Title: DIY Drummers headphones
Post by: Bokkie on July 27, 2010, 03:22:11 PM
Recently I were looking for some headphones that i could use during drum recording sessions. I have a great pare from Beyerdynamic 770, but there was still a lot of bleeding through the headphones. So i went to the store and found some Ficfirth  headphones. They looked alright, but they fitted like shit. I couldn't hear properly and my ears probably  would hurt after a while.
As a former cabinet maker and a Do It Yourself enthusiast, i came up with the following plan:
I had an old pare of Peltor ear-protectors    lying around and bought a cheap pare of sennheizer headphones.

They work perfectly!!

Very nice!
I've got an old pair of headphones with a broken 'frame' and I can probably pick up a decent pair of ear defenders for a couple of quid down a carboot, so I think I might give this a try.

Cheers Bokkie! :D

J'ai fini!
I picked up some ear defenders from the local builders merchants this morning for about four quid and installed the speakers when I had a spare half hour after lunch. They work a treat! Although they don't look quite as good as yours, Bokkie (they are the nicest shade of hard hat orange) :lol:
