Our First Headphone Build Using Wood and 3D Printed Parts

Always seeking to push the boundaries on how the Homebrew Headphones design can be adapted in new ways, we recently made our first pair with wooden covers.

These are a perfect example of how easily the design can be adapted – the wooden covers are pretty much the same as the 3D printed ones and the baffles just have a few bits of their structure deleted to accomodate the wooden covers.

The covers are the same design, CNC routered from Beech wood.

They retain the 3D printed baffles and headband, with a few bits of structure deleted off the baffle to accomodate the wooden covers.

They are bluetooth connected and battery powered:

The 3D printed headband was covered in leather to complete the luxurious look. The leather was glued on with gel super glue and the inside covered with fabric to hide the joint.

Overall I’m pretty happy with this first try!
