The AIAIAI TMA-2 HD Wireless headphones are a high-end choice for music listening on the move. Featuring an S05 speaker unit, H05 Bluetooth headband, and E08 Alacantara earpads, these headphones provide comfort and quality.
AIAIAI headphones are modular, so you can upgrade the components to your ideal fit, feel, and sound profile. All of this makes them a premium quality choice for music professionals or audio connoisseurs. The TMA-2 comes with Aptx HD wireless audio transmitted in 24-bit quality, using Bio-Cellular drivers, giving a clear and detailed sound. The sound truly stands above other over-ear headphones in its price bracket. You are paying a premium, but the modular options allow for later upgrades or replacement of the parts as you choose.
The TMA-2 headphones are very comfortable to wear. I tested them on a long coach ride and was impressed by the soft, light touch of the Alcantara material and memory foam padding. Alcantara is also environmentally friendly, which is part of the AIAIAI commitment to sustainability. Along with the modular options which extend the life of the headphones, this is an attractive feature for me.

I like that the headband is the Bluetooth unit, with cables to connect to the modular S05 speaker units. It allows for more comfortable weight distribution for longer listening sessions. The headband is the H05 option, which features a built-in microphone and provides excellent audio recording quality. The headband charges via USB-C, which is harder to find at the moment with less premium headphones. It offers 16 hours of playback, which lasts me a few days of commuting before I have to find a plug for charging. Additionally, the E08 earpads are incredibly comfortable and provide isolation from the outside world that means you can focus on your listening experience. There is an option to choose the E04 over-ear leather cushions if you prefer that style and feel.
I would like to see a little more padding on the headband, but that may be due to the size of my head. I find that with most headphones I need them on the smallest setting for comfort, so perhaps a bit more adjustability would come in handy. The controls take some practice. The best part of these headphones is that they are designed to last, and when parts eventually degrade, you can replace them instead of buying an entirely new pair.
