Minimalist and Retro Headphones from Denmark
Urbanears’ minimalist headphones look great, but they sound like ass. Check out these TMA-1 around-the-ear ‘phones from AIAIAI from Denmark. They supposedly sound much better than Urbanears’, but at the same time, they’re much more pricey - they go for a whopping $250. As classy as these are, I’d have to take a set of Shure SRH840s for that cost.
Also, check out their Tracks series of over-the-ear headphones that take a cue from the ones that came with the Sony Walkman back in the ’80s. These ones will set you back a modest $70.
