Overview

Direct Sound EX-25 headphones are the only headphones on the planet that have dynamic closed-back speakers within a closed back isolation chamber. Maybe that's what gives EX-25's extreme isolation.

EX-25 extreme isolation headphones applications:
For sound engineers to monitor the mixer board during live performances while isolating their ears from main speakers.

For stage and studio drummers who want to hear how drums are being mixed without having headphones at high volume.

Allows studio musicians to hear only the studio mix during recording - eliminating costly return trips to the control room.

For stadium and dome events-listen to live broadcasts at medium volume and block out most stadium noise listening to the show or game.

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    We use to mix live sound for tv broadcast during worship services. We are in the main worship room so ambient noise has been a big issue. These are great for sound idolizations. Much better than our pro sennheiser headphones we have been using. My guys love them.

    Loud yet quiet

    By TYRUS PROFFER

    from Pueblo, Colorado

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    These headphones are simply amazing, I didn't purchase mine from guitar center but this is the cheapest place i'v found anywhere. The Ex-25's. They are amazing you dont even have to be listening to music to block out sounds, I needed noise canceling head protection to practice with my drummer in the basement and I knew I was going to need some soon. These are perfect, when you crank up the volume it's like your attending a judast priest concert in the front row. They provide tons of bass middle and treble and I was blown away that its not active noise canceling but complete isolation, your not gonna find a better pair for the price, trust me I already tried.

    Amazing Isolation, Great Sound

    By Stephanie Medlin

    from Washington D.C.

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    I have owned a pair of the EX-25's for a while now. When I did first receive them, I did have trouble with the headband. I called Direct Sound to let them know they broke, and they immediately sent out a replacement Incrediflex headband, which can take a beating. It will not break! I also did not have to pay for the headband or shipping, which was nice. I use these for mixing and traveling. I have compared other headphones and none stack up, especially now that the headband is fixed. I also love that these are 100% repairable with household tools, so I don't have to solder anything or buy a new pair completely!

    Great product...even better support

    By CRPenington

    from Cave Creek,AZ

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    Like many others, I also had a problem with the headband. I contacted the company, and the inventor of Extreme Headphones promptly responded and sent a replacement headband...no worries, no hassels. When a company provides convenient, effective support for their product, that adds value to an already exceptional product. The EX-25 headphones are lightweight, comfortable and stay secure during any headbanging that may occur while jamming. The sound isolation really lets me hear just what I want to hear more clearly. Finally, and most importantly, I'm very satisfied with the sound quality delivered by my Ex-25 headphones...a tremendous value at a very affordable price.

    Must have Headphones

    By Jason Hearn

    from Myrtle Beach, S.C.

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    I had a pair of the original Extreme isolation headphones which worked great. They were comfortable, fitting snugly on my head and most of all, dramaticly reduced the volume of my drumming , allowing me to play along to my music. The glue holding on the padding around the ears was not that strong and after time and much sweating, the padding would come off. They snapped one day whilst simply putting them on my head. I hope the new design is made with a more durable and flexible plastic. I've had the new ones for several weeks, and all is good so far. They are more comfortable than the previous model and now have a screw on quarter inch jack

    By jeepnbassman

    from Westminster, CO

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    Use these for live performances where I need a little help hearing what I'm doing. Sound isolation and comfort are good. Had a problem with the headband which was quickly resolved by the company.

    Great Product, Incredible Support

    By Bryce Taylor-Vaisey

    from ON

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    I've purchased a number of pairs for our school's recording facility, and the students and instructors have responded with nothing but great feedback. This is the best solution for eliminating bleed while giving artists the 'more me' they so frequently demand. And when the headbands on some pairs snapped due to poor plastic quality, I received a reply to my email within an hour and sent replacement headbands to cover every pair I have...for free! Stellar quality with unbelievable customer support!

    Great headphone

    By Dustin

    from Fort Wayne, IN

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    These headphones are great, and equally comparable to Vic Firth isolation headphones. All it takes is getting used to some low end overtones that still are audible. If you mic the drums, this is a great way to practice. The tone and quality of the drums can be audible, at half the volume without headphones. Highly recommended.

    Great Isolation

    By Bill

    from Berkeley, CA

    Comments about Direct Sound EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones:

    The EX-25s are pretty close to the "extreme isolation" of their name. I've mixed music on my laptop at reasonably low volume while in crowded noisy cafes with little outside sounds creeping in. The sound quality in the EX-25s is adequate, not great. They could use a little more on the high end.
