Our DJ headphone has just been nominated at this year's prestigious Designs of The Year Awards held by The Design Museum in London. Needless to say, we're proud to be included in a list that counts a wide array of quality design.

Our friends at KiBiSi are nominated in the product category with our TMA-1 and we're thrilled, to say the least.
