I purchased these headphones with the intention of using them to listen to music whilst drumming, for this they are perfect. They block out quite a bit of the outside noise letting your hear primarily the music.....I have even used them with a full band in a rehearsal studio where i was listening to a mix from the board and found them to excellent in this situation.

They do tend to be quite heavy with bass frequencies, but personally I tend to like this.

Comfort wise these are probably the most comfortable headphones I have owned. You can very easily wear them for extended periods with no discomfort. I wear glasses and can very comfortably wear these headphones with my glasses on..!

A side point....the pair i purchased came with a headband that has since been discontinued by the manufacturer because it to brittle and broke easily. I found this out very soon after purchase when the headband snapped easily. A quick google showed up this flaw and i returned the headband to Thomann who replaced it with the newer more flexible version and this hasn't caused any problems since.

Overall sound and comfort...... A

I have had two pairs of these and while they are very comfortable and provide good sound quality, the built quality has let them down though. With both pairs, the plastic that attaches to the pads has snapped which renders them almost useless. Shame about the built quality other wise I would still happily use them.

Good performance

These are solid mics for a drummer but their noise cancelling was not that strong compared t o the 990b thomann headphones. Sound was okay and so was the volume levels enabling you to listen to track while practicing with no problems.

The isolation properties are poor. Purchased the phones for a training session setup where these isolation phones would act as monitor for everything. Turns out the loud instruments drums, bass & guitars come through the isolation painfully; tried couple of sessions with crazy setup with ear plugs + extreme isolation. Other guys had Vic Firth and comparison conclusion is: Vic Firth isolates well but Extreme Isolation does not isolate. (the specifications say it should be the other way around almost 10dB in favour of E.I. but in reality not ...)
