Pros: Neutral sounding with slight mid bass tilt. Bass is well extended. Treble is clear without roughness.
Cons: Avoid tugging on the cables. Handle the trumpets by the mouthpiece.
Sound is neutral with a slight mid bass tilt. Highs and lows are well extended. Sound stage is large for an iem. The bass has some impact without being boomy. The treble is clear without roughness.
Don't pull hard on the cable. The strain relief is not strong. Hold the Trumpet by the "mouthpiece" end when handling them.
If you have the Trumpets, you should try these memory phone tips from lostearbuds on ebay. They have transformed my Trumpets from unwearable to wonderfully comfortable and full sounding.
I bought the Trumpets over a year ago and never wore them because of the fit. I tried every one of the 11 pairs of tips that Monster includes. The silver ones without the gel would not seal and would fall out in less than a minute. The silver ones with the gel are very hard. The foam supertips are better, but they too will start to irritate and fall out after 5 or 10 minutes. None of Compy's tips will fit the Trumpets.
These lostearbuds tips are the perfect fit for the Trumpets. This combo is so comfortable, I forget that they are in. I can wear them for hours and not feel any irritation, and they don't fall out. Because of the large bore size on the Trumpets, they need a very soft memory foam tip like lostearbuds to get a comfortable seal. Before inserting them in your ear, will will need to roll and compress the tips because they slide a little on the stem. You will need to replace these tips after a few months because they can harden with usage.
