I decided to combine the two things that I love most: music and LEGO. This whole project took me about a month and a half, very on and off. I'm quite pleased with how the headphones turned out in the end, as they are sturdy enough to be tossed around in a bag. My favourite part is that I can take it apart any time to make repairs that may be needed on the go. No tools necessary!
The only major problem is that there is a lot of sound escaping from the headphones. What would be the best way to insulate the sound?
Any suggestions on how to make these better would be much appreciated!
If you plan on making yourself a pair of these, a few words of advice:
- Make them lighter and smaller so they don't add too much weight to your head while indulging yourself in tunes.
- Whatever adhesive you decide to use, go easy on it. The worst thing that can happen is glue gushing out from the cracks, which makes everything look... less nice.
- "Measure twice, cut once." Be very precise in all your measurements and such. It will make your final product much more professional looking.
- Customize them. Hey, it IS Lego after all. The possibilities are endless with the shapes and colours that can be combined together. Have fun!
