DIY Headphones Are Brady Bunch-Y and Cool

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 18, 2008


These DIY headphones look fantastic! I can only (probably erroneously) assume the sound quality matches the look.

Flickr user j.rusten furniture studio shared the story behind these headphones he made for himself. He says, “I adapted a pair of normal safety earphones for speakers, and added a vintage look. I cut the outside portion of the cups off, replaced with a curved flat sheet of plastic -over which I mounted the grill (from an old record player) and the cork which I sanded to shape. Then I painted the rest of the shell green, and installed some $50 drivers.”

I really like the funky 70s aesthetic of this particular pair, but I especially love the idea that folks could make them to suit their own personal style and color scheme. Although, the likelihood of me successfully sanding down curved cork so I can sport these is basically nil. I’m just impatient like that. Plus, where does one find old record player parts to pillage?
