Miles Davis headphones: Buds of the Cool?
The limited edition headphones are the first product to officially bear Miles Davis' name, authorized by Miles Davis Properties, LLC (the company that manages Davis' estate). They're also among Monster's most expensive ear buds, retailing at $499 (but can be ordered for $399 from monstercable.com).
For the hefty price tag, jazz lovers get a ton of extras. The headphones come with the 50th anniversary box set of Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, which includes 2 CDs and a DVD, plus a headphone test disc, 3 different carrying cases, and a wide selection of ear tips including Monster's new SuperTips.
Monster has not yet stated when the Miles Davis Tribute headphones ship, but the company is taking preorders now.
