There's always a couple on Ebay
I looked into this not too long ago, but decided against it because of potential stretching or flattening of earpads. I had a link to a good one, but lost it after reformatting, hopefully I can find it again...

well... perhaps it would be a better idea to use a replica, but I wonder if a skull would be wide enough to accomodate headphones without them easily slipping off.

That would be weird; pulling out a skull at like a meet.

I bought four of them at Pier One as well. Three or four years ago they carried them as regular stock and as I recall, they were only ten or twelve bucks a piece.

I've always found phrenology very amusing... one of these would be perfect to put headphones on, wouldn't it?



Phrenology heads are cool, but here's top tip number 1. Make sure you get a full sized one, or this kind of embarrasing incident may arise.

How careless of me.
