[st_content_ad]How the AIAIAI TMA-2 HD Headphones Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. These noise-isolating headphones provide stellar sound quality. The TMA-2s are extremely comfortable due to an ultra-soft, trademarked material that pads both the earcups and the headband. These headphones have a high-end cord designed to reduce interference (so you can plug into the entertainment system on a plane or into your phone/computer).
  • Durability: 9/10. These headphones are well made and will stand up to a lot of use. They are part of a modular system, so you can swap out or upgrade individual parts as needed.
  • Portability: 7/10. Although the headphones are bigger than earbuds, the amazing noise isolation and comfort are worth the extra space.
  • Style: 10/10. The TMA-2 HDs look very cool and are a unique choice.

Final Verdict: Get your perfect headphones by customizing a pair from AIAIAI.
