I’m probably not the only one who thinks in-ear
headphones are not the more comfortable but more
important than this is the fact that is headphones allow
you to isolate from the rest sometimes but what if you
could decide either tu use your headphones inside or
over you ears? you could still be hearing what happens
around you and still listening to music at the same time.
This adapter can hold you in ear headphones just a little
over you ears, and the shape intents to be open to
ambient sounds so the will mix in with the music.


To make this headset adapter for iphone headphones you will need a 3D printer, some 3mm abs or pla filament and of course headphones!

Depending on your size you will need to print more or less parts, but you can also make the headset with just 2 filament sections and the 2 earpiece adapters.

I've added 2 thin cushions made of laser cutted spacer fabric for a more comfortable result.

This is the Second version already, I'll keep on improving it.

these look so sweet! I'm curious, what are the white support beams?

It is 3mm pla or abs

Hi, I'm just wondering if you could add an "adapter" piece for 1.75mm filament? I don't have any 3mm, since my printer doesn't use it.

Can you add an overhead piece that is 1.75mm compatible. I only have 1.75mm filament.
