Here is a time lapse video of some new headphone parts being printed. The actual print ran for 3 hours.
3D Printed Headphones
For years I have been frustrated by the quality and cost of headphones. Either they are excessively expensive or poorly made, disposable products. Many times I have attempted to repair a set, only to find they were glued together, made from fragile components or otherwise not serviceable. At the other end there may not be parts available for some higher quality headphones that might otherwise be serviceable.
I searched some of the downloadable designs available on Thingiverse and found a few options. I printed one of these options. But generally each of these designs were lacking in some area. Ultimately I decided to design a set from scratch.
