Snugs custom fit earphones

These custom fit earphones are a great example of how 3D printing can personalise everyday objects and be more than just about printing novelty objects. They also show the longer term potential 3D printing has to influence our buying habits with a focus on more personalised products. Snugs are a little pocket any standard earphones slot into - your ear is scanned and after some manipulation this is 3D printed giving a custom fit product that the manufacturer says gives better sound quality, less external noise and greater comfort. Unlike the traditional system, where gunk has to be put into the ear to create a mould, the scanning technology is non-invasive and manufacturing time is shorter.
