Headphones

251 posts in this topic

Okay, I've got DJ/production headphones but they'd look a bit weird if I was to rock them on the street.

Can you guys recommend decent headphones for wearing on road or whatever?

Preferably closed back so I can use them in the library/labs

just for fashion? what do your current headphones look like?

i always thought the Beats ranged looked quite slick (especially the white Solos)

any of the subtler Senheissers dont draw to much attention either/

It just depends on how much looks are important to you over sound.

AIAIAI: TMA-1 Headphones

Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1

The name TMA-1 refers to the extremely long-lived, black monolith mentioned in Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2001 - A Space Odyssey - a fitting name for this rugged, matte-black and incredibly reliable headphone.

Technical Specifications:

- Driver Unit Size: 40 mm

- Impedance: 32 Ohm

- Load Rating: 0.1 W

- Frequency Response: 20 to 20,000 Hz

- Total Harmonic Distortion: less than 0.3%

- Speaker Sensitivity: 110 +/- 3dB

As tested and used by:

Hudson Mohawke / Kode 9 / Superpitcher / Ellen Allien / Seth Troxler / Matthew Dear / Michael Mayer / Koze / James Murphy / Hot Chip / Luciano / Trentemoller

Overview:

The TMA-1 is made in collaboration with 25 professional and renowned DJs including Warp's own Hudson Mohawke.

The one-piece headband is made of a strong, durable and pliant matte nylon material, which provides full flexibility when wearing and positioning the headphones during DJing, and at the same time renders the TMA-1 virtually unbreakable. The inner parts are sheltered by the headphone-cup made out of a resistant ABS material. The 40mm dual-diaphragm high-definition drivers deliver high definition, full-spectrum sound providing you with crystal clarity and an accurate sound on all frequencies..

Features:

- 0mm dual-diaphragm drivers deliver high-definition sound

- Two types of ear cushions - 1 pair in memory foam and 1 pair in lambskin to reduce background noise and enable a low bass response

- Frame in resistant ABS material and flexible nylon headband for durability

- 1.7 meter cable with a mini jack connection in both ends as well as a reinforced plug with a 1/8 adapter option

- 0.4 meter coil on the wire, which gives extra length and flexibility at the turntables

- Custom designed Kevlar-reinforced cables and 45 degree plugs

- Three-button remote and inline 3-button microphone to adjust the volume and control music playback

- Compatible with the latest Macs and other audio recording applications

- 24k gold-plated plug for enhanced contact and sound clarity

What's in the box?

- 2 sets of earpads

- Carrying case

- 1.7 meter cable

- 6.3 mm stereo plug converter

Quotes:

"Really good sounding sturdy headphones. Probably the best on the market...", Hudson Mohawke

"In general they're louder and more focused than my beloved HD25s, and that's great. They're also nice and smooth without being flat. I like the options of cable and ear cushion as well.", James Murphy

"I'm using them as my main DJ headphones now...", Kode 9

Already our favourite model in the market within the Bleep office - the best new headphones around and a must for any DJ.

£175 (UK) / €200 (EU) / $230 (ROW) (all prices include registered shipping)

I've got HD25s, and they're just not suitable for wearing out.

Those Bose ones look decent but I'd prefer something below £60 for the while.

Anyone tried any of the Sennheiser PX range?

Yeah, Beats you are mostly paying for the hype and good looks rather than sound quality (which is still decent).

There is much better bang for your buck sound wise.

I'd rather get some Gradios if it was just about sound quality.

reckon the beats solo are utter sh*t, the studio are still not great. Very unbalanced and overkill with the bass. but depends if u care about them bein neutral.

Sound is nice through beats but they are so flimsy it's not worth the price tag at all.

I just have these
