overpowering your music through headphones (which means you don't have to blast it as loud as possible in your ears to hear your music clearly), but it doesn't cut it out so much that you can't clearly hear how your drums are fitting in with the music you are playing. These are more than worth the money. I recommend them to anybody, musician or not.
