Keeps the outside out and the inside in.

G-Evans, 30.04.2018
I bought these for being able to play along to music on my drum kit now that i have it setup in a soundproof location and can play away to my hearts content without bothering anyone.

having always been worried about being an annoyance to those around me playing the drums and also concerned with protecting my own hearing i have always worm hearing protection and in that area these do better than i thought they would. I can play as loud as i like and i can still hear the music i'm playing to.

I believe this may be helped by what is either a slight downside or intentional design. They seem to be lacking in bass. Everything sounding a bit higher and lacking any rumble. Possibly to allow the music to be heard better over the background noise of a well muffled drum kit. In terms of volume when plugged into devices like my phone they arent quite as loud as i would like. But plugged into a zoom h6 with a ntg2 recording audio they can be very loud. So i may just need to invest in a headphone amp for when using it with my phone.

as far as comfort goes i can stand to wear them for well over an hour of playing however having a big head they start to feel like they are pressing to much on the sides of my head and the padding on the part across the top of the head isn't great.

The cable for the audio jack is good quality, however each headphone has a cable coming out the top that seems way too thin and might be a liability over time.

Overall i'd say they are overpriced, probably down to the brand name. I did consider the t-bone brand sound isolation headphones that is around half the price. If i had to buy a second pair i would probably give them a try rather than pay such a price again for these.

also, a strange note, but the headphones dont have left and right on them anywhere that i can see. i know it doesn't exactly matter for listening to music but it seems like a strange oversight. If i ever use them for gaming it'd be a mild inconvenience.

Warning: may compress skull

I can't really complain about the sound of these headphones - I've used them whilst drumming, listening to music for my leisure, mixing and just as general purpose cans and they give a crisp and accurate sound.

As far as isolation goes, nothing comes in and nothing gets out - your ears are pretty much in an airlock when you put these things on which is both a blessing and a curse. The configuration of the headphones is such that, yes, you can adjust them a fair bit to suit your cranial requirements but, despite this, under all circumstances, you're likely to want to take these off after a good half hour.

You WILL get hot. You WILL get sweaty. You WILL get flustered and frustrated as your brain is slowly compressed under the mighty force of these headphones. I get that they need to be clamped to your head in order to isolate the listener but other sets of headphones achieve this without resorting to brute force and ignorance.

And this is what ruins the Vic Firth SIH 1's as the build quality is decent too - they're rugged and durable. In all the years I've had them I've yet to damage them... but this is probably down to lack of use. They are incredibly uncomfortable, hence why I would not recommend these headphones for any purpose other than crushing cars.
