Bad sound, discomfortable to wear and handle.
Stephan Z, 17.01.2020
Looking for affordable monitoring headphones ("cans") for studio tracking, I compared Superlux HD660, Superlux HD665, t.bone HD 990D, Vic Firth SiH2 and Beyerdynamic DT-770M to each other and to my DT-770 pro 80. I know, not a really fair reference, but my idea was to seek for a series of cans that would not cost more, preferably less than my DT-770 and still would have proper, useful sound quality. From the models selected, you can guess that acoustic isolation was also a desirable feature, to prevent the sound from the cans bleeding into e.g. a singer's mic and thus saving me time cleaning up tracks from this bleed. That is why I also searched among headphones dedicated to drummers. I will review all of the models mentioned, each in their own product page. Here we go for the Vic Firth SiH2.

Before I could even listen to it's sound, I had trouble unfolding it open and adjust it to fit to my head. The relatively thin metal wire that connects the ear shells to the head strap to me has a tendency to get worn out and over bent soon. Having succeeded to put the cans on my head, the shells felt a little small to be "over ear", they rather tended to be "on ear", and the padding was so thin that I felt the foam on the driver touch the skin of my ear. Acoustic isolation t.m.o. was not better than my DT-770 pro or good old Sennheiser HD 250 linear II. And then it's sound: very dull in all ranges of the spectrum, as if I was lying on my bed and listening to a speaker under my pillow! Definitely not my choice!

Surprised
Toxicity87, 21.01.2021
Wow, i hoped for a good damped headphone.. And this one does it all!
It fits good on your head, and it stays there, while drumming!
I love the comfort it gives you, it just can become sweaty, because of the pressure on your head.
Sorry neigbours, i can't hear you :-)

The most closed headphones ever!
Nikit, 08.06.2019
The main reason I bought SIH2 is an earprotection plus monitoring and it was the best choice for me. Once it came to me I immediately tried them in a drum practice session and I no longer needed to play softer in order to hear backing track or metronome like I had to do with my previous headphones... I was playing full power at last!!:)
Once I took them on rehearsal (used as "earplugs") it got even better. Despite the fact that SIH2 are extremely closed I was in total balance with others.
Also I tried them in mixing and well it's not a great studio headphones yet extremely useful for bass check.
One real disadvantage for me is that these headphones are really tight on my head and after an hour of use they get a bit annoying.
Overall I am satisfied with SIH2 and would advise them to all musicians (especially drummers) since its the most closed headphones I've ever tried. However, you should try them on before buying to see how tight they are on your head.

Epic for both electric and acoustic drumming
romerojnr, 13.10.2020
My only regret is not buying this since day one. Great for generic tracking but even better for drummers. Protects your hearing enough so you won't get deaf by the age of 30. Stop looking and just buy it already.
