Headphones For Drummers: 6 Noise-Isolating Options For Practicing

Isolation Headphones for Drummers

Headphones are rather crucial to our daily life. Whether you’re using your Apple iPhone earbuds or your favorite Bluetooth headphones, there is a big chance you use them often.

Many of these consumer-grade choices make terrible options for playing drums.

For starters, drums are quite loud, and these types of earbuds and headphones often won’t reduce the amount of volume that your kit puts out.

Many manufacturers make specific isolation headphones made to reduce the level of volume in your ears and from external sources: your drum kit, for example.
