Best on the market
Robin L, 15.04.2020
It's very light and small compared to the older versions.
In terms of extra pressure needed, it hasn't improved much over older generations but honestly, that wasn't much of an issue anyway.

The sound is a tad more quiet tho so that's nice. (The older, almost bazooka looking one, had a bit more low end leaking through which you could hear better through thin walls at home.)

The sound from the device however is outstanding compared to other new and older devices. I wouldn't record an album with it or use it for live micing, but it actually sounds as if you are in a studio or a church. A very pleasant and full sound.
Tho I'd recommend to get better headphones than the one they give you.

A "must have" tool for studying in places where you can't be loud.
By a long shot, the best on the market.

Perfect for playing without noise
Maiti Gion, 16.09.2020
If you live in an apartment and you play trumpet or other brass instruments you definitely want this mute.

I tried other "silent" mutes and the difference with this are noticeable: this one is lighter, it stays inside the trumpet (or the cornet), the air flow is nearly "natural" (usually the silent mutes restrain your breath very much more).

Last but not least, this is the one that permit to train yourself hearing what you are playing. I didn't try the "best brass" system which seems also very interesting so I can't compare to that, but the Yamaha one works great.

I put only 3 stars on "quality" because of the quality / price ratio.
The price for all the kit is around 200 € more or less, the cables are "cheap", the earphones are of poor quality (I use my AKG ones instead), and the "personal studio" maybe should have some effect or an integrated tuner to justify the price.
The good news is that you can use the system with any other brass, just buying the suitable mute.

In sum of all, very good tool at a reasonable price.

Good, but not as good as I hoped
Jay2, 13.01.2021
Works well and really keeps things quiet. On the minus side there is a slight delay in coming on for a first note. I think the engineers were trying to save battery life by it going to "sleep" after a short time. It would be better if it had an external power supply e.g. usb, but it does not have this, and then no need to sleep.
The build of the cone is good but the build quality of the control box is not as good as you could expect for this brand. Everything works but the controls feel a bit cheap. I would have liked slightly more airflow even at the expense of perhaps slightly more noise. Anyway much better sound than a practice mute and I used it with a small active speaker rather than headphones.

Alternative to classical mutes
SanyiTa, 15.01.2020
First time I was impressed, that such an opportunity exists. Workmanship is ok, despite it, that seems to me like cheap plastic. Headphones has to changed for more quality ones.
Pros - hear real not muted tone, not so bad, as alternative to mechanical mute. Also possible used with reverb, feeling of hall.
Cons: weight (not so big disadvantage, but after an half of hour weight matter). For me, biggest disadvantage is back pressure, which some mechanical mutes do not have. So presently I play certain time on Silent Brass and some time on mechanical mute. If possible, practice without mute
