|No more headphone bleed! The EX-25 headphones from Direct Sound offer unbelievable isolation - you won't have the click track bleeding into your live microphones. Likewise, with the EX-25 Extreme Isolation headphones, drummers can actually hear the click track over the sound of their drums. These comfortable closed-type headphones are a great choice for your project studio, but they're also great for just listening to your iPod or for blocking out background noise when you travel - passive isolation means there are no batteries to replace. And while other headphones sometimes measure their noise-reduction capabilities at one specific frequency, the EX-25 headphones give you an average of 25dB of noise reduction over a wide frequency range. EX-25s features specially designed ear cushions, which are both comfortable and act as a superb barrier between the headphone's speakers and your live microphones. With the EX-25s, you don't have to worry about bleed ruining that perfect take.
Most professional headphones (EX-25s included) deliver great sound, so the level of comfort they offer is the real factor that determines whether they're really worth buying or not. After all, if you can't stand wearing them for long sessions, it doesn't matter how good they sound. When you want closed-back headphones designed with wearability in mind, look to the EX-25s. A padded and adjustable headband lets you position them in just the right place while heavily padded ear cushions cup over your ear, creating a closed-back chamber of sound. What's more, the EX-25's long nine foot cable lets you get ready to perform and monitor virtually anywhere in the studio.
Here's another cool thing about EX-25s. We've all had that fumbling moment when we've picked up a pair of headphones and scrutinized each side of them for the little "L" and "R" markings before we've put them on - not a big deal, but it can be annoying in dark environments. The EX-25s make it even easier. The inside ear panel of the right ear cup is covered with bright red fabric, easily distinguishable from the left side in even the dimmest environments. As long as you remember "Red is Right," you'll never accidentally put on a pair of EX-25s backwards.
