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 though is these are definitely not the most comfortable headphones out there.
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: The AIAIAI (eye, eye, eye) TMA-1 was designed and marketed primarily as a DJ club headphone. I am not a DJ so I purchased the TMA-1 as a portable headphone, and this review is based on that function, not as a DJ headphone.
Function: The TMA-1 is made out of a rubberised plastic type of material, which results in them being fairly flexible with a sturdy, durable feel to them.
Pros: Price/value, compact, efficient, ballanced fun sound
Summary: *Previously posted in the Full-Sized Headphones forum. I only recently became aware of the review section of Head-Fi.*
This is largely intended to be a review of the AiAiAi TMA-1 with using the Audio Technica ATH-M50 as a point of reference.
A forum member asked for this comparison in the main TMA-1 thread. I ordered the TMA-1 as a possible replacement for my M50 as my "banger 'phone" (i.e.
Pros: Sound quality well exceeds the price of admission, responds well to EQ adjustments, scales very well with the proper equipment
Cons: Soundstage limited by closed-back design, EQ necessary to balance sound for non-DJ use
Summary: Sounds great. I use these for mastering demos when I don't want to fire up the Genelecs. I love the look. Optional cables with different jacks is great. The only problem I have with these is that they feel loose on the head and I have a big head. It's nice they won't create pressure when wearing them for a long time, but I wouldn't use them while doing anything that requires head movement. Even nodding DJing might make them fall off.
certainly not bad sound quality like the totally plain design

Summary: not particularly outstanding but they do a decent job, certainly not bad sound quality like the totally plain design, not the largest ever and point of contact doesn't wrap around the ears so can get slightly sore after a prolonged listening session
Summary: Well bought these in 2011 and they have been languishing in a cupboard due to the muffled recessed sound on iPod. I was about to sell them on eBay but decided to read the reviews here. Consequently I stuck them up my E12 headphone amp for another hour on loud then had a listen. Wow they are good....but a little volume is needed to bring the vocals out. Will be keeping.
Summary: These headphones have an amazing sound, feel great on your head and a good design. I only gave them 4 stars as I got them from the warehouse ( for a great price), but the left hand phone adjuster broke within the first week of having them.
