I've been using these headphones for about two weeks now and they impress me. They don't go very loud but keep in mind that they don't need to because all ambient noise is cut by 24 decibels. Very good for drumming (ear protection), on stage perfomance, or just listening to your music and removing all that noise you don't want to listen to.

We play every weekend and I wanted to do away with lugging around a big monitor, so I invested in this. For live performance I get ok volume(would love to have more), the clarity is good, the mix is good. We have seven instruments and it doesn't pick them all up. I've only had them 3 weeks and the connectors have already gone bad!!!! So don't expect much there!

Vic Firth Gets A Bad Name

By Joe

from Colliers WV

Well these are sound isolating....in all ways!!! When I first got into recording 6 years ago I purchased these for my drum room, I never gave a thought to Vic Firth putting out a miserable product, the sound was incorrigible. I quickly proceeded to switching out mics, mixers, heads...everything only to accidentally trying out a pair of Yamaha RH5MA's,that I purchaced for general monitoring, although the RH5MA's are not an isolation style headphone I imminently became aware that the Vic Firth product was complete junk. I mean these Yamaha can are only 60 bucks not exactly high end money... I use Shure SE215's for drumming live, they are durable and sound great..although there is a learning curve.

Great Audio, But Not Good For Long Sessions

By Kyle

from San Diego, CA

These are great headphones, and work like a tank. I've beat them up so much using them for drumming and mixing and they still sound just as good as the day I bought them, which was quite a few years ago. But the sucky part is (and ironically, what helps them isolate so well) they're so tight they hurt my ears and give me a headache. If the cups were just a little bigger this wouldn't be a problem. Maybe I just have big ears, but after a while the cartilage in my ears starts to get crushed, hot, and painful wearing these. Almost like I just got done with a couple wrestling matches. For fear of cauliflower ears, I've given these to a younger brother and swapped them for some Yamahas. His ears are smaller, and they work just fine for him.

Very Good

By Isaac

from Houston, TX

I would say for 60.00, these really do the job. I mean, a little expensive, considering that you can buy average headphones cheaper, but these give you that extra protection all drummers need. The comfort is amazing, and the weight isn't too bad either. I would say these are worth the buy, if you really like drums.

Fabulous temporarily

By jack share

from MA

Indeed...the headphones sound great and are priced right, but they're flawed. You'll quickly get earlobe fatigue and discomfort because of their tightness. But worse - one ear crackled after using it two months and then died completely. If you're looking for headphones that are painful to wear and lost two months, definitely get them!

Consistently Terrible-On my 4th set of these junk headphones

By David Bellimer

from Bellows Falls, Vermont

Well...I purchased my original set for recording drums..broke within 2 weeks..no trauma..they hang on a hook untouched...One side just stopped working..call GC and they had me send them back to Vic...Received another pair...One side died..after a short 3 days of use..Used my warranty sent them back...Said screw it I need to have monitors..Decided to buy 2 pairs so I had a spare when recording. One set out of the box was crackling so bad I repacked them in the box..Used the other pair for 2 weeks...One side died. Bought some AKG headphones..been working fine for months and months..no problems..STAY AWAY FROM THESE...JUNK...

Not for me...

By Alex Jones

from mill creek, WA

These headphones have a very nice build, and you feel like you will never break them at any point. But, the drivers are VERY treble-ey and have virtually no bass. They are good for jamming on the drums for about five minutes before you start to feel your ears pulsating because they are so mind-bendingly tight. I returned mine mainly because they hurt my ears like hell after a few songs of jamming. They look good and have a good build, but don't live up to my expectations of casual listening and drumming with them on. Overall, not very pleased. Was expecting much more. Oh well.

Very useful!

By Kimberlie Fixx

from Ohio

I originally bought these to use with my electronic drumset. I wanted headphones which provided good sound but also blocked out most of the noise from hitting the pads. They work perfectly for this! If you need electronic drumming headphones, boom, here you go. They ALSO work great for listening to music in noisy environments or when you just want some quiet. They don't have mind-blowing bass, but they're well balanced across the sound spectrum. Overall, one of the musical purchases I'm most satisfied with.

Great for drumming!

By Rob Krucek

from Highland, Indiana

I play both acoustic and electronic drums and these work great with both playing to CDs or monitoring midi programs. I am currently using them to listen to mp3 music on my ipad2 and they isolate the music great (no outside noise interference). Highly recommend these headphones for drummers. The fit is snug and I have been wearing the phones with glasses with no problems with comfort.

Certainly the best for a drummer!

By Nathanael Paulson

from Unknown

I dont know why people are giving these headphones bad reviews. They must be high maintenance people, or something. If you like to play drums along with music or listen to music while you're mowing the lawn, these are the headphones are for you. They are just basic ear mufflers with headphones built in. If you want to use them for editing/mastering music or just listening to music, these aren't for you. While playing drums, I've learned that if you take one earphone 1/4 of the way off, you can hear more treble and low-end from your drum set. Very useful!
