High-fidelity headphone maker V- MODA today announced that it has launched the world’s first 3D printed, custom-designed headphones in India with an exclusive partnership with Indian distributor Ferrari Video and its retail brand Headphone Zone.
Sculpted in V-MODA’s design studio in Milano, the 3D shields are made of materials including fiber, stainless steel, raw, plated and precious metals such as solid gold and platinum.
“3D printing has captured the imaginations of people, but this is the first application that can be worn every day on an award-winning product. This technology ends the ubiquity of carbon copy, plastic consumer electronics and usher in an era of bespoke designs and metals that transform products into hand-crafted designer relics,” says Val Kolton, CEO V-MODA.
Customer will be able to customise their headphones on headphone zone website by first selecting the base headphones. Users can then select their 3D shield material of choice and then choose their design and/or monogram or by sending their custom designs to Headphone Zone.
“V-MODA’s product and design philosophy is as unique as their outstanding products. With the 3D shields they have pushed the boundaries of imagination and brought new meaning to the concept of endorsing yourself.”, – Raghav Somani, CEO, Headphone Zone.
