While at the NYIGF I stopped by AIAIAI’s booth to tell them how much I loved their headphones and t-shirt. I got a chance to test out the new TMA-1 headphones. A-MA-ZING. They fit over my ears like a glove and instantly the entire world melted away. I could feel the music throughout my entire body. Isn’t that exactly what you desire from headphones?

The TMA-1 are a DJ-style headphones much different from AIAIAI’s previous headphones — they are more utilitarian; the focus on this style was function. The TMA-1 was tested by some of the world’s most respected DJs: 27 leading names such as Tiga, James Murphy (one of my personal faves), A-Trak, Flying Lotus, Seth Troxler, Matthew Dear and Hot Chip, whose feedback helped shape the performance. Designed by Danish design firm KiBiSi and further developed in cooperation with Tartelet Records, Mannhandle and Thank You For Clapping, this new audio experience is one worth having.
