Direct Sound EX-25 overview

  • 1Description

The EX-25 Extreme Isolation Headphones from Direct Sound provide great sound quality in a comfortable design that blocks out a large amount of external noise. Designed in a similar fashion to noise-isolating earmuffs, these heavy-duty headphones use custom speaker assemblies designed to protect your eardrums. The speakers reside inside closed-back earcups with thick padding that effectively reduce external noise by up to 25dB.

Ideal for use by live mixers who need to block out monitor speakers, or by drummers who need to be able to hear the mix without setting their volume at an unreasonably high level, the EX-25 is a perfect professional tool. It provides a long cable for plenty of slack. The 3.5mm mini plug and gold-plated 1/4" adapter ensure that you'll be able to listen to any consumer or professional-grade audio device.

    Direct Sound EX-25 reviews

    EX-25 Extreme Isolation Stereo Headphones is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Passive noise isolation 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best by far. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item. 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite These headphones didn't quite have as much rejection as I was hoping for. The sound was fine and they seem durable enough, but the rejection was a bit disappointing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe and clear 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I thought for that price that the voice would not be as clear as it is ! I worked with more expansive headphones and some did not equal that quality. very good sound barrier, even near an airport, perfect for ENG, documentaries

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of Bang for the Buck In live production environments it allows my sound person to truly hear what is being performed without live ambient and reflective sound interfering.
