When Aiaiai released the TMA-1 headphones in 2010, the headphone was a pleasant surprise. Tuned for DJs, the headphones produced audio better than anyone expected, and it had a design that was as durable as it was stylish. Now, Aiaiai is back with the TMA-1 Studio, a headphone similar at its core, but tweaked with the travelling producer in mind. Is it good enough for the rest of us to justify the extra $50?

We, the smartphone-and-MP3-addicted people, wear headphones from dusk till dawn. That means they've got to be comfortable for hours on end. Forget the bulk of fashion-forward full-sized cans and the irritation of earbuds — for headphones that go the distance, three qualities trump everything else: comfort, durability, practicality.
Designed by DJs for DJs, Aiaiai's TMA-1 rugged headphones have all of the bass and sensitivity needed to be heard in a club, without the overt branding. And for non-turntablists, they work very well on the road too.
I'm constantly searching for The Pair of over-ear headphones, so I'm pretty chuffed that after months of stunning teaser photos the TMA-1 'phones by Aiaiai have finally gone on sale - for about $US250.
