Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"-- terrible cord connection or the cable lock, it is hard to twist and connected."
_
"But, the headband breaks, the cable will start to fail and the right speaker will eventually die."
_
"I believe the TMA-1s have a fatal flaw in the headphone cable connecting mechanism as well as the long term durability in the headband."
_
"Very robust coiled cable and angled plug, plus the locking mechanism."
_
"The swappable cable (coiled DJ cable or inline mic cable) is a really nice touch, however I have to always twist it to make sure it's secure, as I've had it fall out a few times while DJ'ing."
_
"No tangle cord make them easy to use."

Design

Design:
"Design is something I was worried about when I first ordered it, but I think its actually a very nice looking set of cans."
_
"The bad: The single-piece design is somewhat uncomfortable for long listening sessions, bass heavy profile not for all genres of musicOverall: Great headphones."
_
"*The comfortable ear pads are nice (on a hot day they make my ears sweaty, but that's probably a fault of my physiology more than of design) and the headband is soft enough not to bother."
_
"--The Cons:--* The pegs-in-spaced-holes design for the headphone height adjustment seems flimsy after a month of use, though I'm not sure if this is by design or not."
_
"It's a very cool design that does away with the weakest point of all other headphones."
_
"The on the ear design, while initially feeling really weird, gets comfortable very quickly and these cans block a lot more outside noise than I had thought they would."
_
"Love every thing about them to their unique design, derability, and sound."
_
"These headphones do a good job for what they're designed for, which is DJing."
_
"PROS: great sound, built like a tank, elegant design, interchangeable cord, L-shaped jack, great isolationCONS: the headband is already starting to peel, after only minimal use."
_
"They are well made and sturdy with a design that can easily be deconstructed and modified should you ever need to replace or upgrade a driver."
_
"(Tycho Magnetic Anomaly 1)--- Cons ---- The peg-in-hole design makes it difficult to get a perfect fit, as you have to use the increments they have pre-determined- Finding the right EQ setting takes some time, (as the soundstage straight out of the box is neutral) but it is completely worth it."

Fit

Fit:
"Of course, there is the problem of the loose fitting and hard headband, but these downsides are easily overlooked."
_
"The headband again...it fits so loose that I was worried about them falling off."
_
"Easy fit over the head."
_
"And they fits great."
_
"Biggest concerns are the fit and comfort."
_
"They are perfect for this.. and rugged and tight fit on the ears for proper positioning in the mix."
_
"These headphones have great sound and comfortable fit."

Listening

Listening:
"The bad: The single-piece design is somewhat uncomfortable for long listening sessions, bass heavy profile not for all genres of musicOverall: Great headphones."
_
"I would not recommend these for general listening."
_
"Although these may look really cool and you may be tempted to use them for everyday listening, they may not be the best option for such listening."
_
"Listening pleasure isn't so much the aim of these as listening fidelity which in my opinion makes finding well produced and mastered music that much more enjoyable."
_
"Great for DJ'ing, casual listening, producing, etc."
_
"I was very surprised to find that these headphones actually sound good in the DJ booth and on the couch while doing some casual listening."
_
"After listening to these headphones for a few days (pretty much non-stop) all I have to say is wow."

Music

Music:
"Since they are an on-ear design, they do tend to cause fatigue on your ears (and the top of your head) after prolonged use (2+ hours straight).While I enjoy the sound of these for the genre of music I enjoy, I cannot recommend them."
_
"If you aren't looking to challenge your ears and your understanding of music then these may not be what you're looking for, the popular ATH-M50x headphones are better suited for casual listening as they temper the output a bit (while still providing a near reference sound) and are arguably more comfortable being over the ear style."
_
"Listening pleasure isn't so much the aim of these as listening fidelity which in my opinion makes finding well produced and mastered music that much more enjoyable."
_
"Their sound is perfect for most of the music I like, and it has a good space to it."
_
"However I believe that this gives them a uniqueness that I enjoy, especially pertaining to electronic and pop music."
_
"The sounds signature is not for everyone, but if you listen to electronic heavy music as I do, you should enjoy these (however avoid for detailed acoustic, rock, classical music, etc)."

Quality

Quality:
"But the build quality sucks, my TMA-1s headband broke after 5 months of use."
_
"Really good sound quality, perfect for DJing and even producing in your problem."
_
"I was telling my friend how good they have been to me and that very night at my gig I stretched the headband past its limit and it broke): I do not blame the product quality but just be careful with that because I am constantly manipulating the headphones on and off my ears with my hands and shoulders."
_
"I have enjoyed sound quality, but after 6 months of use at my desk the headband broke."
_
"Durability: I've dropped these more times than I'd care to admit and they've held up to that along with plenty of trips at the bottom of a backpack, definitely good build quality."
_
"The only good thing about these headphones is the sound quality, which is only useful if the headphones are usable."
_
"Excellent construction and Quality sound."
_
"The sound is great, isolation is medium, but with such a poor build quality, I wouldn't buy."
_
"Pros:The sound quality of these headphones is fantastic."

Sound

Sound:
"Since they are an on-ear design, they do tend to cause fatigue on your ears (and the top of your head) after prolonged use (2+ hours straight).While I enjoy the sound of these for the genre of music I enjoy, I cannot recommend them."
_
"While I enjoy the sound coming from these headphones, I can no longer recommend them to anyone."
_
"well....i was wrong, it has nothing to do with showing off, it has nothing to do with practicality, its about the sound."
_
"Likewise, there is nothing missing on the sound spectrum, despite the present bass, and the mids and highs are actually quite beautiful, with very good separation and blending, as each song demands."
_
"These headphones are superb, out of the box they sounded a little distant, but after they broke in for a few hours the sound started to really come out."
_
"Other headphones i've tried:Beats Studio (bassy, but cheap, painful, and artificial sounding)Bose QC15 (great noise canceling, terrible sound)Sennheiser HD428 (lightest i've ever used)Bowers & Wilkins P5 (painful to wear)Klipsch Image One (clamping force too great, sounds ok)Roc Nation Aviator (sound pretty good, won't fit larger heads)Sony Super Bass (muddy sound)__________________"

"Unsure what to write here as I find these excellent headphones... well made... beautful sound.... the type of headphones that would probably last for years and years also......"
