Monster Miles Davis Tribute appreciation thread - Page 98

post #1456 of 2252

I finally got a set of the Miles Davis Tributes yesterday and i have to say ,so far i am really loving there sound ,these have some fantastic bass , with a really strong mid/upper bass impact as strong as the Monster Golds but much tighter and better controlled with much better separation of the drums and bass guitar ,and the midrange and treble sound much more natural to me than the Coppers ,over all these are the best looking and best sounding of the pro turbine line to these ears                                                                                                          .DCP_1770.JPG DCP_1772.JPG

Welcome to the club!

 

Even though I have the EX1000s now I still really enjoy these anytime I revisit them. And even though the EX1000 is the superior earphone(by a decent margin), I still prefer these for jazz and hip-hop.

Hi , so far i resisted the temptation of the EX1000 ,i was interested in it for some time but i read to many posts about the treble being harsh and sibilant ,which  made them to much of a gamble at the price they go for .The Miles Davis have just the right amount of treble for my ears ,music like AVENGED SEVENFOLD really rocks on these .L3000.gif

Nah, the treble of the EX1000s isn't harsh or sibilant at all IMO. I think the few people who report such things have fit/source issues or something else. When I hear sibilance, I hear it on every other 'phone I have. Though in the case of the MMDT, it's much less pronounced.

 

Glad you're enjoying them! They have great timbre too.ksc75smile.gif

I only found the EX1000 to be beautiful, but it unquestionably has a boost in the treble. I think that's part of what makes it beautiful, but I could see others having an issue. Sibilance is a strange thing, there was even a guy who absolutely insisted that the MMDT was sibilant, even though it's about the least sibilant earphone I can think of.

I do, well, just the MDs.  I've flirted w/ selling them a few times after doing customs and all the other gear but I listen to them again and they are just so unique sounding.  You either get the sound on an emotional level or you don't.  It's not a signature to analyze or think about technically.  Kind of reminds me of the following many high-end Audio Technicas have.

forgot how fun MD can be. I have been spending time with my full phones.

Yeah i know what you mean ,there signature has a certain enchanting quality to them that is so unique and enjoyable , there signature does not work with everything i play on them ,but play something that does work with them and it is a very intoxicating listen indeed.normal_smile%20.gif

I agree.  I own both the Pro Golds and Miles Davis Tributes, and I believe the sub bass on the Tributes is much better with a more forward midrange and a little bit better highs, although I do like the laid back highs on the Golds.  I prefer the Tributes for my "bass" preference iem.  I actually think the Tributes have a tad more sub bass than my DT770/80 Pros.  They are both more than adequate in the bass department.

Hey guys, quick question.

 

Just got the Tributes yesterday off ebay from a seller named Blinq. Loving the sound on these, they are replacing my Coppers which broke after two years but were luckily under Squaretrade warranty. I have checked youtube videos comparing originals to fakes, and these fit the description of what originals should come with. Besides they sound amazing, and after having the coppers I think I would notice the difference  between originals and fakes.

 

I got them for $250 as new, and they came with all the accessories. However, the box was not shrink wrapped, instead there was tape covering the box and the outside sleeve. Obviously these had been opened before, although it seems like they did not suffer from too much usage as all the super tips and the cds were in pristine state. For this price I don't mind much that they came open box. 


However, heres where the issue arises. After listening to them for about an hour and switching tips, I noticed that the left driver is missing the mesh cover (or filter, not sure what its called). It still has this white, flimsy substance covering the entrance, but the metallic one is not there. I have contacted the seller and they said they will refund my money. But is this really a big issue? They sound great right now, I'm just afraid that in the future they won't because of this. I don't want to go through the hassle of having to find someone else selling these earphones at the same price and then having to go through the whole process of checking whether they are fakes or not.

 

What do you guys think, is the mesh cover/filter very important to the wellbeing of the earphones?

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm always skeptical about buying Monster products from unauthorized sellers(specially if the seller is selling more than one). If the QC looks shoddy, or the item was advertised new and didnt come in shrinkwrap, it could very well have been a fake..

That said, I have had my recent pair for several months(coming close to a year I think), and nothing is falling apart..
