Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Pretty sure something is wrong with the cable."
_
"There is some cable noise (microphonics) when on the move which is a bit annoying but not nearly as bad as many other ie'sMy 'day-to-day' ie's have been UE700's which I like enormously and especially for rock with their deep bass."
_
"Another tip, if you do get them, make sure to use the clip to hold the headphones tight on your clothes, because if the cord moves a lot and your music is below a certain level then you will hear irritating brushing of the cord on the clothes."
_
"- Flat cord design will not be tangled easily."
_
"Plus, with the new SuperTips fitting, you can't get a better IEM experience (excellent sound isolation).My only complaint is that the cable is not quite long enough for me."
_
"It's strange, because you can still faintly hear the channel without static or interruption, which I believe means there is no cable problem."
_
"Aside from these headphones just being cool as hell, the sound quality is pretty good and the anti-tangle cord is a definite plus."
_
"Pretty sure something is wrong with the cable."
_
"The no-tangle cord works beautifully and the reinforced, right angle connector takes pressure off of the insertion point so as to likely extend the life of the earphones significantly."
_
"But as with most things that Monster Cable sells, the selling point IS the pretty face, and not the substance."

Design

Design:
"In honesty they're good headphones... but like most Monster in-ear headphones, there's a slight problem with the design sometimes."
_
"- Flat cord design will not be tangled easily."
_
"{__Final Thoughts__}Without the pretty design, if they came in average packaging and average housing, these are probably worth $20-ish."
_
"The beautifully designed trumpet cell phone controller pauses plays and controls volume."
_
"good quality Love the design!"
_
"It sports the ever so popular ribbon cable made famous by the company and the Track and Volume control buttons are actually designed like trumpet keys ( which in my opinion is pretty neat. )"
_
"The headphones come with several style tips similar to the Super Tip model, but they're designed specifically for the Trumpets, and a nice carrying case."
_
"These are really designed for a person who loves Jazz R&B; or anything bass oriented, but they work well with other genres."

Fit

Fit:
"That proved to be the case with me when I tried the different tips that came with the IEM: the smallest silicon gel-filled tips (they come in three sizes) barely fit and not that comfortably, and only the smallest foam (muliple sizes and shapes) and plain single-flange silicon (three sizes) tips really fit, and then only because they didn't add much width to the nozzle."
_
"The nozzle therefore is noticeably wider than those on other IEMs, and if you have a small ear canal, the Trumpets may not fit well."
_
"The fit was so good and the sound isolation so complete, that when I pulled out the earbuds (with no music playing) the first time, I hadn't even been aware that the very loud compressor in our office had kicked on."
_
"I also had some trouble finding the perfect fit among the five different style tips Monster provides, which vary a little in size and firmness."
_
"The fit is comfortable."
_
"I have had difficulty getting them to 'fit' really well and had to fiddle with them to get an air-tight fit but once done they are really comfortable for extended listening sessions."
_
"The ie's need to be fitted really well as any poor fit means almost non-existent bass."

Music

Music:
"But if you like your music to be more compressed and not have such a distinction between good and bad recordings, try the Shure E2 line if your looking for earbuds that sit deep, or try the popular Bose IE line for buds that don't sit so far into the canal."
_
"Another tip, if you do get them, make sure to use the clip to hold the headphones tight on your clothes, because if the cord moves a lot and your music is below a certain level then you will hear irritating brushing of the cord on the clothes."
_
"BEWARE: crappy quality music is heard in these and will ruin some songs for you."
_
"These were purchased for my college son who loves music!"
_
"I wouldnt recommend the the headphones if you listen to a lot of heavy bass and heavy beat type of music but to people who listen to classical easy listening type music as the sound quality is really clear for that."
_
"The highs are amazing, I listen to a lot of trance and these earphones just make the music sound amazing."
_
"As a musician and great lover of music, these headphones are incredibly refreshing."

Price

Price:
"Not cheap but very, very good."
_
"I still feel the Miles Davis name brought the price to a point that would make them unavailable to most of us including myself."
_
"Please don't waste your money get something else"
_
"Well worth the price that was paid."
_
"If you have an extra $1000 to spend definitely do, but comparatively speaking to two sets in the price range mentioned they are good."
_
"Sound quality is good to excellent and for the price they are excellent."
_
"I will have to say that they sound amazing and are well worth the price."

Quality

_

Sound

Sound:
"Once I adjusted to the sound I've not been able to get away from it."
_
"I tried the inspirations found they were too uncomfortable, and lacked the sound I wanted."
_
"My problem with them is complete sound."
_
"Plus, with the new SuperTips fitting, you can't get a better IEM experience (excellent sound isolation).My only complaint is that the cable is not quite long enough for me."
_
"Shame, because the sound quality was really quite good."
_
"Kudos to headphones makers who give a crap about comfort, in addition to sound quality and isolation."
_
"These headphones achieve excellent sound quality as well as great isolation from outside sounds."
_
"p. s. The Creative Aurvana In-ear 2 is comfortable and has decent sound, but stops working after less than one month of daily use (ditto for Skull Kandys)."
_

Trumpet

Trumpet:
"So the moral is, (aside from all of the janky b. s. and dubious head games)if your Trumpets fail, don't take no for an answer (at least in around late 2014), and talk to someone's boss if you get the run around."
_
"The isolation of Creative Aurvana is on par with HiFi Man RE-400; however, the isolation of both is not as good as the Miles Davis Trumpet."
_
"It's also worth mentioning that when I went to adjust the earphones in my ears, it felt a little weird to touch what's essentially a mini trumpet mouthpiece."
_
"As a result, the Trumpets weren't that comfortable, and it was difficult to get the IEM positioned for ideal sound."
_
"The nozzle therefore is noticeably wider than those on other IEMs, and if you have a small ear canal, the Trumpets may not fit well."
_
"My hope is they don't discontinue these as well (they have greatly expanded their lineup, which is not good for older models).Whatever they did with the Trumpets, they need to do more of the same with their newer models."
_
"The beautifully designed trumpet cell phone controller pauses plays and controls volume."
_
"At the same, you're good shaped like a trumpet."
_
"I found the Miles Davis TRUMPET headphones to be unforgivably precise - and the best sounding headphones I own."
_
"It sports the ever so popular ribbon cable made famous by the company and the Track and Volume control buttons are actually designed like trumpet keys ( which in my opinion is pretty neat. )"
_
"The headphones come with several style tips similar to the Super Tip model, but they're designed specifically for the Trumpets, and a nice carrying case."
