Product Description

Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation™ Headphones
Professional musicians and studio engineers choose the EX-29 isolation headphones for critical monitoring of their work. Featuring TruSound™ Tonal Accuracy technology, the ultra-fidelity high input speakers will not bleed click tracks or pre-recorded music into live microphones! The EX-29 has an NRR of 29 db (36.7 dB max!) of eco-friendly natural passive isolation which makes them the perfect choice for sound and studio work. In addition, the EX-29 has a padded, adjustable IncrediFlex™ headband for hours of comfort without fatigue.

Quality
What makes them extreme? Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation headphones were invented by a prominent studio session drummer. They use specially designed earmuffs that passively isolate surrounding by up to 36.7 decibels and custom fitted high quality speaker assembly. (See Specifications below) Because of the extreme surrounding sound isolation, it is only necessary to use the headphones and medium to low volume. This in turn, protects your precious eardrums from permanent hearing loss. As a drummer, the designer was able to practice music better or hear a studio mix better and still hear the drums and feel the natural strike against the drum heads. He could mix his own drums next to the multi-track in the same room!

Comfort
Extreme Isolation headphone’s ear cushion design, the shape of their headphone enclosure and and headband design are the key factors involved for the proper amount of isolation and play a huge role in why they have serious isolation and comfort. They have the lightest weight, comfortable and affordable headphones ever designed, that can be worn for long periods without fatigue. Extreme Isolation headphones do not use a single heavy coiled cord, because it tends to interfere with your ease of movement and could cause discomfort and fatigue; it would be similar to having a leash tied to one side of your head while you are performing. The right ear felt is bright red to easily identify the right speaker in dim light. The headphones are very durable and sturdy. For convenience, ¼ gold-plated jack adaptor and adaptor keeper are also included.

Applications

    For Sound Engineers – To monitor the mixer board during live performances while isolating their ears from the main speakers.

    For Stage and Studio Drummers – Who want to hear how drums are being mixed with having headphones turned to a 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 while watching the game.

    For NASCAR Scanners – By using inexpensive stereo to mono plug, you can plug into your scanner and have the best isolation available to monitor the pit crews and driver.

Testimonials
    I used the Extreme Isolation headphones for the entire North American Megadeth - Blackmail the Universe tour, to which I found them to be completely top notch!!!!!! I was able to hear what I wanted in my headphones at a very comfortable volume, thus having no harsh effect on my ears whatsoever!!!!! I would highly recommend this product to anybody in both a studio or live setting!!!!!!
    -Shawn Drover, Megadeth

    I was using the Extreme Isolation Headphones in the studio, recording our latest album Doomsday Machine ... They are both comfortable and isolate good enough to get separation from the acoustic drum sound, this allows you to have the mix at a lower more listenable level, which every drummer knows is a good thing!
    -Daniel Erlandsson, Arch Enemy
