TMA-2 Modular represents a new approach to headphone design, offering users the chance to modify their headphones with different parts to create their own optimum set depending on the intended listening environment (opening up 360 possible combinations)
Copenhagen-based audio design company AIAIAI has launched a new headphone concept called TMA-2 Modular. Providing a vast range of interchangeable options across sound, function, comfort and design, TMA-2 Modular is a state-of-the-art system developed from the TMA-1 series that lets you create your own personalised headphone - while enabling a quick and easy change of individual parts along the way. Modular is a framework of elements, including the 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.

After upgrading a bit, these are amazing !!
When you spend hours mixing at night, with headphones on because you don't wanna wake up others, you want something that feels nice on your ears. Although these sound great, a comfort upgrade was necessary, and, because they're modular, I was able to swap out all the parts and upgrade them. I started with the default wired pair, but upgraded to the wireless headband, and the most unbelievably comfortable 2 inch thick pads. I can't remember what the material is called, but they remain cool around your ears, even after wearing them for hours.
Sound-wise, they really do the business. They are honest, very balanced , flat response, uncoloured reference cans and so great at what they do. No studio reference headphones will ever perfectly recreate the experience you get from speakers because the right ear can't hear what the left ear hears, when wearing headphones, and vice versa, but its very easy to get an accurate tonal mix with these, and I wouldn't switch to any other brand now. The charge is awesome too. 2 hours of charge lasts for 16 hours of wireless freedom. Fantastic headphones !!!

Perfect indoor and less noisy environment headphone
Young Guru edition have much higher highs than standard TMA-1, can be overwhelming at higher volume. The TMA-2 Studio Monitor Preset (S03- E04) are amazing truly for indoor monitoring, for live club gigs I still prefer the original preset (S02-E02). Will try out the S01 with E02 for noisy club environment soon.
Had the TMA Studio Pros for over a year
These headphones are real value for money. The sound quality for electronic musicians is not hyped and has a very honest bottom end to them plus there great in a dj performance. Also they are a lovely looking pair phones.
