DIY Isolation Headphones

Having trouble with click bleed? Most drummers need the click at earsplitting levels, so bleed from the click track can become a problem, especially on quiet passages. The same goes for anyone playing an acoustic instrument like a guitar, dobro or violin (fiddle to you Nashvillians). The instruments are naturally quiet and the sound of the click can get easily out of hand.

If you can't afford a set of Vic Firth isolation phones (preferred by drummers these days) or just need to bang something together quickly, this video will show you how to do it on the cheap.

The Vic Firth headphones are not so great. The pair I have are quieter on the plug side than the non-plug side. I've recently switched to using a pair of -25db earmuffs I bought at Home Depot ($25) in conjunction with a pair of iPod headphones (for the time being). Without actually using the Vic Firths for audio playback, they aren't as quiet as the earmuffs, and the earmuffs are more musical to my ear in what they do let in - they sound better.
