Embracing a strikingly minimalist aesthetic, Danish audiophile innovators Aiaiai have released the hotly-anticipated TMA-1 headphones.  Inspired by Arthur C. Clarke’s '2001: A Space Odyssey' for its name, TMA-1 (“Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1”) refers to a monolith that is able to ‘resist destructive testing beyond the theoretical limits of material strength,’ hence the parallel with Aiaiai’s robust-looking offering.

Having been professionally tested by the likes of Flying Lotus and James Murphy, its performance quality is as assured as its unapologetic matte black silhouette.
