THE BEST In-Ear Headphones, EVER!
6 October 2012
Excerpt: I use my Miles Davis Tributes to Mix/Master Trance sets, listen to various styles of EDM, plus Classical, Jazz, Opera & Choir. The frequency response (once you find the correct tips for your ear canals, & i can't stress the importance of this step for driver placement / overall acoustic response!!) is the best in-ear experience I have ever had. Solid surprising Bass!! Crystal Highs, Crisp Mids. These outperform many of my other headphones, inc.
Pros: Frequency Response, Great Sound, Silicon Tips, Stereo Accuracy
Excerpt: I have heard pretty all IEMs, and I can say that these are one of the best sounding IEMs out there. Base sounds rich and realistic, and the high notes don't sound at all coloured. All around these perform very well for just about any kind of music without colouring the sound. Evenly balanced. I highly recommend using these IEMs with uncompressed audio files only, as MP3s are lossy and are missing quite a bit of depth.
Excerpt: Now, I'm not going to completely trash the Monster MDT, but for any readers who are true audiophiles, I hope some honesty will be appreciated. It seems like MOST of the people who rave about the MDT's are guys who have never listened to a higher quality IEM than their Ipod Earbuds, or some $60 Sony or Bose earphones they got from [@], and consequently they are blown away by the sound of the MDT.
Pros: Decent Sound, Somewhat solid build
Cons: Cord is too thin stiff, Dynamic Driver at this, Gaudy and ostentatious, Overpriced, Poor quality control, Too mid-oriented
Very nice earphone. a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review

Summary: I will comment only on the the earbuds themselves. They are very nice and clean sounding. There base is there when you need it and very composed. I own Klipsch X10 and Shure 535s. I would say that these fall right inbetween both those models. The Klipsch are a joy to wear and listen to. Great base and midrange. The shures are very clear but are tight at lighter in the base. The miles Davis just sound so darn nice. Everything is right.
Summary: [...] as far as sound is concerned, the MDT ear buds are truly excellent, and they reproduce classical (chamber and symphonic) and jazz extremely well, with a deep sound stage, tight bass, warm mid-range, and a realistic treble. And I write on my first day of ownership, without having broken them in. (I gather that they get even better with use.) I should add that the sound of these things is remarkably detailed, given the small size.
Summary: I have to admit it, I'm a metalhead. But I'm an audiophile as well. So why purchase jazz-oriented earphones you might ask? I've read alot on forums and aske questions and I've come to know that they have great bass (they move a LOT of air for in-ears!) as well being well balanced overall. They come with tons of eartips, 3 different cases and best of all, limited lifetime warranty.
Summary: The Miles Davis Tributes sound great. They highlight great bass and mids. They have a slightly warm sound that makes them very easy to listen to for long periods of time. The Monster Turbine Pro Coppers boast clearer trebles and a bit more bite in electric guitars and electric bass. Although I prefer the sound of acoustic instruments with the tributes, the tributes sound great with all types of music.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: This is the very best of the newest Iem's from monster. They are all very good. But in the End the MIles Davis Tribute stands out above the rest. Possibly one of the very finest iem's ever made. The sound signature is very good. It truly suits all music, not just Jazz. I would not hesitate to buy it again.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
