Another day, another headphone, these ones are somehow special not only because of their minimalistic look & feel (which caught our eye in first place) but mainly because it was designed by the guys at KiBiSi and tested by the DJs from Ghostly International….
The TMA-1 (which take the name from Arthur C. Clarke sci-fi novel “2001 space odyssey”) has been tested and tweaked by 28 DJs (including Ghostly’s own Matthew Dear and Seth Troxler), designed as we were saying by KiBiSi and further developed by Tartelet Records, Mannhandle and Thank You For Clapping.
It’s commercialized by the also Danish creative house (now a brand) Aiaiai and was launched earlier this month in Berlin. How much for this beauty?…. 180€ (200$ on the Ghostly store), they’re the ones behind the also superb walkman-inspired Track headphones. The guys at Gizmodo have spent some time playing around with them
