“While we’re getting plastered and jumping around on the floor, they’re actually doing a serious work.” Keep in mind this quote is from someone in Europe so DJs over there aren’t the standard Top 40 human iPods we’re used to here. They don’t need morning radio shows because they’re so good they’re selling out arenas and sleeping with your girlfriend. And these guys need serious headphones. Aiaiai set out to create a pair of high-quality, iconic, technologically advanced headphones with the TMA-1. Cool Hunting goes on location in Copenhagen to talk to the designers about what went through their heads to get the TMA-1s on yours. From the detachable wire on the headphones to the expandable strap designed with the same mechanism as crutches, Aiaiai didn’t leave anything out of the minimalistic TMA-1. Heirloom headphones. Who knew?

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
