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. Stats for Monolithic Headphones Trending: Older & Average
