3D Printed Headphones Can Be Made By Anyone

Designers at Teague considered printed prototypes becoming actual products and made a pair of the electronically simple yet functionally complex accessories.

The designers at Teague Labs have created a pair of functional 3D printable headphones called 13:30 (because their print time is 13 hours and 30 minutes).

With 3D printers becoming more accessible we decided to have a think around the concept “life in beta” as a future scenario. What if printed prototypes could become actual products? Meaning, once off the print bed an object could be assembled without any tools and be made functional by readily attainable components. I decided to stress test the premise with the challenge of making electronically simple yet functionally complex headphones.

Core77 reports that the headphones have a flexible yet durable strap and the designers have managed to compensate for the brittleness of the material. The current model, component list, and instructions, have been posted on Thingiverse for anyone to make their own pair of working headphones.
