The Vic Firth SIH2 Stereo Isolation Headphones are designed to protect musicians from the high sound levels associated with their instruments. These headphones are particularly suited to drummers in live situations. They can also be used for playing along with recorded music at safe sound levels. The headphones terminate with a 3.5mm mini-jack connector, though a 1/4" plug is also provided.
These headphones can reduce the overall noise level by up to 25 dB. Compared to the previous model—the SIH 1—these headphones feature larger, 50mm dynamic drivers that produce a stronger low end, a more precise midrange, and clearer highs. You also get a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The headband has also been improved, as it is now padded.
