3Dprint your own earphones (Eartaps) - WBD101 - 12-30-2013

Hi,

We launched our Kickstarter EarTaps™ project, naysayers said that we will see counterfeits soon from the Far East, but we figured, why not give our backers the 3D mechanical file to allow them to 3D print their own earphones and let American/European “manufacturing” beat those counterfeits?!

The project is here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/763891189/eartapstm-dynamically-adjustable-fit-for-active-li and I wonder how we can get more exposure for it?

Thanks!

They look great! I have to have some.
All the best!

Thank you! We are doing our little part to move production back from the far east....

Hi Chris, in order to 3D print the eartaps, we will provide the following besides the STL/STP file:
1) eargels of 3 sizes,
2) two elastomer rings (one of left ear and one for right ear),
3) two sound tunnels ( the part that actually goes into your ear canals) with the audio driver glued on it,
4) two supporting structures that made of home polymer with the metal shaft, and some small metal part to keep the shafts in position,
5) the flat cables with microphone, and
6) instructions for doing that.

You can take a look at the exploded drawing on our Kickstarter page to have better understanding!
