Both pads are comfy, the TMA-1 don't have overly much clamping force. Way less than the HD25, for example.

The outside is rubbery, not hard, so it should be basically scratch-resistant. They were made for drunk and/or stoned DJs, after all. Lenovo/IBM notebooks have a similar finish.

Me too. Luckily the cable is replaceable, and the connector at the ear cup is a standard 3.5mm plug. So either AIAIAI might release a straight cord, or one could very easily whip one up themselves (which is what I'm going to do today or tomorrow).

I think other brands use that standard approach as well, so there might actually be some fitting cables already available.

I can't say more about their sound quality, need to spend a few weeks before I can give a real verdict. But for the looks alone they're more than worth it, IMO - they are definitely my favorite looking cans so far. In reality they're just as awesome to look at (and touch) as on the photos.

Isolation with the pleather pads is decent enough, already used them on the crowded street today. The foam pads isolate way less.

I assume you mean the Rosetta song? That's a good one, indeed.

From Music you have in common includes Darkspace, Electric Wizard, Blut aus Nord, Alcest and God Is an Astronaut. - nice improvement since I looked last.
