When AIAIAI initially unveiled its frontrunner, the TMA-1, it had in mind the durability, ruggedness and aesthetics of a touring DJ. With a need to provide superior audio quality as well as a well-styled construction, the TMA-1 has gone on to be one of the most respected set of on-ear headphones on the market today; welcomed by both casual listeners as well as heavy-duty audiophiles. Carrying over these same niche tendencies and high quality ethos, AIAIAI today officially releases its latest headphones player, the “Capital.”
Pulling upon an amalgam of influences, various elements of the Capital Headphones play into their urban utilitarian function and form. Inspired by snowboarding boots, a unique sliding feature makes the pair conform to its wearer – ear cushions are made from the same stretchable foam found in traditional car seating and the rubber used in the production is the same of bicycle handles. Fully realizing the need for a pair to not only meet the demands of the keen ear, but also the demands of the on-the-go city dweller, the rain- and snow-tested, Denmark-designed Capital Headphones from AIAIAI further affirm the audio brand’s longevity and ability to innovate in a constantly changing market. Slated at a retail of approximately $126 USD, availability is now offered here.
