  • Design

    Main focus in designing the TMA-1 has been to develop a design that on one hand is icon of headphones and on the other hand works and looks like a tool for the user. The design approach has been to clean out as much as possible in the design and focus on exaggerating the details that are necessary to make the design work technical and visual. We have designed with a focus on cohesive relations between the different elements in the headphones. A relation that makes the design appears as a whole with the same DNA controlling every move in the design. No nonsense and straight up.

    Why TMA-1

    The name TMA-1 is taken from Stanley Kubricks' science fiction movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". TMA-1 (Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1) refers to the apparent magnetic irregularity found at the Tycho crater on the Moon's surface by American astronauts. A black Monolith buried 40 feet under the lunar surface causes the anomaly. In the background to the story in the book, an ancient an unseen alien race uses mechanisms with the appearance of large crystal Monoliths to investigate worlds all across the galaxy and, if possible, to encourage the development of intelligent life. The monoliths are extremely long-lived and reliable machines and resist destructive testing beyond the theoretical limits of material strength. We thought this name was fitting for our rugged, all black DJ headphone.

    Testers

    A very important part of the TMA-1 development is the thorough integration of DJs in testing and modifying the product. This lead user driven approach to development has given valuable insights.
    The list of DJs is as follows: Tiga, James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Hot Chip, DJ Koze, Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y), Booka Shade, Erol Alkan, Claude von Stroke, A-Trak, 2MANYDJS, Prins Thomas, MSTRKRFT, Trentemøller, Matthew Dear, Seth Troxler, RJD2, Brodinski, Pilooski, Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, Kode9, Michael Mayer, Superpitcher, Luciano.

    Headband

    The one piece TMA-1 headband is designed to provide the functionality of a DJ-headphone headband but also to strip it down to the bare essentials. This ensures a stronger and more durable product, which can take daily use for a considerable length of time. By combining the design with a strong, durable and flexible nylon material, a full flexibility when wearing and positioning the headphones during DJing is ensured. Moreover, The flexibility of the nylon material makes sure that the headband always returns to the original shape.
    Cushions: The TMA-1 design also takes the different situations in which headphones are used into account - from the hectic, noisy club environment, to long studio sessions or just being on the road. The TMA-1 offers a selection of easily changeable and different cushions - Each cushion is connected to a specially designed cushion plate.

    Filter

    The TMA-1 cushion plate protects the electronics. It comes with a dust proof mesh, which keeps dust and small objects from going into the vital and more sensitive speaker parts. The speaker housing cover front is made in a light and shape resistant ABS material (also known from the LEGO bricks) with imbedded silicone rings that clamp onto the cushion plate pins for a secure fit.
    Speakers: The iron lungs of the TMA-1 use advanced driver materials from the voice coil, to the yoke, to the magnet and to the speaker diaphragm. These thoroughly tested materials ensure the richest sound available today, based on the most durable driver technology. This makes the TMA-1 achieve the impeccable sound design, which is, of course, further cultivated by the team of test DJs and sound technicians.

    Isolation

    For isolation the headphone is lined with 3mm cotton fiber filter - The main function of the filter is to absorb the reflection of the internal soundwaves in the speaker housing and transfer only the intended sound waves to the listener. But the filter also has the function of eliminating most possible external noise functions to work this low tech dual function with no batteries needed.
    Headphone cup: The back of the speaker housing cover is made in a light and shape resistant ABS material with a jet black rubber coating, designed to protect the fragile parts. This also reproduces the best possible conditions for the speaker and it implements the functionality of fitting the TMA-1 with the simple click release function.

    Cable

    The 1.5 meter cable transfers the sound to the TMA-1 and it comes with a mini jack connection in both ends, as well as a reinforced plug with a 1/8 adapter option at the end of the wire, which connects to the source. The cable has a 0.4 meter coil on the wire, which gives extra length and flexibility at the turntable without creating the possibility of stepping on the wire or the jack being pulled out during a session. The TMA-1´s come packaged with a three button in-line remote which is for For music control and a microphone for calls and Apple FaceTime,
