I'm not a drummer - I'm a guitarist / home recording enthusiast. I bought these headphones to keep the click track from bleeding through and getting picked up by my mics when recording my Martin acoustic. For that purpose, these are perfect! Very good isolation (see video). Cord is only 6 feet long, not 12.5 feet. Long enough for me, but not what description says. Bass is so-so, but good enough for monitoring my recordings.

I got these same head phones a couple of years ago, they where great head phone, I used them for playing drums and I was more then satisfied with them. but they finally gave out, so I decided I would buy another pair, I got them and they sounded like junk! practically all the low end was gone from them. because the low end was gone it made it very difficult to hear what the drum track in the song was while playing to it.
I decided to fix up my old pair to compare, there was a world of difference! these head phones sound distant and lack bass, while the older copy made for a great blend and a high presence. Its the same price as the old pair only now its audio quality is allot worse.

Comments about Vic Firth SIH1 Isolation Headphones:

great for isolation, but not at all durable. left channel dies on every pair - often quickly. sometimes resoldering can fix, but buy the extended warranty.

    JUNK, Gone through 2 of these within 2 years.

      • Flimsy Construction
      • Poor Sound

      Best Uses

        Comments about Vic Firth SIH1 Isolation Headphones:

        The speakers distort BAD with any bass. Finally an entire side went out.
        Bought GC's pro coverage for 2 years, they went out after a year (2nd pair within 2 years), now I have to ship them back and I lose the other year of coverage I paid for. Because these things are such bad quality, I thought pro coverage would help, but actually after 3 bought pairs, the amount I would spend on pro coverage is a whole new set.
        Don't waste your time or money! These are JUNK!!!!

        For it price, it's okay. It isolates sound well, but the quality of the monitoring is not that great. But you get what you pay for...
        Low frequencies especially, come out muddy...
