Comfortable, professional-level headphones with passive noise reduction


BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (October 1, 2013) — KAT Percussion now gives drummers their own private musical space, with the new Ultra Isolation Headphones (KTUI26). Designed with the drummer in mind, the Ultra Isolation Headphones offer a wide dynamic range and superior external noise isolation.

Lightweight and durable, KAT Ultra Isolation Headphones (MSRP: $109.95) are made with large comfortable foam ear cushions to combat ear fatigue and reduce external noise by 26 decibels. The 1/8” stereo headphone jack also comes with an add-on ¼” adapter.  

 “KAT’s new Ultra Isolation Headphones are the ideal choice for private practicing and critical listening,” said Mark Moralez, product manager for KAT. “The headphones make practicing acoustic drums sound like a studio mix.”
