This is a case design for corded iPhone style headphones. I needed something to keep my cat from running off with my headphones (anything sting-like belongs to him under some obscure cat law)
It’s a pretty simple two piece design.
I recommend building one in cardboard to make sure your particular headphones fit. My final was in .12 birch ply. Adjust as needed.
And because someone will ask: I find the wireless “airpods” to be an audio engineering hate crime. They are acoustically harsh, never fully charged when I actually need them and intrinsically designed to occupy a landfill in less than 2 years. –end rant
Anyway, enjoy the file.
but… but what about the “cool” factor of having a chunk of expensive white plastic sticking out of your ear?
This is GREAT. Even though I rarely use wired ones anymore, it is good to be able to store the 37 pairs I have. As to the dumb butts who use airpods…guilty as charged. I have had 3 pairs and a pair of the Pro version (which made my ears itch, like an allergy, so back to regulars). I do also have a set of AfterShokz Aeropex bone conduction headphones that I adore as well, and they have better battery life.
This is very nice. I don’t like Air Pods either…they hurt my ears.
Affectionately known as “Q Tips”.
Wired OR wireless they just fall out of my ears because I have defective traguses (the part of your ear that sticks back and holds them in place). Mine stick out instead of back. sigh
Thank you for sharing this useful design.
You have a 3D printer? What an excuse to buy one if not
There is an excellent deign for earrings that only work with about a third of folks, in the divot at the bottom of the ear or use similar design criteria that would fit only you
Oh, that’s slick–thanks @shogun!
A guy after my own heart. I’ve been struggling with how to store my headphones. I never thought I would find a pattern (let alone free!) since all the “cool kids” are using the wireless ones. Thank you for making my day!
Ok. Stupid newbie question. I really like this and would like to make one. I see the image but I don’t see an svg file to download. What am I missing?
Right click the line drawing under the photos and save as svg.
Got it. So sorry to trouble you.
