Excerpt: First things first, the sound quality is amazing on these. If you are moving up from earphones that came with your last phone purchase, you will be blown away. Great bass, adequate sound dampening; these things make your mp3 collection sound better than you have probably heard it before.The downside...
Excerpt: I really like this headphone for the sound quality. Great response throughout the frequency ranges. Comfort level is acceptable but will give you numb ears after wearing it for an hour or so but overall it's an acceptable trade off for exceptional sound experience.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
Summary: I bought these expecting that they would be fairly neutral headphones with the ability for extra bass because of their DJ background, but instead I found that they offered tons of bass right off the bat and gave a very lively, colored listening experience.
Pros: Punchy, precise and loud bass, comfort, isolation, crisp but relaxed highs
Summary: I stand directly in front of, or sit on top of a stack of 30Hz bass bins at the office. These isolate well enough to cue music at the loudest volumes I can create with the foam cups. The leather cups do not seal to my head, however.
Pros: durability, isolation, style, response
Cons: headband comfort, leather cups aren't to my liking, foam cups have QC issues**, might've come with a case at this price
Summary: As a quick overview for the reader who wants it over and done with in a sentence:
These made me love on-ear headphones again.
Firstly, they look really stylish in the fact that they're not tatted with "Aiaiai TMA-1" logos everywhere.
Pros: Just enough bass, stylish, easy to drive, removable cable
Summary: Today, I am reviewing my old partner at work, the Aiaiai TMA-1 "DJ" headphones and I am putting an emphasis on the word DJ. There have been many good reviews on this headphone, but none has actually pointed out to their true nature as DJ headphones.
Pros: These are DJ headphones designed by DJs
Cons: None... unless you are using them as an Audiophile reference or a consumer headphone
Summary: ~some TMA-1 eye candy~
I am not a regular at headfi but I took the time to write this review. Before purchasing these headphones I had a very hard decision to make and that was between the Sennheiser HD25-1 ii, Audio-Technica ATH M50, and the TMA-1s.
Pros: Durability, Clear engaging sound, Good features, Comfortable, Nice looks
Cons: recessed highs, foam pads, coiled cable, not good on all genres.
