Stay safe, looks good. :D

 

Yes, this is definitely something I read about! Don't worry, got plenty of ventilation :3

Thats great! I am ordering a pair t50rp cans today keen to start modding away!

how about printing some earcups that shapes similarly to the Sony R10?

 

Then paint them in tomato red:eek: / neon green:blink: / zombie purple:rolleyes:, that will be way cool.

I have a few ideas of my own! But I'll post later on.

For a start, how detail can the 3D printer be? I'm still knew to this tech and have less info on it.

I wanna know if you can print screws using it and how small would that be?

I will be following this thread with interest.

I wouldn't print screws with this. It might be detailed enough depending on the size of the screw, but the plastic is soft and the thread would wear pretty quickly. Much easier to fasten things with real screws and real threads which you could embed in the plastic anyway...

So it's detail enough to make it then? Good enough

Well, I wasn't planning to make screws to tighten any parts. Just to make screws to be able to move some parts for customization, which I don't think will put that much pressure to the screws so as to wear them out. At least, not very soon

This is great I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this thread because I am also modding these headphones with 3d printing. I have the Up plus II and am currently printing my design in 2 parts. The 15mm z resolution is so fine and perfect for getting the smooth curves. I've also made a semi accurate model of the driver to use to design with. Feel free to use this to start your modeling. I also have the 3d file if the STL is giving you trouble.

I'll attach pictures once I get permission. 

 

If you want to put screws just make an opening for a hex nut of the according size, buy the hardware then glue it in. Its a lot of extra work but its worth it. If you want a final product.

 

Beautiful baffle by the way!

Can somebody show me how does the end of the hangar (the gold/copper/etc bar attaching the cup to the headband)? Or maybe the whole bar? I may want to make a custom piece to hold the cup.

Awesome work! I've been playing around in the local fab lab with modding some t50's. Right now my first prototype is sounding great! I will post pics when I get a chance. I am using the 3d model as a basis for a wood design that we are going to throw on the cnc machine.

Very interested in 3D printing for this kind of mod. Ordered some T50RP's that I'll be doing some basic mod's when I'm back home after Xmas.

 

Been thinking about modelling some new cups and getting them printed to see how they sound. Was wondering if anyone has some basic measurements for the T50's? Distances between the main cup mounting screws are probably the most important. If not I can measure them when I get back from holidays!

I think you need to request a_rec for that if he wants to that is.

 

Or better yet, create your own! With a circular shaped cup, you can use the circular earpads more easily
