September 2nd, 2010 – Have you ever seen those sweet custom-molded earphones and actually looked up how much it costs to have them molded, on top of the price of earphones themselves? I don’t doubt that they’re worth the price, but I certainly can’t afford them. I do, however, have a pair of old Shure generic in ear monitors (IEM) that are in need of new sleeves.
Make Magazine has a tutorial on how to roll your own out of a 15 dollar custom molded ear plug kit. It’s a pretty cool project for an old set of earphones.
