Vic Firth has improved their stereo isolation headphones to increase the hearing protection for any venue. The new Stereo Isolation Headphones Version 2 (SiH2) features a redesigned larger driver in the ear cups that deliver a more powerful low end, cleaner mids and clear highs for a superior sound.
Overall noise levels are reduced by 25 decibels, so that music can be listened to and played along with at safe volume levels. And the improved padded headband creates a more comfortable fit, making them enjoyable to wear for extended periods of time. With the upgraded sound quality of these headphones, they are great for practicing, performing, or just listening to music in a loud environment.
Vic Firth has a long history in educating drummers about the potential long-term negative effects that high sound levels can have on musicians’ hearing. Prolonged exposure to the excessive levels of noise from instruments can cause hearing fatigue, tinnitus and permanent hearing loss.
