The AIAIAI & Ninja Tune TMA-2 Headphones (recycled vinyl)

AIAIAI teams up with Ninja Tune to release the TMA-2 headphones made from recycled vinyl!

The green revolution within the music industry is one that we welcome with open arms. The idea of using recycled and sustainable material as a core component within the equipment is a satisfying one indeed.

AIAIAI, the Danish audio design company founded in 2006 and dedicated to the development of premium products for music lovers, has teamed up with Ninja Tune, the London-based record label that manages the likes of Bicep, Denis Sulta, Peggy Gou and Helena Hauff, to roll out a sustainable pair of headphones, made out of recycled vinyl.

Yes, unsold vinyl has been recycled and used to form part of the driver units. 

The TMA-2 is a variant of the previously released, same-named model. The ‘Ninja Tune Edition’ headphones feature not only an ecologically friendly shell but drivers too. Their Bio-Cellulose S05 drivers contain an ‘organic compound’ that derives from certain types of bacteria. It is claimed that the material is not just biodegradable but has a beautiful array of “acoustic properties”, making them rich and accurate in sound. 

Modular in design, you will be able to select from either on-ear or over-ear cushions, supporting your comfort criteria. Both models are fashioned out of vegan leather, with the Ninja Tune logo incorporated on the inner side. The slick and stylish headphones power up through an internal battery, delivering around 20 hours of listening on a full charge via Bluetooth 5.0, making them ideal for long and critical listening sessions. 

AIAIAI co-founder Frederik Jørgensen explained in a statement that the headphones are a continuation of the Danish company’s focus on sustainable design. 

“We create products far beyond trend-driven aesthetics,” he said. “With sustainable modular functionality and recycled materials, we extend the longevity of every product and create less waste for the planet – designed to last.” 

Joe Durnan, Senior Designer at Ninja Tune, added: “To continue to exist as an industry, we need to place these topics at the forefront of discussions and decisions.” 

“This collaboration is not the final answer, but more so an example of how working towards greener solutions can lead to innovative and exciting results,” he said. 

You can pick up the TMA-2 Ninja Edition headphone for a cool £213.
