TMA-1 Studio specs

OMG, so I have been looking for some good headphones for sound editing for ages.  AIAIAI has come out with TMA-1 STUDIO, which is designed specifically for the on-the-go producer/musician, perfect for me.  Plus it looks beautiful. What I'm using at the moment is really not good enough so I can't wait to get my hands on the TMA-1 STUDIO. 




* 40mm titanium driver, which has been tweaked for a more neutral, reference listening-friendly sound

* Over-ear PU cushions that makes details stand out in full clarity 

* PU headband padding, which is softer, more durable and extra comfortable to wear over longer production sessions.

The new studio headphones from AIAIAI thus represent robust and thoroughly crafted audio technology for the frequently traveling, professional DJ/ producer who needs headphones that can perform while on the road, at the airport or in the air.
