Chilean-born, Paris-based designer J.C. Karich has created ‘Ear Adapters,’ a 3D-printed project that allows users to transform their small and portable earbuds into stable and comfortable over-the-ear headphones. The earbuds slot inside the fabric cushioned headphones, letting users listen to their tunes in a different way. The design file for this project is available on Thingiverse for users to 3D print for themselves.
