Direct Sound’s Serenity II Headphones, a Great Option for Road Warriors


Meet a pair of stylish headphones that are noise cancelling at their core. At home or on the go and you want to focus on your activity, not the background noise – Direct Sound’s Serenity II Headphones are a great solution. They tout the best passive, battery-free sound isolation and TruSound tonal accuracy on the market to boot.

For those of you not familiar with the brand, Direct Sound is known in the professional music world as the category leader for isolation headphones — headphones used by world class recording artists to isolate live instruments (such as the sound of live drums or guitars) out of the headphones so the artist can hear clearly during recording.

The engineering team took the same leading isolation design approach they used with musicians and applied it to the Serenity II, which equates to top notch foam and padding. and over-the-ear ear cup design to isolation noise. They don’t require batteries or other finicky phasing technology used in many noise-cancelling headphone models.

The Serenity II headphones have an NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) of 25 db (dB stands for Decibels), meaning they isolate that level of exterior sound. Virtually no other travel headphone model can make this claim. And, because you never need batteries, you don’t worry about losing your quiet and relaxing environment because your batteries ran out, which is a godsend for avid travelers.

The Serenity IIs come with a long cord, a splitter (so you can share your music with a friend on the plane or in travel), and a carrying case. The headphones fold up for easy packing. They also have a “Red is Right” feature, with a red covering on the inside ear cup of the right headphone. This so you can easily tell which is the right side in a dimly lit airline cabin or elsewhere.

They retail for around $169.95 which is a fair price given the quality of headphones. For those of you who want silence while you’re on the road, the Serenity II headphones would make a great traveling pal, one which can offer a little peace and relaxation to your otherwise noisy journey. Two thumbs up! More information can be found at
