  • EX-29's are all I will use.

I have owned a pair of EX's for a long time now. These have only let me down once, when the headband broke. Just called the manufacturer, Direct Sound and they got it replaced FAST. They have a new Incrediflex headband too that will not break, so I never have to worry about that again. They had great customer service. Overall, the sound can't be beat. 29 dB of passive isolation and TruSound tonal accuracy... seriously, no other cans compare. If you are a drummer, they will also not bleed the click track. Score.

  • great drummers' phones

These have been great for me as drummer. I have used them in the recording studio and for practice. With some other types of headphones, there is not enough isolation when playing the drums, so I would have to turn up the click or backing track way up. With these isolation phones, the volume can be at a comfortable level because the drums don't bleed through as much. The sound quality is good and they don't get uncomfortable during longer sessions.

very happy with the performance of these headphones. I do a lot of recording in home studios and these have been a huge help in getting a good signal without having to blast my ears out to be heard over the drums. they have also worked well in situations where the engineer is in the same room, he wears a pair too. I have had a chance to use these live for monitoring and been very happy with the results. I can even plug them into my Ipod if I need to. Great Headphones!
