Modular Headphones

This came from Make Magazine's blog


I love this concept for headphones, I frequently have one headphone get a loose connection and end up throwing out the headphones because of it. The connectors where the stress points are would be pretty boss for those of us that are little hard on headphones.

What do you think, would you be down for headphones that where modular?

  2. Excellent idea, i only know of a few brands that do this but they are bulky studio headphones. I'm always breaking my ipod earphones.

  3. Pretty good idea, the detachable bits would add a lot of life to the headphones, since i'm always clumsy and catch the cords on everything.

  6. sounds good, but in reality you'd probably pull the modular cables out of the actually earphones all the time.

  7. @Loic, I can see what you mean so it would definitely depend on how the plug was designed. You could loose your mind in designing each of the components for optimum fit and the best secure but not too secure hold. It would be an interesting business, but Sony or Apple would do their very best to ruin the party.

  9. That actually isn't a bad idea. I've gone through so many head phones because one bud breaks. Though it would depend if each modular piece is worth more than a cheap pair of them.

  19. Totally down! I've had to solder spare cables onto busted phones before, it sucks. If every set just had hot swappable cables it'd be so much easier. Plus you could pack em up without worrying about stressing the joints n stuff.
