TMA-2 Modular Headphones goes wireless
Danish audio company AIAIAI will now launch the H05, a new smart headband for their TMA-2 Modular Headphone System, on Kickstarter.
It is the first major upgrade to the TMA-2 Modular – a Bluetooth headband that adds wireless functionality to any configuration of the system. By integrating the Bluetooth technology into the headband only, AIAIAI enable any configuration of the TMA-2 speaker unit to be wireless, and thereby retain full modularity in the system, but enabling high quality Bluetooth audio transmission.
“At first, we intuitively focused on creating a new speaker to introduce wireless technology to the system. But that felt wrong somehow, as it would be limiting to have only a few wireless sound configurations. That’s why we came up with this idea of integrating the Bluetooth module into the headband, to maintain that 100% modularity.” – Head of New Product Development, Christian B. Lorentzen
For those who don’t know about the TMA-2, it’s the world’s most extensive modular headphone system – with more than 1000 possible configurations. This modularity means users / DJs / Producers can create their own unique, personalized AIAIAI product that fits their specific needs and adapt / tailor the system to a creative context; from studio production and audio editing to DJing or listening on the move.
The Kickstarter Campaign will allow backers to receive up to 50% off either the headband alone or a complete wireless TMA-2 configuration when they support the project.
The headband has the following controls: Play, Pause, Skip, Volume, and Answer Call.
Any cable from the TMA-2 Modular Headphone System can be inserted into the speaker unit for cabled audio, bypassing the Bluetooth in the H05 headband when required.
The integrated CSR 8675 Bluetooth chip is ready for software implementation, facilitating further future upgrades.
