We are looking for a "guy" to do the job :)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

We are a company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. A Start-up with a good idea.  

 

We are looking for someone who can build our headphone.

 

Any idea where to start?

 

We look forward to hear from you :)

 

 

 

 

 

Regards

Many Chinese companies offer OEM services, like sunrise audio, soundmagic and more

Yeah...but we need a good story to. 

 

So maybe you are the nerd from the basement who needs a job for a while or wanna be part of the company..

You want to build something completely from scratch? Making cups, baffles, headbands, earpads, etc. I assume you're going to source the drivers from somewhere rather than build your own?

 

You're not going to find many basement nerds who have the capability or equipment to machine/manufacture large quantities of headphones. I have plenty of DIY experience and transplanting drivers (see signature for links), and a good ear for tuning, but I don't know if that's what you're looking for.

I doubt any head-fi member is up to manufacturing headphones in a large scale. A couple of us could probably help design and prototype them, but for mass production you'd probably need to outsource to China. Won't be cheap either for a start-up. To make the moulds for injection moulding which you'd probably be using to make enclosures cost thousands of dollars each.

for proto-typing you can use silicon molds, no need for injection molding equipment. not sure about the driver.... electrostatics?

Good points above, if it does get going I'd help with design, prototypes and what not

These day's it'd be a lot easier and quicker to 3D print them.

... Then use the printed shells to make molds/dies.

THIS.

 

If your company does not have tools already sitting there for the basement nerd, there's hardly any ways for him to even get started aside from doing the blue-print and sourcing materials. (which he would even be unsure of do to size fittings)
