When Aiaiai released the TMA-1 DJ headphones, it was all about filling the gap for all the people looking for a great pair of “DJ quality” headphones. The TMA-1 Studio Heaphones pick up where the existing pair left off and take them that final step into the pro audio world. Their are now two types of ear pads(protein leather and PU foam). They’re a little bit more streamlined with the PU headbands–even though they weigh in at 20g more. The EQ curve is more in the frame of reference listening instead of the huge response of the TMA-1 DJ headphones. They were also designed to be comfortable during long listening sessions. In other words, they’re complete overkill for listening to Top 40 music on Spotify from your iPhone or Android… but we want them anyway.
