Default VicFirth HeadPhones - modified

If your getting like me not wanting to spend more money on gear that should last much longer, I tried the following to the isolation headphones. Had nothing to lose by trying.

what you need:

1. apple earplugs or any small ear plug
2. velcro

Procedure is simple:
1. apply the velcro to the inside of each vic firth ear piece.
2. apply the mating velcro piece to the ear plug.
3. attach the earplug to the vic firth ear piece. Just try to make the ear plug line up with the opening of your ear canal (ie, how the earplug would normally be used).

That's it. Plug your earplugs in, and now you have your sound and isolation.

Works great!!

Use your iPhone ear buds, then buy a 10.00 pair of safety/shooting ears from Home Depot/ Sporting goods store and you are set to go.
