It’s hard to avoid the fad of 3D-printed this and that, and even headphone manufacturer V-Moda seemingly hasn’t been able to stay away from it. It will be offering customizable headsets, the parts of which will of course be 3D-printed and will be priced from up to $40000 (over Rs 25,00,000).
These music accessories can be paired with custom 3D-printed shields. This works for the V-Moda XS and Crossfade M-100 range of headphones which the Hollywood-based company sells. The customized shield will be placed on the ear cups, thus giving them an even more stylish look.
You can choose to print on them whatever you want, or go with the standard designs that are available with the manufacturer. While materials like fiber, aluminum and stainless steel can be 3D-printed, expensive ones like bronze, silver, 14-karat gold and platinum can also be chosen if your wallets are deep enough.
For some perspective, crafting a fiber shield for either of the above mentioned headsets will set you back by $40, while a stainless steel 3D print will cost around $100. The priciest design will involve platinum shields and will be expensive to the tune of $40000.
The V-MODA XS headphone comes equipped with 40mm dual-diaphragm drivers, and offers a durable body apart from other advanced features like passive noise cancellation and more. The Crossfade M-100 headset comes fitted with 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers as well as military-grade durability features.
