Hear what you've been missing!You know what sucks? Not being able to hear what you're doing. Whether you're the performer or the engineer, hearing what you're doing — or the lack thereof — is the number one problem in virtually any live or studio setting. If you can't hear, how are you going to place the mics or hear what you're supposed to be playing to. Designed for drummers and engineers — but great for any musician — the Direct Sound Extreme Isolation EX-29 headphones block out all that bothersome room noise so you can hear what you need to hear.
We've put these bad boys through their paces and we are very impressed! Miking a kick drum is a lot of trial and error, but with EX-29s on you can get right down on it. Like uncomfortably knock-your-head-off close. But you can hear exactly what you you're doing with the mic, and at a reasonable listening volume. The same holds true for miking cabinets: slap on a pair of EX-29s and listen for the sweet spot.
So how do they do what they do? It's a special combination of design and execution. The super-comfortable padded earcups block out an amazing 29dB of sound, creating an impenetrable fortress of protection from external noise. Couple that with the full-range sound reproduction and low impedance design, and you get crystal clear sound at a reasonable volume.
Drummers, you'll love the EX-29s. Imagine being able to hear everything that's going on in the mix — along with yourself — so you can always come in on time. Playing with the EX-29s on is an eye (or ear?)-opening experience. The mix is clear and strong, making playing along easier than ever. And the EX-29s are great for MP3 players too!
