Product Description

The Direct Sound EX-25 25dB Extreme Isolation Headphones were invented by a studio session drummer because of the need for serious isolation! Not only are these great for home studios, stage and studio musicians, and anyone else who needs isolated sound, these headphones are found on film and video location sound sets the world over.

What makes them so extreme?

They use specially designed earmuffs that passively attenuate surrounding sound by a comfortable average of 28 decibels throughout the sound spectrum. With its custom fitted speaker assembly, the speakers are designed to protect your eardrums from damage and improve your recording and performance experience.

Who are they perfect for?

- Sound Engineers to monitor the mixer board during live performances while isolating their ears from main speakers.
- Stage and Studio Drummers who want to hear how drums are being mixed without having head-phones at high volume.
- Studio Musicians: Allowing you to hear only the studio mix during recording - eliminating costly return trips to the control room.
- Stadium and Dome Events: Listen to "LIVE" broadcasts at medium volume and block out most stadium noise while watching the game.
- NASCAR Scanners: Using an inexpensive stereo to mono plug, you can plug into your scanner and have the best isolation available to monitor the pit crews and driver.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (18 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Hear the Mix and Protect your Hearing"
Sound: I play electronic drums in a rock band with a guitarist who likes to turn it up to "11." Hearing the drums through the headphone jack on the drum brain was impossible UNTIL I got the EX-25 headphones. The isolation is good enough that I can actually turn DOWN the headphone volume so I can still hear the rest of the band. It also means I don't have to pound my sticks through the drums just to try to hear myself; it helps my technique. Feature: Well, the sound isolation IS the feature, but I also like the ability to replace individual parts, instead of having to replace the whole unit. (I haven't had to replace anything yet.) Ease of Use: The "Right is red" or "Red is right", referring to the red earcup having red foam inside, makes it easy to get the L and R channels right on your head. Quality: Seems well-made and durable. Manufacturer Support: I have needed no support, which is good. The Wow Factor: It's a good product, but I don't think consumers will put up a poster on it (unless there's a celebrity endorser, but I'd rather not have to pay extra for that.) Overall: I chose this product because it addressed my need for isolation headphones. The product stated isolation as its purpose and gave a db measurement. The company makes one model up from this one, but this "next to the top-of-the-line" model had a more attractive price for me.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
