Excerpt: Last week we made a short film in a glass factory. Sometimes you do not realize the amount of background noise from the microphones or ears. With this amount of attenuation is easy to recognize the reality of what you are recording. The red color is very useful for put them properly. I just ordered one more. Four stars just because I would have liked to have coiled cable.
Excerpt: This is my second pair after a mishap with my first one. I like the comfort of these and the isolation they provide while recording a live band. Helps with the balance everything out without having to hear other distractions.
Excerpt: My wife and I are musicians, both french horn players. We live in a small apartment, we use them to listen to music in the bedroom of our apartment (there is no door)while the other practices in the living room. Works pretty well when one of us is playing fortissimo! Does not cut out all sound but it is a VERY good value. The sound quality is not great but as I said, I find this to be a great value!
Excerpt: Nice alternative to electronic noise-canceling headphones, these passive noise isolation headphones provide more natural sound. Over-ear design. Not as comfortable to wear as some others, however. Might be worthwhile to spend a little more and go for the Sony MDR-7506, which don't isolate as much, but provide superior sound. If noise isolation is key, these are better, however, if sound quality is key, the Sony MDR-7506 can't be beat.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones to wear while mowing the lawn. They make a noticeable difference, they block out much of the mower's engine and allow you to listen to music at a lower noise level. Thus protecting your hearing. They are comfortable but a little larger than I like to wear in public.
