Sound

HIGHLY

DETAILED

AUDIO

The speaker unit contains a diaphragm that is precision-grown from NAC Audio bio-cellulose, making it stiffer, lighter and stronger than regular PET speaker units, and allowing the sound-producing diaphragm to vibrate without the levels of distortion found in other speakers. Each of these qualities results in more accurate and detailed sound from the speaker with the ability to retain clarity of sound at high volumes.

Design

Durable and responsible design to ensure the highest quality and minimize the risk of our products becoming obsolete. With carefully selected materials we reduce our environmental impact. Designed to last is our commitment.

Modularity - designed to last

Since 2010, with the launch of our first headphones, responsible design has been a foundational principle. By designing for longevity, and with modularity so you can upgrade as technology or needs evolve, we extend the functional lifetime of our products.

Responsible materials

We continue to innovate and seek out recycled and better materials. From Alcantara® or vegan leather ear-cushions to our speaker units and packaging made from recycled materials. We contribute by reducing our carbon footprint and create less waste for the planet.

TRUSTING

TMA-2

Kaytranada

Effortlessly bridging the worlds of RnB soul and electronic music the musician DJ remixer and Canadian beatsmith known as Kaytranada is many things but chief among them an extremely talented producer with what already looks set to be an exceptional career ahead of him.

Yaeji

Korean-American producer, vocalist and DJ Kathy Lee, professionally known as Yaeji, has gone from hanging around on the Brooklyn party circuit to festival stage and magazine cover star in just two short years. From her 2016 breakout–a playful cover of Mall Grab’s Guap on Nick Sylvester’s Godmode label, to her performance at Coachella’s packed out Yuma Tent this year, Lee’s skyrocket to global success has been particularly gratifying to watch, when it’s someone who seems to be so unapologetically herself.

Nubya Garcia

Nubya Garcia studied under pianist Nikki Yeoh at Camden Music. She was a member of Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors in her late teens, then completed her training at Trinity Laban. Her debut album, SOURCE, was released August 2020 under the iconic label Concord Jazz. Following her album release, the London-based jazz player debuted on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert, coming off the heels of a Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’ honour and a Rolling Stone ‘Album of the Month’ mention. The New York Times described SOURCE as “a life’s worth of experiences into an hour-long listen.’

Bonobo

When Simon Green first burst onto the scene in 2000 with the ‘Animal Magic’ LP it was a time when words like ‘downtempo’ were frequently thrown about by music journalists and experimental turntablism and crate-dug samples were all the rage among producers. While Bonobo’s immediately recognizable sound has always been indebted to these traditions it has also matured over time into favouring the organic unpredictability of live instrumentation over the post-modern collage of sampling.

Brodinski

Brodinski thumped onto the international scene at the end of his teenage years in 2007. His first release Bad Runner shot him straight onto the crest of the electro-house wave on a level with contemporaries Busy P 2manydjs Tiga and Erol Alkan.

Young Guru

AIAIAI collaborator Young Guru is a Grammy-award winning sound engineer who has worked with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Drake among others. Guru is also a thoughtful educator who rarely wastes an opportunity to drop knowledge on engineering, hip hop and the general state of music at the world’s finest academic institutions.

Rodaidh McDonald

Scottish producer Rodaidh Mcdonald currently works for the legendary XL Recordings where he’s been at the helm of some pretty remarkable records. Ranging from the quiet intensity of Daughter’s ‘If You Leave’ and Savages’ manifest-like debut ‘Silence Yourself’ to King Krule’s critically acclaimed ‘6 Feet Benath the Moon' and The XX’s world-shaking self-titled album Rodaidh’s unique sonic touch permeates a sizable piece of contemporary music’s cutting edge.

Reviews
We Are Crossfader

They stand unique in the market, and we can fully understand why more and more DJs are switching. We’re a big fan of the concept, not only for the benefits brought to the customer but also for the environment. Rather than telling you what you need, AIAIAI allows the DJ to make their custom headphone with minimal fuss. A great situation in which everyone wins.

Major HiFi

I’ve dealt with my share of AIAIAI’s and can personally attest to their quality build and sound.

Resident Advisor

I liked that the TMA-2 system got me away from compromise - rather than finding the best fit I could actually look for the right fit.

Gear Patrol

AIAIAI ensures that the buying process itself is part of the enjoyment, and you get exactly the audio equipment needed for your aural purpose and pleasure.
