AIAIAI headphones…

These  TMA-1 headphones from the dj minded designer AIAIAI and Kibisi were designed with durability in mind.  Flexible headband, coiled chord and ear pads customizable to your noise environment mean these guys were made to go from prep session to club on a daily basis.  Aptly named for its durability…

The name TMA-1 (Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1) is taken from Arthur C. Clarke’s science fiction novel “2001: A Space Odyssey” and refers to a black Monolith, which is extremely long-lived and reliable,  just as the TMA-1.

Check the specs:

Gotta love the brand name “AIAIAI”

like the calls of a good dancehall (or some recent dubstep sample…)
