Introduction: DIY 3D Printed Earbuds Prototype I
Today we are going to build some Earbuds. I had some speakers from an iPad 4 which I found years ago on the street. It did not work, however some components were in a good shape and I left them until this day.
Speakers from the iPad are on the right and on the left you can compare them to the speaker units from 5$ earbuds.

Step 1: The Housing
As my friend gave me a 3D printer for a while, and it is quarantine time now, he can not take it back. So I decided to finally prepare a housing in AutoCAD and send it to the printer. This is a 3D model ready to be sliced for the printer.
Step 2: The 3D Print
It took about an hour and a half to print and here how it looked.
Step 3: Some Adjustments
Some adjustments were done so the speaker fits in. And here I am fitting it right in.
Step 4: The First Prototype
So this is how the final Earpieces look. I did not glue them together because i want them to be easily dissembled for the next part. This is a first prototype and there has to be a second part of this post soon.
Step 5: The Video
Please see a process video.
