I have a straight cable on order so I can pair it with a bright sounding portable amp.

Ugh I keep talking myself down from going over to Best Buy and buying these. I know they have them available, but I really can't justify a $250 headphone purchase when I'm about to move and probably spend a decent amount on new furniture and stuff.

Craigslist is your friend, the headphones are calling to you...

 

Your wallet says: "Go on without me~...."

My wallet ran away from me a while ago.

Alright, I picked these guys up from Best Buy today. Now I have 30 days to decide whether to keep them or save up a bit more money and buy some D2000s and an amp.

Let us know how your impressions go as you use them

Ordered mine a few days ago, hope they'll arrive soon.

I ended up returning the pair I purchased.

 

They were comfortable but I just wasn't crazy about the sound.

I successfully canceled the headphones themselves, but the cable still got to me, and AIAIAI isn't answering my emails about a refund.

Disappointing to hear that these didn't live up to expectations. I was excited for them. I guess I'll have to try them before I can really pass them off as bad though.

well so far I have been successful in making them sound better by playing around with more dampaning material.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't say that they're bad, they're just really not what I was hoping for.

I listened to TMA-1 today at Best Buy- I thought they were so dark they sounded veiled, very disappointed.  If you are looking for great on-ears, definitely audition V-Moda M-80s.  I listened to them at Radio Shack and love their sound signature, range and clarity.  The only reason I didn't buy them is that I am holding out for the circumaural M-100.

so far I have been able too reduce it with putting more dampaning material in the ear cup, once I perfect it I will start a thread and possibly if people send the thread too aiaia then we can get some much better dampaning in the newer productions of it. then it would be worth buying.

To bad these phones were a slight disappointment in the end. I've been looking for a pair of full size headphones and the studios tickled my fancy but reading about the sound on HF there definitely seem to be better headphones out there. However my search for info on the studios led me to the tma-1 which I think I'm gonna order soon. I think their more bassy sound signature will provide a nice contrast to my sennheiser IE 80's.
