Proper protection with headphones as reverse, but still good!

feedot, 26.11.2010
Short classification: I use the EX-29 as an ear protection on the drums, have the kit in the mix on the headphones or use it for recordings.

As a pure hearing protection the EX-29 is good, although I would have expected the insulation even more strongly compared to my AKG 271, which I have often used live. Maybe my ears are just not quite up to date. Good on the EX-29 is the quite even lowering of the volume over basses, mids and highs. Although a slight bass concretion prevails, the heights of the basins are still well represented. The hifi qualities are good, but not outstanding. This is by no means the only thing that comes from the speakers. On the contrary, one can also use it to listen to music on the sofa and is isolated from the outside world. Compared to my AKG 271 benchmark, however, there are very clear deductions.

The wearing comfort must presumably suffer a little, because the mass of absorption has to go somewhere: on the head. However, the EX-29 is not excessively heavy. He sits right up tight and the rubber pads do her other thing that you have to drop the part from time to time to air the ears and relax the ear shells. Velor pads would be a significant improvement here. Also, the headphone has probably only a position, in which it optimally insulates. When it slips backwards, the insulation opens slightly and the good effect is partially lost.

The length of each speaker cable must be improved before they are merged. If the cable is in front of the body, the "cable loop" in front of the chin is sufficiently large. In order to let the cables hang behind her back (a necessity for drummers) she is too tight and she is disturbed by the neck.

The processing is not overly great (sweet way: assembled in USA, haha). The temple width is equipped with a simple grid. One side of it sits bomb-proof, the other sits loosely. The head cushion also slides slightly. There is certainly something to improve without doubling the price. Very positive: the headphone can be compacted quite compact for transport.

Conclusion: The price / performance ratio is good, the EX-29 is without a recommendation for Drummer, even if you can not expect a top product overall. The good insulation, which decreases the volume quite evenly over all frequencies, ensures a pleasant drumming sound when used as a pure hearing protection. The headphone function as a monitor when recording or while practicing with Click in conjunction with quite high outside sound damping is worth a purchase recommendation. All in all, there is still a lot of room for improvement, which is why for me is not yet the ideal drum headphone. Therefore only 3 of 5 points!

Absolute purchase recommendation

Stefanie aus B., 23.11.2012
I had the problem so far, that I only listened to my drums while practicing a song, although I had turned my head up to the limit. That's why I bought the Extreme Isolation EX-29 and would definitely recommend it - but not for pure hearing protection.

One takes with the headphones its surroundings still quite true. When I put the headphones on and snips with my fingers I hear the synonymous. Therefore I had before the first play then also concerns that I would again have the same problem and while practicing the music with the new headphones do not listen. But that was not the case. The headphones attenuate the noise in the surroundings perfectly without completely eliminating all the noises. I just plug the headphones to my mp3 player or the metronome and then can easily play the song. I need to adjust my mp3 player to full volume, but do not find that too loud - especially since I use the headphones only for playalongs and when I play with metronome. Unlike my mp3 player a really expensive well-known brand, you can hear a good metronome clearly even without going to the volume limit.

As a pure hearing protection, the headphones can not recommend, because they dampen the volume really well, but intensified bass sounds pass through, which in the long run can be a very nice strain on the ears and with me has already led to headaches. As an ear protection I use in-ear-plugs, which I had before and with which I was always satisfied (and which are also cheaper).

With the wear comfort, sound and the processing I am completely satisfied.

There are certainly (more expensive) alternatives, which are also suitable as hearing protection, but at the price I can highly recommend the Extreme Isolation EX-29!
