MONSTER “MILES DAVIS TRUMPET” HEADPHONES: REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN MEETS REVOLUTIONARY SOUND

Inspired by the Iconic Artists’ Very Own Instrument

MONSTER  “MILES DAVIS TRUMPET” HEADPHONES:
REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN MEETS REVOLUTIONARY SOUND
— Innovative “Jazz-Tuned” Headphones Feature World’s Smallest Driver; Aesthetic Design Cues Taken from Trumpet; Created in Conjunction with Miles Davis Properties, LLC —

Las Vegas, NV, January 5, 2011 — 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 debut of the “Miles Davis Trumpet” high-performance in-ear headphones (SRP: $349). Like Monster’s acclaimed “Miles Davis Tribute™” high-performance in-ear headphones (SRP: $499.95), the new Miles Davis Trumpet headphones were created in conjunction with Miles Davis Properties, LLC.

World’s Smallest Drivers and Reference-Quality Audio Performance
The new Miles Davis Trumpet headphones feature a uniquely jazz-inspired style, with aesthetic cues taken from Miles’ trumpet itself, including mouthpiece shaped earpieces and a striking gold/brass finish, with a Miles Davis silhouette and etched signature on the cord. The headphones also come with a special magnifier that allows users to better see the miniature laser-etched Miles Davis signature and Monster logo on the trumpet housing.

Designed in every way to be as revolutionary as the iconic musician, Miles Davis Trumpet headphones are precision-tuned to reproduce the subtle nuances and unique acoustic tones of jazz. Most notably, they feature the world’s smallest drivers. Their reference-quality audio is made possible thanks to key Monster innovations, including a new design that allows the earpiece to rest more comfortably and deeper within the wearer’s ear canal, enabling a perfect fit, superior isolation and ultimate performance, so all music can be heard with exceptional clarity and presence.

Miles Davis Trumpet headphones are being made available with the Monster ControlTalk™ headphone cable*, which can be used with iPhone™ and iPod® for music playback control as well as to take hands-free calls with iPhone and many smartphones. The specially created Miles Davis Trumpet ControlTalk on-cable box, customized to resemble the three piston valves of a trumpet, features an integrated high-grade microphone and answer button and allows users to access their music and answer phone calls without having to reach into their pocketbook, backpack or pocket.

Unique One-Time Limited Lifetime Replacement Guarantee
Notably, Miles Davis Trumpet 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 Trumpet headphones – even if users accidentally break the headphones themselves, Monster will replace them once for no charge.

Head Monster Noel Lee noted: “Everything about Miles Davis was revolutionary, from his uniquely personal music to his style, attitude and artistic integrity, and his contribution to the art of music cannot be understated. Last year, with the debut of our Miles Davis Tribute headphones, our goal 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. Now, with Miles Davis Trumpet headphones, we’ve taken our admiration and respect to for this iconic artist to the next level, combined a proprietary new design that features the world’s smallest drivers and other significant engineering improvements. Miles Davis Trumpet headphones are more than merely a deliver on this promise with a richness of unprecedented audio detail and sonic virtuosity.”

In addition, Miles Davis Trumpet headphones come with Monster’s new high performance foam “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 Trumpet headphones is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to improve the quality of the portable audio experience.
