Featured Thing!


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.

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

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.
