OwnPhones Custom Earbuds are 3D-Printed to Fit Your Ears
July 7th, 2014
Earphones are available in all sorts of shapes, colors, and sizes. Sometimes you find one that fits perfectly, and all is well in the world. Other times, you end up with a pair that’s a pain to use because they keep falling off because they’re either too loose or too tight.
There’s not much you can do with your ears, but there’s plenty you can do when it comes to your earbuds, and you can start with OwnPhones. They’ll be launching a campaign on Kickstarter this month that will allow interested music lovers to have a pair of personalized earbuds custom-made.
Using OwnPhone’s mobile app, users are instructed to record a clip of both of their ears, which the company will then use to 3D-print a pair of perfect-fitting earbuds.
The retail price is expected to range from $299 to $449. However, OwnPhones will be offering an early bird discount when their Kickstarter campaign launches, so keep your eyes and ears peeled if you’re interested in getting a pair of your own.
