Product Description

Wearing headphones while you drum probably isn't your favorite thing, but when you've gotta, choose the Vic Firth SIH1 Isolation Headphones. They reduce outside noise by up to 24dB, which means you don't have to crank the volume as much as you do with other headphones. That means you can hear your mix better while also protecting your hearing. And because the SIH1 Isolation Headphones are made by the drum pros at Vic Firth, you know they're made to stand up to some abuse. So when you need to hear the rest of your band, you can count on the Vic Firth SIH1 Isolation Headphones.

I scanned through all the reviews and no one has mentioned that these things have a tendency to fail. I'm a drum teacher and I've personally owned 4 pairs of these and have had dozens of students buy these. When they work these headphones are great. They are much lower in price than other isolation headphones and the sound quality is acceptable. What is not acceptable is that the soft plastic that holds the foam earcups in place will eventually fail. What's worse is that the wires eventually become damaged and stop feeding sound to one or both speakers. Before they fail fully there are always a handful of months where the connections work intermittently, which is also quite frustrating.

As such I've searched extensively for an alternative that survives for a handful of years. My solution is to buy a pair of inexpensive isolation ear buds and a pair of job sight ear muffs. This setup has benefits:

1) The isolation is much much better! I can drum full blast with my ipod level set at a third of it's capacity and still hear the music clearly over the drumming.
2) Costs a lot less. JBud sells isolation headphones for $10, and I'm sure you could find an even better deal if you searched. The ear muffs can be purchased for $15 or less. Add these together and you're looking at paying less than half what you'd pay for these vic firth headphones.
3) If the headphones fail (and let's face it, eventually any wire will die), you only have to buy a new pair of headphones. Modular systems are the best!
4) This may seem obvious, but either the headphones or the earphones can be used on their own.

The downside is that properly inserting isolation headphones is a bit more time consuming and awkward than just slipping on the vic firth headphones. If the vic firths' didn't break down so often I would definitely be a fan. I hope this review is appreciated as I always use amazon reviews to get a sense of anything I'm considering buying.

I've loved these heaphones, and they still do the job very nicely after about 6 to 7 months. Here are some things I've learned:

Since the outside noise is greatly lessened, as advertised, they make the maximum volume for an ipod or mp3 player is lower than in regular ipod earbuds.

They grip to your head tightly, no matter what your head size. I got used to it quickly, though.

They don't cut out all noise, for sure, but they reduce the sharpness of any surrounding sound a lot.

The headphones come with a quarter inch adapter, which is very useful if you aren't just going to plug them into mp3 players and metronomes. They work nicely with amps and keyboards as well.

I have learned all these things from experience, and I hope you decide to invest in this product.
--God Bless!

Verified Purchase
I got this because I was never able to hear myself while recording drum tracks. The models I used before had a looped cord, like the one shown in the picture, which was a little too short. I finally decided to get my own about a month ago, and it didn't have a looped wire. It had a straight one, which is longer, so thats good.
While tracking with the headphones plugged into the laptop I wasn't able to hear myself properly. I was disappointed, but then i plugged it into the headphone input in my speakers which were connected to the laptop, and the result was fantastic. They're loud enough no matter how hard you play. I bet Dave Grohl would have a hard time hearing himself play if he turned these headphones on all the way up !
Thats why these are a must have for recording drums. Even if you use them to listen to music, no matter how much you turn the music up, no one will be able to tell what you're listening too. If you have issues with volume, then these are great. Cancels outside noise, prevents your music from being audible on the outside, and so on.
Build wise, they're sturdy. They look heavy duty. The ones I've used before have never cracked anywhere. That's good if you use these in a studio, musicians often tend to be pretty careless.
Comfort varies from person to person. Some people can wear these for hours without tiring. Some people can't. My right ear starts hurting after excessive use, but i think it depends on ear size, personal preference, and a lot of other factors. When you put these on, you can feel a vacuum being made. They really do put you in your own audio world.
However, the quality isn't fantastic. The reason i gave it 5 stars is because I didn't buy these for sound quality.

These things are awsome! They kill the drums sound down to a low volume and really save your ears from the beating they take without ear plugs. They will enable you to play for hours without making your ears tired and being able to put music thru them is awsome. I used to have to play music ridiclusly loud through my main speaker system. Now i just plug these in to my computer and hear the music clearly and still hear my drums. Definetly a must buy for any drummer.
