"I’ve been using those headphones for a few years now and love them, my whole band used them for my latest recording. I do my practicing at night so I put the headphones on while I’m playing along with a cd. I’m getting into it because I’m not hearing myself bang on the congas, it’s more of a feel that comes from within. Those headphones really do it for me!!"
“I have been an endorser and big fan of Direct Sound headphones for several years. I've used them on recording sessions all over the Los Angeles area. They isolate my ears and protect them from loud rimshots and cymbal crashes. The sound quality of the tracks coming through is fantastic. They are very high-quality headphones that I've also used to listen to music through different devices as well. I'm honored to be part of the team.”
“Direct sound headphones are absolutely essential gear for me. I never play drums without them!! Whether it’s recording, teaching, practicing or playing on stage for 65,000 screening fans, Direct Sound headphones are protecting my hearing and delivering high fidelity sound!”

“The EX-29s are the de-facto standard headphone we use at Cinema Sound. Not only are they the flattest and most true form of headphone sound reproduction for mixing in either stereo or ambisonic environments, but they also have an incredible rejection of outside noise. They’re always our first suggestion.”
(Chaka Khan, Brenda Russell, Moby, Deniece Williams)
“I’m a proud endorser of DIRECT SOUND. They've played a pivotal roll in my development as an artist. Their products are reliable, sound great, and they keep coming out with new innovations - they haven’t stopped surprising me yet! I use several versions of their headphones both to practice drums as well as record. The sound isolation and hearing protection is industry standard. Their EXTW37 bluetooth headphones are my favorites! Finally, this is one of those relationships, where, as an endorser, I’ve also become close friends with the owners, who I admire greatly both re their work ethic, and their sense of community.”
"I have been using Direct Sound headphones for a decade. They are the best! I love the EX-25's!"

"Love my EX29 headphone. I use them in the studio all the time. They’re very comfortable and the sound quality and isolation is fabulous. I’ve never had any problems with the headphone cable shorting out, very durable. I also have a pair of Studio Plus headphones that I use for mixing, they sound great! Thank you Direct Sound!"
