German premium headphone maker Sennheiser announced a partnership with 3D printing technology developer Formlabs technology to print custom earphones.
Sennheiser's Ambeo division said the goal will be to create custom headphone eartips. Users would be able to scan their ears with a smartphone app and send it to the company to get a tip printed.
The headphones will be made using Form 3B, a printer design to use biocompatible material for dental applications.
In a press release, Formlabs audio head Iain McLeod said, "Our technology collaboration with Sennheiser seeks to change the way customers interact with the brands they love by enabling a more customized, user-centric approach to product development," adding, "Formlabs' deep industry knowledge and broad expertise in developing scalable solutions enable us to deliver tangible innovations to our customers."
