New Miles Davis Trumpet (not Tribute) earphones

post #1 of 505
Thread Starter 

Seems like nobody beat me to this, so here's a blog post from LaptopMag:

These seem more dedicated towards sound quality than their Beats lines. It seems they use a similar driver placement philosophy to the Hippo Shrooms.

Oh my damn!!! Okay, I don't need another universal, but you knows those are calling me just on styling alone!! tongue_smile.gifbeerchug.gifatsmile.gif

 

And if they sound like the MDs (but how can they?) that's good too. Whoa, but if the sound better. Okay, I'm happy with my customs, but I sure like the look of these. Must resist!!

Hey, but you gotta hand it to them for unique design. Of course, universal appeal is something else.redface.gif

well, it looks like they made new super tips  (or a specific eartip for these)

post #7 of 505

It is very unique but doesn't it look like they will snap off in the center after some time?

 

I wonder if Monster is going to step up the quality control for these by which I mean no drivers failing or getting low volume in one side, drivers not coming apart from the shell, and strain releifs staying in place.

I wouldn't worry so much about the 'hourglass' housings as they're probably solid brass like Monster's other earphones; rather, the cables and housing joints are the main areas of concern for me. Personally, my Turbines are fine after a year of use, but there's been way too many horror stories of multi-hundred dollar Turbine Pros falling apart on this forum. Monster had better improve build quality not just for this model, but in their manufacturing process in general.

maybe bending the housing could tune/tweak the sound sig

Maybe - if what you mean by 'tweak' is a permanent change from 'good' to 'crap.'

 

Monster Cable reminds me of Apple Computer, actually - they have their own interesting innovations and pretty designs, but they're also legally aggressive and like to jack up their prices. Fortunately, though, Monster's products are much easier to acquire significantly below their MSRP.

 But then they'd be the Dizzy Gillespie Trumpets.

I think they look kind of cool, if fragile.

post #14 of 505

lol good one guys. Anyways, I'll be tempted to get these but only if they get positive reviews from reliable sources. A good fit seems hard with that housing and as Anaxilus mentioned, I doubt the bass (and dynamics) of the MD Tributes will be replicated or at least be formidable with, considering such a small driver. Who knows until you hear it thought...

post #15 of 505

Are those BA or just 4mm dynamics? It looks a bit short for a BA so I'd assume tiny dynamic.
