Damn these things look tight! Having being totally snubbed by Monster Cable for past review inquiries (Dr. Dre HeadPhones), it’s unlikely that I’ll get to review these either. Whimper…
To celebrate the 50 anniversary of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue album, Monster Cable is releasing a pair of limited edition high-performance in-ear headphones in his honor. Each pair will be numbered and accompanied with the box set of Kind of Blue, which will contain 2 CD’s, a DVD, and a 24-page booklet.
No word yet on pricing or availability but I’m sure we can all surmise that they ain’t gonna be cheap.
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Monster, renowned for its many advanced consumer electronics accessories and fast becoming one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-performance headphones, is proud to announce the upcoming introduction of the world’s first audio hardware product to bear the official name and signature of legendary trumpeter Miles Davis – the new “Miles Davis Tribute” high-performance in-ear headphones. Created in conjunction with Miles Davis Properties, LLC, the new headphones are being offered in a individually numbered limited edition. Adding value to this limited edition release, purchasers of the Miles Davis Tribute headphones will also be able to enjoy free of charge the official 50th Anniversary boxed set of the artist’s seminal album Kind of Blue, featuring two music CDs, a DVD and a 24-page booklet.
Miles Davis Tribute headphones feature a striking gold/brass finish based on the actual trumpet played by the artist, featuring a Miles Davis silhouette and gold-etched signature on the earpiece. The headphones are complemented by an attractive “kind of blue” cord and uniquely designed “musical instrument” carry case. Designed in every way to capture the essence of the renowned musician’s style, the Miles Davis Tribute headphones are tuned to reproduce the subtle nuances of music, with advanced sonic technologies engineered to deliver reference-quality audio.
Unique One-Time Limited Lifetime Replacement Guarantee
Notably, Miles Davis Tribute headphones come with the industry’s most unique guarantee. In addition to the warranty on manufacturer defects, Monster is offering a one-time Limited Lifetime Replacement Guarantee with Miles Davis Tribute headphones – even if users accidentally break the headphones themselves, Monster will replace them once for no charge!
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: “We’re all music lovers and critical audiophiles here at Monster, and our goal with these Miles Davis Tribute headphones was to elevate the personal music listening experience with a product capable of reproducing the many subtle shadings and dynamics of all types of music, including the unmistakable Miles sound, with a style and design that is the ‘essence of cool.’ Through the use of proprietary new materials, a new advanced driver design and other engineering improvements, our Miles Davis headphones deliver on this promise with a richness of unprecedented audio detail and sonic virtuosity.”
Monsterous Extras Included with Miles Davis Tribute Headphones
Purchasers of Monster Miles Davis Tribute headphones will enjoy a variety of extras that will significantly enhance the personal listening experience. Most notably, the specially crafted “instrument case” for the Miles Davis Tribute headphones features a plush blue velvet inlay with a gold-printed signature. In addition, Monster provides multiple sizes of its new high performance “SuperTip” eartips that offer superior noise isolation, while improving the overall performance by preventing sound leakage. The key to the effectiveness of SuperTip eartips is a patent-pending engineered material that provides a secure custom seal to help eliminate unwanted noise. The end result is astoundingly clean, tight audio response and great-sounding music that can be listened to without fatigue for hours and hours.
Finally, Monster’s innovative cable management system features a convenient designed on-cable slider and clip that keeps weight off the headphones so they stay snug in the user’s ears. The debut of Monster Miles Davis Tribute headphones is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to improve the quality of the portable audio experience.
