Go cop the new AIAIAI x Young Guru headphones, available worldwide from today, the 17th of July!
AIAIAI x Young Guru
As always, the research and development process has been painstakingly long and winding, but we made it through to the other side of another new pair of headphones and we’re currently thrilled to present you with the result: the TMA-1 Studio Engineered by Young Guru.
Young Guru and AIAIAI have aimed to make an outstanding pair of headphones for the on-the-go producer and sound engineer who needs a durable piece of equipment that delivers high-quality audio in the studio and on the road. Merging the worlds of forward-thinking music production with Danish audio design, and fusing culture, sound and design in the process, the new collaboration sees the acclaimed sound engineer make his unique mark on our new studio headphones.
For those of you who don’t know our latest collaborator, we can tell you that Young Guru is a Grammy-winning audio engineer who has worked with Jay-Z, Drake and Alicia Keys (Empire State of Mind) among others. Moreover, his knowledgeable input throughout the development process has been an exceedingly welcome and innovative contribution, which has undoubtedly lent our new studio headphones a vast amount of expertise, know-how and X-factor. As Guru's manager, Jerald, so aptly puts it: 'There a reason they call him Young Guru.'
• Reduced weight: (180 grams without cable). The TMA-1 Studio Engineered by Young Guru is our lightest TMA-1 model, resulting in less stress on your head during listening sessions.
• Young Guru Sound Signature: developed in collaboration with the Grammy-winning sound engineer for discerning listening.
• Robust all-metal plug with polished finish, designed to withstand the rigor of the road.
We hope you’ll put the TMA-1 Studio Engineered by Young Guru to good use on the road or in the studio. Check out Guru's take on the collaboration below:
