DIY headphone kits: Great sounding headphones designed to be customised, fixed and upgraded. 3D print them yourself or locally via 3D Hubs

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 24, 2015

Introducing the most customizable headphone ever!

Print+ has developed a DIY kit that enables you to make your own headphone. By combining 3D printed parts with components from the print+ kit you can create a headphone that is truly yours.

How does it work?

3D print the plastic parts in the color of your choice on your 3D printer. If  you don’t have a printer use a local 3D Hub. Combine the 3D printed parts with components from the print+ headphone kit. Assembly is super simple, no screws, glue or tools required – just a pair of hands!

3D printed parts

Files for the 3D printed parts will be available as free download. The parts are very easily printed without support structure and take about 20 hours to finish. There will be 3 basic designs available at first.

There are five parts to be printed: speaker housing (2x), speaker cover (2x) and frame (1x)

Rewards

Stretch goals: unlock the colors!

At first our rewards were available with only leather headbands, leather cushions and a black audio cable. Because we are happy that we reached our funding goal so fast, we went ahead and have unlocked the grey tone textile cushions without reaching an additional stretch goal.

 Unlocking colors

All other colors can be unlocked once we reach each stretch goal. Once we reach a stretch goal we will send out a survey to all backers to let us know which colors we should unlock. The colors with the most votes will win. The votes from backers with bigger rewards will be given a greater influence. So if you have ordered more kits – you’ll have a bigger say in  which colors get chosen.

Stretch goal 1: reach €15.000

6 additional colors will become available – making the total available colors: 11

Strech goal 2: reach €22.500

6 additional colors will become available – making the total available colors: 17

Strech goal 3: reach €30.000

5 additional colors will become available – making the total available colors: 22

The colors your kit will come with

After the Kickstarter campaign is over, you will be able to make the final decision what color(s) your kit(s) should come with  – regardless how you voted during ‘unlocking colors’. We will ask for your final choice through the final survey we send out after the Kickstarter campaign is over. Cushions are chosen per set, headband and audio cable can be chosen independently   So if you like, you can choose a different color for headband, cushions (2x) and cable.
