This pair of headphones is overall a great one, and I have specifically found them very useful for recording drummers. I've been using these for a couple of years. Probably one of their best features is the degree of isolation they provide. When recording a drummer, you need to get enough isolation so that they can hear the click track and/or music track/other musicians above the huge volume of their own drum set. These closed ear phones go on your head very tight, so that you can get a drummer to hear what they need to without necessarily blowing out their eardrums with huge volumes. The downside to this great isolotion is that they are not as comfortable as other headphones. Since they're tight on your head, they can get rather uncomfortable after wearing them for a while.

The other downside to the isolation is that singers will often not like it, because it will start to sound like they are listening to their voice come from somewhere else, instead of hearing themselves sing, which can be distracting. Taking one ear cup off can help this, however. The overall sound quality is quite good - the bass is better than you find on most headphones and all the other frequencies are well represented. They are also fairly durable - they are made from a thick plastic so these will be hard to break. They come with a 1/4" adapter which is nice and sometimes essential to have. So these may not be the best thing for monitoring in most situations, but they are very well suited to drum recording and listening to music in noisy places.

At about $200, they are a good deal. They are obvious competition with Sony's MDR 7506 headphones, and frankly they complement each other nicely. I would buy them again, but probably having one is enough for a studio unless you have a really loud band.
