Excerpt: I love unique products that deliver style, simplicity, quality, durability, and at the same time stay away from the mainstream fashion. If you are looking to spend around $150 and have great sounding all around headphones - you won't be disappointed with this choice; if you're DJ - than you...
Summary: I first tried their DJ version, and I liked it, but I prefer circumural design. I read that the Studios had tweaked drivers, so maybe they weren't so bassy. I took a chance with the Studio version and I fell in love! Tears coming from my eyes. I think I may have found the most versatile headphone for my musical tastes, which is 50/50 metal and electronic. I was really questioning if these were worth the price because, they do look flimsy.
Summary: After extensive research, I narrowed my search to these set of cans...and boy did they deliver! I hear sounds in songs that I never noticed before. I have never been one to ride the bandwagon but I gave the Beats by DRE a test drive...yuck! Too much bass. If you love true sound, are some what of an audiofile, can be rather "rough" with your precious electronics, dont want to be a walking billboard for Bose, Beats, or Sony...these should suite you well.
Summary: Having owned the original aiaiai tma-1's, my only large complaint with them was the cable design. Having addressed those issues with this particular version has made these headphones my number one listening accessory. The green accents are definitely to taste, but it is nice to have some color break up the overtly stealth driven look of the original.
Summary: Just picked these up locally and I must say, super comfy and sounds amazing. I normally use a pair of in-ear Shures so I wanted something more comfortable. These blow the Shures away by a mile. Absolutely.
Summary: Ok. I have about 20 hours of listening with these. For my curiosity on how these would perform on acoustics, against the original Tma-1, I put on a 24-bit 192khz recording of The Eagles, "Hotel California" with eq flat from my Asus Xonar Essence St sound card, and using J River Media Center in Wasapi - Event Style Mode.. and no doubt. I could already tell these were more neutral and more "acoustic friendly" headphones than that of the original Tma-1's.
Summary: I have spent the last week buying and exchanging headphones, looking for the perfect ones. After a few days use, I can say that I have found those perfect headphones! I first bought the Klipsch Image One headphones. Those were great and all, but they weren't over-ear headphones. They half rested over my ear and half rested on my ear, which became a nuisance. I returned the Klipsch to buy the infamous Bose Quiet Comfort 15's.
Summary: I am a battle/nightclub DJ in PA. I have gone through numerous headphones in the past few years. Top names like Pioneer, Allen & Heath, Technics, Shure, Beats by Dre have all broken on me during gigs. Most of them break at around the same point, the joint between the headband and ear cup. This headphone solved that problem with its one piece, almost rubber headband.
Summary: I'm a professional EDM DJ with of 15+ years of experience with multiple residencies, national and international bookings. I've gone through so many pairs of headphones over the years -- Sony (several), Pioneer and Stanton to name a few. They all suffer from the same bad designs. Eventually, your hinges will crack and your headphones will be useless. The pads dry out and the faux leather becomes all cracked.
Pros: Solved all the problems with Sony/Pioneer/Stanton DJ Headphones that have plagued DJs for years
