The Normal Earbuds are 3D-Printed

That moment when you go to the gym or jogging and while you’re enjoying your favorite guitar solo, the earbud decided to hit the ground. I’m thinking someone should come up with a solution to this annoying problem, and what do you know: they have. The Normal Earbuds are a pair of headphones that shape themselves to the ear of the listener. Sounds odd, doesn’t it?

The Normal Earbuds solve the problem by being the snuggest fit you’ll ever get from a pair of ear-buds. You see, each set is designed for a single individual, by using 3D printing technology; those of you who live in New York can even visit The Factory and craft your headphones on-site. For the rest of us, there’s another way: the Normals App uses your phone’s camera to take a snapshot of your ears, you then select the color and order your headphones. Done!

The Normal Earbuds will set you back $199, but that’s just the price you pay for being trendy and enjoying high quality products. I’m willing to pay that just to avoid ruining my short and increasingly seldom moments of peace and music.
