The Aiaiai TMA-1's name takes inspiration from "2001: A Space Odyssey," which may be your dad's favorite movie from his youth. These $200 headphones cut a stripped-down physical profile with no joints to weaken their structural durabilit, and their solid construction is backed by a detailed headstage that makes them an excellent candidate for dads shopping for a stylish headset and neutral tonality for mixing music.

The good: Aiaiai's full-sized monitoring headphones are suitable for DJs and music lovers alike. They are built to last, with an expandable rubberized wire and a robust, one-piece design.
The bad: There's no material to cushion the thin rubber headband, which can lead to fatigue after long periods of use.
The bottom line: The sleek TMA-1 headphones by Aiaiai are ideal for traveling DJs who need tough headphones with an up-front, bass-slamming sound profile.
