This is a replacement part for ubiquitous MDR-V150 headphones. It is the most commonly broken part. I have not tried printing it yet, so if anyone does, tell me how it goes.

EDIT1: I have uploaded version 2.0, which is soon to be printed on a dimension 3D printer.

EDIT 2: As some have pointed out, this model sucked pretty bad. Check out the remix by Mflego: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:755250

I should also mention that I got a print done by shapeways with this model: http://shpws.me/CfOW. It was fairly successful, and only required a bit of drilling/sanding to get it to fit. The headphones are still rocking!

do you think you could make a bracket for the sony mdr xb950bt's?

Samroesch, Thanks very much for getting this model started. Everyday replacement parts are the most important adds on thingiverse hands down and I applaud the effort. As Jean F points out. this model needed some serious tweaks to be functional. So in the spirit of open source I have posed a revision of this that should be a little bit more cleaned up. Much thanks again for the effort and thanks for including the solid file. That really helped the remix. JeanF, stop being such a hater and add some value.

Yes, too short, middle hole too tight, and the little hole that clips on the other part is missing... Mmmm... Whats the point of publishing a model that does'nt fit. Living in a space time that titles are not significant anymore. Only comments value... Should've read them first. Waste of time and money (and credibility)...

Everything was good except the circumference was off by 2 cm, and the hole was too small for the pivot axle.

It isn't to scale... The model is too short to be asembled with the MDR-V150. Also, there is a kind of notch in the original part which is not here. I printed it in PLA after cutting it in two part with Netfabb, then glueded together with DCM.

where can i buy this part

It looks like it would require some tweaking before it could be printed on a RepRap/MakerBot. But I really like the idea. I have an old pair of Sony MDR V700s that I repaired with fishing string and 'Hobby Glue'. It would be nice to print a replacement.

Is the tweaking due to a lack of resolution on the MakerBot? I just had it printed on a dimension printer and it came out well, but it might have better resolution/tolerance than a MakerBot.

I have these cans - would like to see it printed

What side is it supposed to be on when printing?
You can
´t print things that are hanging in mid-air, nor are overhangs
° possible.

I've never actually printed anything, so I wasn't sure how or what to upload. I can move it around and put it on a plane in solid works, and then maybe it will be more printable?

You could print with support I want to try that next week - but where is the small gap that holds it?

Also, is it to scale?
