For When You Need Articulate and Comfortable Closed-backs!
The "sound" solution for monitoring in any environment! Direct Sound EX-29 extreme isolation closed-back headphones are a great find for serious musicians and engineers, effectively solving common problems in the studio. First, the EX-29's highly padded ear cushions provide the ultimate in comfort for long tracking sessions while creating an extreme isolation fortress against pesky bleeds into your live microphones. High-fidelity 500mW input speakers reproduce articulate sound from 20Hz-20kHz, while a gold-plated 1/8" jack with screw-on 1/4" adapter lets you easily take your EX-29s on the road with your MP3 player.
The EX-29 closed-back headphones were developed expressly to isolate sound. Their specially designed ear cushions are comfortable for the listener, yet act as a superb barrier between the headphone's speakers and your live microphones. And while other headphones sometimes measure their noise-reduction capabilities at one specific frequency, the EX-29 headphones give you an average of 29dB of noise reduction over a wide frequency range. With a passive isolation average of 29dB, you don't have to worry about bleed ruining that perfect take.
While the EX-29 headphones are great for musicians in the studio, they also deliver crisp sound for the engineer when it comes time to mix. Pull on your pair and hear everything neatly reproduced from 20Hz-20kHz. 40mm drivers with 500mW input speakers were carefully designed for high-fidelity performance.
While many headphones deliver great sound, the level of comfort they offer is often the tipping point in determining whether they're really worth your investment or not. Sure, they sound great, but if you can't comfortably wear them for long sessions when it really counts, what's the point? When you want closed-back headphones designed with wearability in mind, look to the EX-29s. 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-29's long 9' cable lets you get ready to perform and monitor virtually anywhere in the studio.
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. The EX-29s save that time in the studio with their innovative "Red is Right" feature: the inside ear panel of the right channel is covered with bright red fabric. Just tell the musicians "Red is Right," and you can be sure they're hearing exactly the mix you've dialed in for them.
Sometimes you need excellent, isolated sound outside the studio - maybe when you're listening to your mix on your MP3 player to see how it translates, or when you want to listen to music or get some mixing done on the airplane. With the EX-29s, you don't need a second set of headphones for your 1/8" MP3 player jack. They come with a gold-plated 1/4" jack that screws on over the 1/8" jack, so you always have headphones handy for every device.Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones Features at a Glance:
