ddrum tells us that they have entered the headphone arena with the new ddrum Studio Class Isolation Headphones. They say that, inspired by drummers but designed for all musicians, these headphones fit comfortably around the ears to provide 36 dB of passive sound isolation.
A spokesperson told us, "While the headphones help reduce external volumes of other instruments, their internal speakers can deliver a well-balanced mix so players don't miss a beat. Suitable for various genres and styles, ddrum Studio Class Isolation Headphones are a professional-grade solution every musician should have in their gig bag."
Here's more details directly from ddrum...
Musicians know that low-quality headphones or earbuds can harm their ears over an extended period of use. Without proper isolation technology, ordinary headphones lack balance and clarity, making it difficult to hear the dynamics of surrounding instruments and/or the mix. Plus, regular headphones or earbuds may not fit as well, leaving players to fill in the gaps of missing sound. ddrum Studio Class Isolation Headphones solve these common challenges with technology, comfort, and style.
Proudly made in the U.S., ddrum Studio Class Isolation Headphones offer high precision audio (HPA) through 40 mm closed back speakers that extend frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hz with 32 ohm impedance, providing excellent definition from bass to treble. Further proving their capability, the headphone speakers deliver a thunderous 114 dB at 1 KHz 1 mW sensitivity when maxed out. They can also be hooked up to high-output rigs, with a 1000 mW input power rating. The detachable 8-foot cable extension affords players freedom where needed, whether in the studio or on stage.
ddrum Studio Class Isolation Headphones weigh a comfortable 11.5 ounces and adjust easily for size with a padded black cushion that wraps around the top of the headband. The ear cushions are also padded with soft, black foam and rotate freely away from the headband for a snug fit. The headphones are available in black or white with ddrum's red insignia on the closed back.
Led by CEO Evan Rubinson, ddrum is a musician-run enterprise, having worked with some of the biggest names in the industry on the biggest stages and in the best studios all over the world.
