We have been fans of the AiAiAi brand ever since we first strapped them on a couple years ago. Both the TMA-1 DJ and Studios are remarkable headphones and have been the go tos for many big name DJs and produces since their inception. So we are of course really excited to see the evolution of this product with its new modular approach. We will hopefully be getting our hands on a review unit in the coming weeks to get you a more up close look and breakdown. Until then we have the official press release for the new TMA-2 headphones below along with their new product video.
Until then, here is today’s official press release.
AiAiAi Official Press Release
Today sees the launch of a new headphone concept called TMA-2 Modular.
Developed from the TMA-1 series and providing a vast range of interchangeable options across sound, function, comfort and design, the TMA-2 Modular System, lets you create your own personalised headphone, while enabling a quick and easy change of individual parts along the way.
TMA-2 Modular is a framework of elements, including speaker unit, headband, earpad and cable, which can be connected or combined in different ways. With their latest project, AIAIAI have created the next step for the 21st century headphone: a framework consisting of modular audio technology, which gives you the freedom to personalize according to your own unique requirements. Hence, elements relating to exceptional sound, functional design and comfort are the building blocks that make up the TMA-2 Modular system.
Individualization, longevity and adaptability
The TMA-1 headphone family has evolved into a new interchangeable infrastructure. Mirroring an overall design tendency of individualization, longevity and interaction, TMA-2 Modular takes the concept of modularity and applies it creatively to the world of headphones. In this way, the concept doesn’t introduce one single updated headphone: AIAIAI’s new project provides 360 different configuration possibilities. For music professionals this means the opportunity to adapt and tailor the system to a given creative context, from studio production or audio editing, to DJing or listening on the move. For everyone else it means the subtle dissolution of categories; the freedom to be yourself. This can be seen in the specially designed TMA-2 Modular website, which can be viewed here.
Frederik Jorgensen, Co-Founder, AIAIAI:
"The Modular system creates the ultimate flexibility for our business and our customers as well as a more creative way of interacting with our products. This adaptable, versatile approach to our headphones offers radical new opportunities for future product development, enabling us to expand the system to create better options for our users and the potential for further collaborations with our key artist and label partners.”
A new trajectory for headphone design, the TMA-2 Modular brings a user-friendly means to synthesize from a wealth of components. The customer now takes centre stage and becomes the creator of his or her headphone experience.
