I use these for tracking live drums. These do a fantastic job of keeping outside noise out when playing; even to the point where I have to have the drum kit signal fed into the monitor mix or I will even slide one ear partially off to get a little clarity on the cymbals.

Sound is great and you can hear everything very clearly and you don't even have to monitor at an unsafe level to do so.

I have used the brand that costs 3x as much as these, and while they sound fine, I do not feel they were noticeably better than these, certainly not worth the significant difference in cost. I also found those to be much less comfortable; my head felt like it was in a vice after wearing those for two hours. The CADs can still be a little heavy, as any isolation headphone generally is after prolonged use, but they are very manageable, they sound terrific, and the price cannot be beat. Highly recommend.

I was initially pleased with these headphones but I started to notice that they became uncomfortable after prolonged use. Also, the sound transmission has started to falter within, ballpark figure, 5 months- I'm hearing static noise sometimes when I touch the cord simply to move it. Furthermore, I take care of my equipment including these headphones. I have not subjected these to any rough treatment so it's a bit disappointing that they've started to falter so soon. As with anything else, you get what you pay for. My advice would be to shell out twice to three times as much for a more durable, more comfortable set of phones. It may seem odd that I would recommend these to a friend, but I bought them for a reasonable price, they've lasted 5 months, and they are not totally unusable yet. Just starting to develop those quirks. Cheers.

    Comments about CAD DH100 Drummer isolation headphones:

    I needed headphones for practicing drums that attenuated the outside noise (the drums) enough that the recorded music could be heard. These almost let in too much outside noise, and I maybe should have gone with one of the 25dB isolation models, but, at this price, 19dB is pretty good. Also, it is probably better to have a tad more drum sound coming in rather than totally playing by sense of feel. The sound quality seems fine, although an audiophile might argue that point. These certainly work better than most headphones I've used for drumming and you can't bet the price.

      Bought this for recording. Great isolation, so what I hear is what is coming through mics to the head phones, not the ambient room sound.

          Comments about CAD DH100 Drummer isolation headphones:

          As with most things, you get what you pay for. I was astonished at some of the other reviews about this product. Comfortable?? Wearing these headphones for just 5 minutes I feel like if I wear them much longer, I will develop cauliflower ears. After no more than 10 minutes I have to take them off. The plastic covering is cheap, the foam padding is practically non-existent, the frame is too rigid, i.e. they clamp down too tight on your head, they're bulky and cumbersome, the spiral telephone type cord is annoying and unnecessary, not to mention after a few short uses I am getting static from poor solder connections. There is literally nothing good I can say about this product. If you like to see money burn, then roll up your twenties and burn them, because that's what you'll be doing purchasing CAD DH100 headphones.

                WAY better than a similar pair I'd been using by Vic Firth for years. These keep out more outside noise, are more comfortable, and look better. As an added bonus, my drums actually sound amazing when I hear what sound bleeds though the headphones. they cut out a lot of the highs and these sweet, warm, low tomes are all thats left.

                  Comments about CAD DH100 Drummer isolation headphones:

                  I bought these for my studio. Drummers often have trouble getting enough isolation from standard headphones. They work great for that. They are a little snug, but I have a pretty big ole head. They do a very good job of isolating the external sound. They sound decent. They are not the best headphones I have ever heard, by any means, but they are very reasonbly priced and work fine for what they are described to do. The build quality is decent. My only concern is the cable running from the headphone cups to the headpiece. I will make sure to be careful with these headphones and I expect they will give me good service for a long time. A good value for the price.

                    These headphones block out ambient noise well. They are much louder than other headphones I own. They seem well built. The surround is not as plush as it should be so my ears are somewhat squashed. The cord is longer than 1 meter and its the curly kind. Look for something more comfortable!

                      I'm sure there are better drummer headphones out there, but not at this price. Some are HUGE, these are not as they have a rather "flat" profile, for headphones, anyway. They do a good job of reducing ambient sound, seemingly just enough to let you hear what you are doing clearly, but not so much that intricacies are blocked. All in all, a very good bang for the buck.
