Accord introduces 3D printed personal ear buds. These buds are created directly from individual 3D scans of the buyers ear. You can then choose a material and voila, you’ve got your own personal 3d printed earbuds that fit perfectly. These ones are gold plated brass and black nylon.
Once you place an order, there are a couple of options for fitting. You can either order an ear molding kit and mold your ears yourself, this will cost you around $5. If you want to get your ears professionally molded, you can go to an audiologist and send off the molds to Accord to be 3D scanned.
Accord prepares the 3D files to receive the drivers and buttons. Then the parts are printed in the buyers chosen material. This is a process that can all be done on demand which leads to a more sustainable product.
