Designer JC Karich set out to create a pair of headphones without using any pre-manufactured parts. The end result is his Lo-Fi High Tech headphones. They’re fully functional and made completely by hand with wire, tape, magnets, solder and several 3D printed parts.
Karich had some difficulty finding materials that worked best in terms of design without comprising sound quality, but despite the lo-fi design Karich said the sound quality exceeds expectations.
If you’re interested in making your own pair of Lo-Fi High Tech Headphones, Karich provides instructions on Thingverse. You can also watch a short video detailing the headphones below.
