When one thinks about cutting back on plastic usage, our minds don't tend to go straight to our headphones. However, according to a recent report, it was found that a record 53.6 million metric tons of electronic waste were generated last year.
The TMA-2 Ninja Tune Edition uses recycled vinyl to create the shell, but they don't stop there. The Bio-Cellulose S05 drivers are also sustainable and are made out of an organic compound that comes from certain types of bacteria. While that could raise questions on sound quality, the company maintains that though the material is bio-degradable, it also produces "great acoustic properties."
“We create products far beyond trend-driven aesthetics,” AIAIAI co-founder Frederik Jørgensen explained in a statement. “With sustainable modular functionality and recycled materials, we extend the longevity of every product and create less waste for the planet – designed to last.”
