Miles Davis died in 1991, but left behind a legacy as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century. Since his death, the jazz world has seen all sorts of reissues and special products dedicated to that legacy. Given what great ears he had, it should be no surprise that among the products being manufactured in his name is a set of Miles Davis Tribute Headphones, produced by Monster Cable. The headphones are described as being high performance, much like their inspiration. The headphones feature the iconic image of Miles, taken by the late David Gahr and most associated with the Jack Johnson recording for Columbia.

Created in conjunction with Miles Davis Properties, the headphones are being offered in individually numbered limited editions. And, according to a press release sent to JT, 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.
