    Hi to all,
    This is my first post and I hope I´ll learn a lot within this forum.

    I play drums in a band and I have to use click because the music is from the computer. I use some headphones but I normally have to untap one of the ear caps, because otherwise I´ll lose all frequencies and my snare and cymbal just doesn´t sound good.

    So I wanted to know if there is any in-ear or headphones that reduced the outside volume but keeping the frequencies, mainly without cutting mid´s and high´s.

    I could spend 200$

    Thanks in advance! :D

    There are headphones MADE for drummers.. I cant remember any names right now (typical?) but google probably will.

    Yes, but what they do is isolate the best so you can only hear the amplified drum. The problem is that the drum isn´t amplified in the reharsals, so the problem is that besides isolating it also cuts all the frequencies. :(

    as far as traditional headphones go, you're going to want something that's either open or semi-open. check out sennheiser...i used to have a pair of tear-drop shaped phones that were open--would be perfect for your application. i've also heard good things about grado.

    the only drawback to your current setup is that you're going to have to really blast a set of open headphones. you may also want to consider a dedicated in-ear monitoring system, or just purchasing a set of high quality earbuds like the shure e5 and wearing it in just one ear.
