Never before have on-ear headphones been this portable. The Armadillo design allows the headphones to be folded in a compact manner that protects the ear-cups from being damaged when in your bag.
Designed for 3D Printing
The Armadillo Headphones have been designed from the ground up with 3D printing in mind. This means that 98% of the model can be printed without supports. The fit between each part has been adjusted so that even low-precision printers are able to make the headphones without any problem.
The design works with PLA, ABS, and all other plastics that are sufficiently flexible and strong. The dimensions and print directions have been chosen carefully to maximise the durability of the headphones. Material: PLA
No screws are needed to assemble the Armadillo Headphones. The parts all snap together to form a solid product that redefines what can be made on consumer grade 3D printers.
The headband has been designed with four degrees of freedom, making it easily adjustable for a great fit. In combination with the soft earpads this means the headphones are comfortable to wear for hours on end.
70% or more
The headphones shown in the images were printed in PLA. If you can print in a harder (but still flexible) plastic that's even better.
