Torque Audio, inventor of the interchangeable TorqueValve™, launches its innovativet096z earbuds and t402v headphones on Kickstartertoday. Torque seamlessly blends premium materials, expert craftsmanship and audio customization for unique listening. All Torque headphones are tunable so users will always get the exact sound experience they are looking for. Both the t096z and t402v utilize a proprietary bio-cell diaphragm for unparalleled sound and acoustic control.  

The t096z are the only in-earbuds to come with six interchangeable sound valves (TorqueValves™). Music lovers can choose from the reference, clear, deep, balanced, smooth or bliss TorqueValve™ depending on their mood and what genre they are listening too. T096z earbuds feature 9mm bio-cell drivers and oxygen free copper conductors for uncompromised, immersive sound. The t096z’s come with six different types of noise-reducing ear tips for maximum comfort; the ear buds even include a silicone StabilizerRing so users don’t have to worry about their buds slipping out while they are rocking out.


The t402v is a one-of-a kind headphone that includes interchangeable on-ear and over-ear pads a long with clear bass and a rich sound that is pumped out of 40mm bio-cell Neodymium drivers. Patent pending modi:fi technology allows users to adjust sound by simply changing the orientation of the magnetically held ear pad to align with the yellow, blue, red or black frequency levels (ordered from lowest to highest bass). Unlike other headsets, t402v folds flat for a sleek look and easy stowing. The t402v is the only headphone you will ever need thanks to its’ on and over-ear pads that offer the best of both worlds, eight customizable listening settings and timeless design that will not go out of style.

“As an audio lover I would continually find myself purchasing high-end headphones and being disappointed with the sound, so many of them were genre specific,” says Torque Audio co-founder, Yasu Yamamoto. “The t096z and t402v were created to provide users with the best possible listening experience across every type of music. Whether you’re a fan of Mozart, Buddy Holly or Beyonce we have the right setting for you.”
