Fool's Gold AiAiAi TMA-1 DJ Headphones

The mega-rise of Electronic Dance Music in the past few years has promoted some of the genre's best artists to a level of super stardom only previously known to the likes of Jay-Z, Britney Spears, and Justin Bieber. With the recent collaboration of EDM and Hip Hop, EDM producers like David Guetta and Calvin Harris are becoming just as famous as their Hip Hop counterparts. Dre and 50 Cent have their own brands of headphones so it would make sense that EDM DJs would start creating their own headphones. The world famous DJ spinmaster A-Trak and the other DJs on his Brooklyn based Fool's Gold record label have done just that. Fool's Gold Records includes the likes of Laidback Luke, Flosstradamus, and Chromeo. They have collaborated with AIAIAI, a audio design company, to create a headphone made especially for the hardworking, traveling DJ. 

Changing some of the features of AIAIAI's standard TMA-1 design to suit the needs of a working DJ. The design has a minimalistic and urban look that can go with any DJ set up. As any DJ knows from experience, the most important thing they look for in a pair of headphones (beside the sound quality of course) is its durability. A good DJ is moving just as much as his or her audience and the headphones are constantly coming off and being thrown around, which is why AIAIAI has installed a lock feature into the headset so that they cannot be unplugged by the movements of the DJ. At the end of a show no one wants to be delicate with their equipment, they just want to throw their gear in a bag and go. The headphones flexible nylon material makes it extremely bendable and hard to break making it perfect not just for DJ's but also for any type of fast moving traveler. Check out the videos below for more information behind the special headphones.
