hi guys. i was just wondering if you guys know of any headphones that have heavy sound isolation to them. the reason i inquire is because i record bands live and i need the drummer to be able to hear guitars that are mic'd in a different room over his own drums. currently im using normal headphones that do cover the ears with no holes but i have to crank these headphones way up to a distorting level just so the drummer can hear the guitar over the drums. what would you guys do in these situations? has anyone tried the studio kans headphones?

Nov 16, 2002 07:55 pm You could check out some of the "Metrophones" headphones. Our drummer uses a pair of those and they're real tight on your ears. He plays really loud when he has them on because he can't tell how loud he's playing at all :-)
Nov 17, 2002 02:08 pm go get some of thouse ear muff things that make it so you can't hear much when you have them on...like the things they wear in the shooting ranges...and then get some cheap head phones, the kind that fit in your ear. put the head phones in your ears and then the ear muff things over them

Nov 17, 2002 03:24 pm yeah i've tried that but i have problems keepign the small headphones in my ears, when i put my "builder's earmuffs" over they come out and are kinda uncomfortable, but they do the job i guess. its a pity that i can't see those kans in any stores in the UK, i'm looking for something similar. I'm looking on www.digitalvillage.co.uk and they have a lot of beyer, and Sennheiser headphones. Would anyone recomend any of these? i need closed back headphones for recording
