Have you ever sat down at a crappy, taped-together drum kit and actually felt yourself playing worse because of how bad the kit sounded? It happens because the sound of your drums affects your playing. Well, imagine how you might play on a drum kit that sounded perfectly tuned and eq'd. The DB22s have that exact effect on your drumming.When I put the DB22s on, my live drumming sounded like a great recording that was eq'd and compressed. I realized that this completely changed the way I approached my kit. Everything sounded great so I actually PLAYED BETTER when I had them on. It took me one practice session with these things to fall in love. It's helped my tempo and technique so much during practice that I'm seriously throwing around the idea of wearing them DURING SHOWS... That is, if my vocalist lets me.For a full-band practice, the "eq'd kit" effect does not get lost completely during loud rocking, but don't expect the entire band to sound as good as the solo drums did through these things. I use them for rehearsals so that I can hear myself better but I've noticed that, compared to a rehearsal with no noise reduction of any kind on/in my head, I can now hear my bassist ten-fold and my lead guitarist just barely enough for it not to be a problem. The DB22s do not offer the same amount of reduction for every frequency like a pair of $100 custom fitted ear-plugs but they sure do the job of making your drums sound awesome in your ears. Equal priced ear-plug solutions for drummers are garbage when compared to the DB22s. When you hear better, you play better. So get 'em.

These are literally standard Peltor earmuffs you can find at any home improvement store, and for less money. You can see the Peltor logo molded into the earcups. The Vic Firth logo is simply silk-screened (or some other method) over it.These earmuffs are not designed for playing music. The attenuation is far too quiet, and is non-linear, meaning that some frequencies are blocked out more than others which creates an un-natural sound. You are much better off buying a pair of musicians' earplugs.Having said that, if you play in an extremely loud band, you might want to consider the pair that is sold at [@] or [@], which is exactly the same as these, but for a little less cash.

Can't say enough great things about this headset!!!

By dudeman

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

After years of bleeding ears (not literally), I read the reviews and bought these headphones to use with my new Tama Silverstars. All I can say is.. OMG!! They blow me away every time I play. They make your kit sound like you're sitting in a studio playing on Mike Portnoy's drum kit. I'm not kidding you! I don't know how... but they make drums sound absolutely incredible. The tone comes through great!! But at way lover volume levels. The way they make your drums sound is reason enough to buy these. The ear protection is just a bonus! Trust me! I'm gonna get a couple more pairs for the kids and will let them play in the basement while I jam. I've noticed my kids jam on my kit way more often now that they can use this headset! GET EM'!

This isolation headset is incredible!

By dudeman

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

The first time I put this headset on and played around my set for a few seconds, I knew I made a great choice. This set brings the volume WAY WAY down, but still somehow now only keeps the tone of my drum kit more even, it seems to IMPROVE the tone (and they have great tone already!). I quite frankly can't believe I'm not already totally deaf. I swear. After playing for around 30 minutes, I had to go do other stuff, and took the headset off and played for a few seconds and thought to myself... OMG.... what have I been putting my ears throuh all these years!!!! I let my 12 year old try them on and jam (he doesn't really play that much)... and he played for a good 15 minutes! All because he had more fun (instead of suffering ear pain!). These are awesome and I would buy them again for sure!!!
I guess this headset has only one feature. But it works most excellently!!
They appear well built and have some meat to them. They're not uncomfortable. They are tight-fitting, but that's just how they have to be to do their job... which they do VERY well.
For the price, this headset can not be beat.

I though i was deaf...

By bassman 420

from IL chigcago

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

these are amazing! i used my friends and i cant hear a thing with them on! so relaxing in the empty quit. only reason for low rating in quality is because the black part that goes on top of your head seems kinda cheap. besides that they rock.

These things are NICE!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

I just got these a few days ago. My ears have been ringing after I play because of horrible acoustics in my basement. So i needed something to protect my ears. These things worked really well. They didn't completley block out the sound so I could hear what I was doing and my ears stopping ringing so hopefully these will protect my ears for a long time. They do mak your set sound a little funny. te toms sond better, but the snare is not as crisp. The acual color isn't blue but is black.

My ears are still in tact after 10 years

By RogueDeals

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

I've been playing for 10+ years now, bought these a long time ago 6+ yrs ago and they still are in mint condition. They fit comfortably though you'll get a bit hot if you are really playing like a mad man. They still allow the drums to come through, so it is still very enjoyable to play. The are one solid product and best of all I still can hear.If you play along with music, I suggest buying the electronic ones, but these are an affordable option if you are practicing solos, beats, etc.

This Thing Is Essential

By Drummerboy490

from Allentown, PA

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

These headphones will totally prevent any drummer or guitarist from having to wear hearing aids when they're 30. They drastically reduce the volume of your drums (to your ears, not everyone else near you) up to 30db, plus they're very comfortable, and light. Unlike written in some other reviews, they don't make your drums sound boomy, like some other sound isolation headphones do, but they do give your drums extra warmth and punch (just the way I like it). Every drummer needs to get these headphones for practice. They make me play better also. And they look much cooler than in the picture. They're actually shiny black and the writting on the side looks cooler. The head-part-thing can be pulled out to be adjusted to the size of your head. Just don't be afraid it will break, because it wont. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE! Thanks for saving my ears Vic Firth. I love Vic Firth sticks too, and I won't play any other brand of sticks.

Fits my 2-year old son's head - works great

By rglaue

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headset:

I bought these for my 2-year old (27 months) son last week to protect his ears while practicing the drums. Because many pros use this Vic Firth dB22 Isolation Headphones. The pros I talked to said this is one of the best you can get.At the shortest adjustment, it fits my 2-year old son's head very well. I was worried it would be too big, but it is a very good fit.It looks cool and he is starting to like it. He has been able to put it on by himself with some practice over the past week. Hopefully in time he will keep them on all the time.
