I'd call them cups as my ears (Dunno if I just have tiny ears) fit entirely in them the same as with my K550s. The headband also is very clearly more padded than originals judging from the pictures of the originals I have seen.

Hahaha, I agree - I want to know how they are asap, so I can order some from a best buy in the states, then cross the border to pick them up.

 

Give us some good details tomorrow!

I just started reading about the TMA-1 yesterday and now I see this. My wallet...I'm sorry.

post #26 of 99

I work at a best buy in Austin, Texas and just yesterday snagged a pair of TMA 1 Studios. First high end pair of head of phones I've purchased and I'm really impressed. I don't have a DAC or any sort of headphone amplifier but running them through my sony receiver reveals very little (if any) distortion when cranked. There were also (seemingly new) beatport editions of the regular TMA 1s on the sales floor.

Ok, I've been listening to them on and off over the last 24 hours.  I'll do the best to give my impression of them:

 

My initial impression of them is that they sound decent. Like some others, I wasn't overly impressed out of the box. What struck me most after plugging them in for the first time was the bass. The bass is definitely there and strong.  In fact, I think it is the strong point of the headphones.  It's deep and rich, which is nice but I think a tad muddy for me. I just prefer a tighter bass. 

 

The mids are fine, nothing special to note about them.  They are present and sound nice. Don't know what much else to say here. 

 

Like others have said, the treble is definitely rolled off. I kind of miss it. I have EQ'd it on the machines I've been using it on, and I can manage to bring it up so it sounds good. Not sure if it will even out with some break in. 

 

Overall, the sound is good quality and clear.  They definitely don't sound like cheap headphones. But as a whole, the sound is a bit loose. Not really cohesive and tight. They are fun to listen to and don't really fatigue your ears as they don't really have any sharp or piercing frequencies. 

 

These headphones however, are extremely comfortable.  They are light and feel great on my head. With the foam cups, I can listen for hours and because of the shape of the cups,  they don't really touch your ear. The leather-ish cups press against my ear and hurt a bit after about an hour or so of listening. 

 

In conclusion (for now),  I really wanted to love these headphones.  I think the they sound decent and I want to give a follow up opinion after about a week of listening.  Hopefully after some breaking in,  my concerns will be gone.

 

I did an unboxing video as well: http://youtu.be/Pw4S0GeFcaw
