My TMA-1 has arrived today and first impression are that sounds a bit better than HD-25 on my ears, the finish and packaging are exquisite and when you pick up the headphones in your hands feels kinda like velvet.

 

Sound wise (it has been only one afternoon so far), couldn't be more impressed. I still waiting my uDAC 2 to have a proper go, but the mid range tones are clear and the bass are super rounded and pleasant crystal clear even on high volumes. I am very pleased about this headphones so far, I toy around a little bit more and post more impressions here.

I'm suprised these are kind of under the radar within the head-fi community. I'm looking forward to further impressions. :)

I certainly don't work or know anyone at AIAIAI, that is for sure.

I'm quite impressed with the TMA-1 so far, for a closed can headphones anyhow. I am not a audiophile or even have got that much knowledge of hi-fi headphone, I am a newbie trying to learn a thing or two, so you might get my opinions with a grain of salt.

 

I'm looking forward to my NuForce uDAC-2 to arrive to give a proper go. A few more impressions follow:

— Sound isolation is SUPERB, even on very low volume levels. I do think you may take this as a given since is a DJ oriented headphones.

— No sound leakage on normal volume levels. I tend to listen to music on (I guess) average volume, and I have asked some colleagues at the office to test the headphones while I was pay attention to sound leakage.

— It is a very comfortable headphone, but after 3-3.5 hours starts to bother a little bit, not much different from the HD-25 1 for me, but a little bit better.

 

I haven't test it listen to music direct from my iPhone 4 yet, only on my MacBook Pro direct from the headphone out. (most of the music that I've been listen to are iTunes Plus, in particular the new Arcade Fire, Best Coast, Menomena and Pantha du Prince)

Ditto. I'm curious, what pads come in the box? They talk about the option to swap them out depending on usage (foam, faux leather, etc), but I didn't see any other options within the store. All included, or expect them later down the road?

It comes with a faux leather and a foam in the box. I am not sure they are going to sell pads on future, but they might do since they sell accessories/extras for the current models on their online shop.

Would these require a portable amp?  Being compared to the HD25, would it be a major upgrade in SQ? (Worth the trouble?)

Hi everyone,

 

I'm new to the Head-Fi community where I found some very reliable and deep reviews.

 

I was looking for new on-ear headphones that I could use with my iPod while commuting, at work and at home to play electric guitar quietly. Anyway, I almost bought a pair of HD-25 II until I found these TMA-1. I couldn't resist and I bought one pair yesterday from the manufacturer website (promo code valide until TODAY (11th August) : 06101ww).

 

I should be receiving them sometimes next week (someone at DKK sent me an email to tell that the first batch of TMA-1 was sold-out and that they should receive another one this Friday). I'll write a brief review with photos.

 

Disclaimer: I do not work or know anyone at DKK...

 

Regards,

So anyone have these yet that can compare to other headphones?  They look pretty sleek.  I would be interested in a comparison to the Ultrasone 780s but I'll take whatever I can get.
