“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.”
