Vic Firth Isolation Headphones


Well-known member
Just purchased the DB22's and all I have to say is wow. I started out by using workshop headphones but the drums sounded terrible and muffled I couldnt stand it. I ended up blasting music into my Apple ear buds as I played along to songs. Needless to say not good for the ears. Just tried out the cheaper Vic Firth headphones and they are great. Slight muffled sound but for the most part it sounds more like turning down the kit volume. Now I can play music through my ear buds at very low volume.

Q: I was thinking I might use these during rehearsals with band but I have a feeling it would be hard to hear everyone else. We don't have a mixer so in-ear monitor is out. What do others use to protect their ears but still be able to hear the rest of the band?
