Get ready to hit the decks

The TMA-2 DJ headphones from AIAIAI are designed specifically for DJs and represent a fusion of the most ideal elements from the Danish manufacturer's catalogue: High-quality S02 drivers with 40mm speaker diaphragms, a rugged and comfortable H02 headband, E02 on-ear cups with PU leather cushions, and a C02 coiled black 1.5m thermo plastic cable. The latter features a 3.5mm jack connector, which can be expanded for 6.3mm connections using the threaded adapter that - together with an A01 protective pouch - is included in the scope of delivery. An impressive roster of professional users that includes Richie Hawtin, Marcel Dettman, Bonobo, and Charlotte de Witte is ample testament to how well this design works in practical application.

Detail of AIAIAI TMA-2 DJ headphones with modular design

Rugged and versatile design

DJs need headphones to line up their next tracks and set the mix correctly, which of course means that these need a robust construction that will stand up to being constantly put on and taken off as well as to plenty of moving about behind the DJ booth. The TMA-2 DJ headphones are designed for precisely these conditions: The adjustable headband is made to provide an excellent grip and is extremely durable and flexible, while the on-ear memory foam cushions ensure a snug and comfortable fit as well as a high level of isolation. What is more, the design makes it easy to wear just one of the ear cups for monitoring purposes. To help keep things tidy, the cable - which can be extended from 1.5m to 3.2m - is connected on one side only and, thanks to the aforementioned 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter, makes the TMA-2 DJ suitable for use with mixing desks and playback devices in both professional and home entertainment applications.

For a punchy and intense sound

As practical as its design may be, the TMA-2 DJ's priority is still the sound. The headphones' low-resistance, dynamic 40mm S02 drivers with their lightweight membranes made from stiff bio-cellulose (which also has an additional titanium coating) provide a balanced and high-fidelity sound representation that has outstanding clarity and resonance and is extremely free of distortion. The TMA-2 DJ headphones are also designed with an internal vent that is tuned to provide a clear and punchy middle bass response. At the same time, this on-ear system delivers up to 117dB SPL, making it perfect for use in loud club environments.



The Danish company AIAIAI was founded in 2006 and produces headphones exclusively. Instead of offering a wide variety of different headphone models, Aiaiai has developed a modular approach, by which components are individually selected in order to create a final, customised product. To this end, AIAIAI has an online configurator which tailors each pair of headphones to the customer’s specifications. However, the idea is not only to create personalised headphones but also to ensure their sustainability. Instead of the user having to purchase a completely new pair of headphones if a defect occurs or if their application or sonic expectations change, AIAIAI offers its customers replacement, retrofit, and upgrade parts.

Expdandable and sustainable headphones for DJs

The TMA-2 DJ's target audience is already clear from the name, and AIAIAI has its sights on both professional DJs and discerning users in general here. The on-ear design ensures a high sound pressure level together with consistent sound quality and high isolation, and also makes these headphones easy to handle and comfortable to wear even for long periods. What is more, all of the TMA-2 DJ's component parts can be exchanged and replaced if necessary, and users can of course purchase other components (including different ear cups and wireless systems) in order to adapt the headphones to suit other applications. And it goes without saying that these headphones are an excellent choice for simply listening to music for pleasure.

Crisp sound with great isolation
DJ Badger 02.04.2024
This is the second pair of AIAIAI DJ headphones I have bought. The first pair were stolen from a gig and I wanted the exact same ones again as I have been very happy with them. They fit tight on the head which initially is a bit uncomfortable but reassuring they will not slip when using on one ear for mixing. The sound is good - crisp with tight bass and good isolation from the room when both ears are covered. I like the design - clean lines, simple and stylish looking.
The only downsides for me are that the price almost doubled since I last bought a pair which made me think twice (but went ahead in the end) and also the first pair I bought arrived with a hard case whereas now only a soft bag is provided and there doesn;t seem to be another option.

Bad Sounding Heaphones (do not believe the marketing)
Eento 09.01.2023
These headphones with "modular design" do not feel that cheap considering that each piece is a replaceable module.

When on your head you can ear the plastic of the earpad (like if they were not well plugged) but since they seal strong on your hear this do not impact directly the sound (but can alter the sound during abrupt movements). The bad part of this hard sealing/hold (to mask the plastic issue?) make these headphones not the most comfortable...

The sound is where these heaphones perform really bad, the low are slow and not punchy at all, the mid range is muffled and the mid/high ends soundstage is just not present. The overall sound quality is surprisingly just bad.

My experience around DJ and Studio headphones are various: Audio Technica ATH-MX50, Sennheiser HD-25, AKG 701 & 702, Beyerdynamics DT770 Pro & DT700 Pro X & DT 880, Audeze LCD-X (2021), Sennheiser IE 600, Moondrop blessing.

I do not recommend these headphones and rather recommend these options:
1. Sennheiser HD-25 sounds the best for DJ even if more fragile and the most comfortable (the cables always have connection issues after some times)
2. Audio Technica ATH-MX50 sounds good and are comfortable but are more bulky

DJ Kopfhörer mit Vor- und Nachteilen
Komabase 26.02.2023
Habe den Kopfhörer nun einige Monate testen können und kam zu diesem Ergebnis...

gut, macht einen wertigen Eindruck

gut, jedoch könnte er mehr Tiefbass vertragen, könnte druckvoller klingen. Mitten und Höhen sind dezent.

Tragekomfort ist super, gibt es nix zu meckern auch nach einer längeren Session.

Was ich leider nicht so positiv fand, was ich hier unbedingt reinschreiben muß, !!! ist, dass wenn man den Kopfhörer am Ohr justiert (leicht gegen das Ohr drückt) geht der Sound kurz weg bzw wird sehr flach, ich hab mich lange Zeit gefragt ob das beabsichtigt ist oder nicht.....

Laut Thomann ist das wohl kein Defekt, eine genauere Antwort bekam ich jedoch nicht.
Sehr enttäuschend, es hat mich iwann so gestört, das ich mir jetzt nun einen anderen Kopfhörer geholt habe.
Das hätte ich mir bei so einem hochpreisigen Kopfhörer von AIAIAI wirklich anders vorgestellt.

Es würde mich wirklich mal interessieren, ob das bei anderen auch so der Fall ist, wie bei mir.

Mal was neues für DJs
Cosmo Tonic 11.08.2022
Ich habe jahrelang HD-25 genutzt und war wegen des für meine Ohren doch recht dünnen Sounds schon länger nicht mehr zufrieden.

Die AIAIAI sind in allen Belangen überlegen (außer einem). Der Sound ist klarer, der Bass ist fetter, das Beatmatchen geht leichter von der Hand. Bloß der Tragekomfort ist bei längeren Gigs bei den HD25 angenehmer.

Was ich besonders gut finde, ist dass ich ab jetzt, wenn was an den AIAIAI kaputt ist, immer die einzelnen Teile bekomme. Top!
