The TMA-2 headphone system uses modular audio technology to create the right solution for your specific needs and preferences. This platform is an evolution of the popular TMA-1 family created by the Danish company 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.” said Frederik Jorgensen, co-founder of AIAIAI.
This platform uses four main modules: you can select your speaker units, your headband, your earpads and your cable type.
The TMA-2 modular components comprise four speaker units, engineered with a neodymium magnet or with a titanium coated driver, to get the tonality you prefer. You can choose between three solutions of headbands with different materials and cushion types, five earpads with a range of designs and materials (microfiber, PU leather or velour) with “on-ear” or “over-ear” cushions and five cables (also with a microphone compatible with most smartphones) lengths up to 6 meters.
This system offers customers 360 possible combinations. You can, also, choose pre-configured setup created by artist recommendations. You can select your headphones based on your specific use or choose your configuration based on your music preferences. On the official website is, also, available an online interactive guide to create a custom product.
If a module becomes defective or you want to modify an existing headphones, new components can be purchased and old ones simply swapped out to adapt and configure the TMA-2 to your evolving needs.
This modular system is already available on the AIAIAI official website. The prices vary depending on your choices. The cheapest is the “All-Round preset” (€145/$155).
