  • Decent headphones for drummers

    Vic Firth SIH1Publié le 07/13/14 à 20:27
    More than just being a manufacturer of high-quality drumsticks, Vic Firth also produces several accessories for drummers of various ages, styles, and preferences. One of their most popular accessories is the SIH1 Stereo Isolation Headphones.

    I have my SIH1 for almost 5 years, and I mainly use it for monitoring and play-along during practice and live performances. Design-wise, this is pretty much Vic Firth’s isolation earmuffs that are fitted with stereo headphones and cables for use as a monitoring and listening device. The first time I wore it, it had quite a tight fit. It was a bit uncomfortable for me at first, but later on it loosened a bit and I got used to it. Its snug fit is......

    More than just being a manufacturer of high-quality drumsticks, Vic Firth also produces several accessories for drummers of various ages, styles, and preferences. One of their most popular accessories is the SIH1 Stereo Isolation Headphones.

    I have my SIH1 for almost 5 years, and I mainly use it for monitoring and play-along during practice and live performances. Design-wise, this is pretty much Vic Firth’s isolation earmuffs that are fitted with stereo headphones and cables for use as a monitoring and listening device. The first time I wore it, it had quite a tight fit. It was a bit uncomfortable for me at first, but later on it loosened a bit and I got used to it. Its snug fit is an assurance that these headphones won’t slip off my head during performance. I wish the design of the earmuffs was less bulky and more compact. I look like I have two large black domes on the sides of my head.

    At its price range, I wasn’t expecting a stellar sound quality similar to high-end models from popular headphone brands (Shure, Monster, Sony, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, etc). I look at it as blue-collar drummer’s headphones. The SIH1's sound quality is not at par with the Shure and M-Audio in-ear monitors that I have owned and used. It may not be high-end, but its sound quality is decent enough to be used for monitoring and listening. So if high sound quality is important to you, get the high-end, more expensive models. Otherwise, the SIH1 does its job of providing decent monitoring.

    I also like the idea that the SIH1 is also an ear protection device. I can also use this just like a pair of earmuffs, in case I want to preserve and protect my hearing during practice. During performance, it also helps reduce ambient noise from the drums and other instruments. In terms of ear protection (plus our responsibility of adjusting the music at a safe and reasonable volume level), this is highly effective.

    One thing to watch out for is the SIH1’s cable. After months of use, the stereo jack got broken, and I had it repaired by my techie guitar player. I also have a drummer friend whose SIH1’s cables failed, and he asked his repairman to replace it with a removable cable (which is a good idea that Vic Firth can consider). Another thing to look after is its frame. With regular use, it may look like it can break pretty easily. On my SIH1, the fabric-like material on the “hairband” part of the frame already has a few small tears.

    Overall, the Vic Firth SIH1 is a decent set of headphones for drummers. It may not be the best-sounding headphones available, but it does its job well in monitoring and protecting our valuable hearing.

    I mailed the notice on the new version of Vic Firth SIH1 headphone, with the cable in place.

    -How long you use it?

    I use it for 4 months now, both for playing drums on the tracks I put on my mp3 player to that of the bass by connecting the headphone output.

    -What is so special that you love the most, least?

    The original volume of the headset is ideal for battery cable place is nicer compared to the coil. I use it often for the battery without necessarily playing with music in the headphones and the cable does not bother me. For against this kind of headphone is the smell of perspiration and should not be too long to play with, I have a spare headphone to avoid damaging the......

For against this kind of headphone is the smell of perspiration and should not be too long to play with, I have a spare headphone to avoid damaging the SIH1.

    -Did you tried many other models before buying it?

    I tried the old version with coiled cable was not great because the wire is annoying to play with or without music, and the volume was too low, on the metal or death metal, I heard only my cymbals . Vic Firth has managed its new SIH1.

    -How would you rate the quality / price?

    The base price was 80 €, I got a discount for Christmas, I think € 65 would be more appropriate even if it's a very good headphone.

    -With experience, you do again this choice?

    With a discount for Christmas without hesitation.

    This is a headphone of poor quality and poorly designed. The insulation is pretty crappy, because the speakers, instead of being at the bottom of the headphone, they are all on board. So the ears are flattened, so it does not isolate anything and it hurts. Also the sound quality is a multimedia headset to 20 euros.
  • Good insulation headphone!

    Purchased on a site well-known German, not expensive, it does the job I asked him, namely drummer headphones back in the studio. It insulates and helps to convey a click and / or guitar witness etc. ..
    It serves well head so the ears are flattened like pancakes after 3h, but at least the eardrums are safe!

    Warning, this is not a headset for mixing, it was not designed to play music or movies are on computer ...

    4 months of use. I have used a seinheiser hd497 + ball plugs pianissimo (two different pairs)

    + = the insulation, keeping head


    the - = cable, ear pain in the long and disgusting sounds Surtour: yes I mean it. Spatialization is zero,

    value for money is blah.

    it is a loan so I am not counting the buying.

    Excellent headphone cuts the user of the outside world: now you can send the playback sound in his ear muffs! And to record it the ultimate trs ^ ^ It means well, but not what happens in the piece (almost!).

    For home studio: Royal! It can swing a click track and a background in the ears without a mic will not pick up anything from the headset! A guitar amp background (for example) no longer covers what it means to the headphone! No more recording head made of!

    For then the drummers is the ultimate happiness: In game you can exploded cymbals and snare without realizing it, much as in recording. Everything is possible without sacrificing hearing. Also the sound pressure of the......

    For then the drummers is the ultimate happiness: In game you can exploded cymbals and snare without realizing it, much as in recording. Everything is possible without sacrificing hearing. Also the sound pressure of the battery cover never playback in the headphone: It's all good, all beautifully s'quilibre ^ ^ And Hop! we can do without it!

    CAUTION: The transmission to the ears what he sends, but without the lace! And yes the cost is not exactly linear nor even any APRS trs good but he is asked just to balance the sound, not excellent sound quality. In short OUT TO ANY QUESTION OR MIX WITH MONITORING!!

    The SIH1 rsout many worries recording is a beautiful Russianness.
    A must for rock musicians.

    I was looking for a headset that allows me to hear my tracks properly witnessed while I play the drums and at this level it is very effective. Send my control lane and the transplanted his battery in the headset and it's very enjoyable to play. When removed, it almost feels assaulted by the natural noise level of the battery. This is a good choice as to protect his ears, if not to send a high volume in the headphones ...

    Regarding the sound quality itself, I am a bit disappointed. The lack of brightness in the treble and bass definition is poor ... the fact that the headphone must be completely closed much play in the acute lack of ventilation.

    My second complaint is the level of comfort. We can solve absolutely nothing to fit our heads and I find it a bit too small for me. He shakes a lot too and it gets annoying after a while.

    He deserves still a good 8 / 10 because its primary purpose is still to isolate the sounds outside and he does it very well.

    Report taken simply unbeatable quality (3 years ago)

    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

    I think so, but when j'tudierai same high-end headphones, even when that comfort suprieur.
    J'enlve a point of note for the construction, and for a length of cable.
    This remains my taste even when a value sr both acoustic recording, and for the games solo drummer.
