Ludacris SL300

RH Numbers

The SL300s by Ludacris feature active, battery powered noise-cancellation like Bose aircraft headphones, but that’s where the similarities end. General build is shiny and brittle, while the chunky carry case and basic cables look budget. You need two AAA batteries in the right headphone cup to power the noise cancellation feature which adds weight but is essential as it’s the only thing that adds anything to the sound. General audio quality is average and faster rock tracks lack detail and struggle to get the right balance for anything beyond bass. The over-ear headphone cups themselves don’t grip as well as others on test.

Miles Davis Tribute

RH Numbers

Like the Lou Reed X10is, the Miles Davis tribute cans are all about getting studio-quality detail from your music which, in turn, lends itself perfectly to acoustic tracks and jazz. The premium feel from these Monster-made 'phones is tangible from the thick cord to the gold-plated earphones themselves. It’s a perfect - if expensive - blend of rugged and stylish design. There’s plenty of Miles Davis info and extras in the box for fans and only those seeking the ultimate in bass will need to seek on-ear headphones such as the Beats Solo, also by Monster, for louder, dance-based tracks.
