Greetings all, please check out this amazing work of craftsmanship by TOMOWORKS, a Japanese modder & DIY'er.

I have requested permission to share their work here, please take a look!

(PS: I recommend DeepL translation if you would like to leave a nice comment, it generally mangles translations less than Google translate)

I didn't, but I'm keen on saving money currently so I'm totally okay on not knowing 😅

This just looks like the cans were 3D printed in resin and not finished lol.

I think there's something nice about letting material be as they are. Not every 3D printed piece needs to be painted, although I do appreciate a nice bead blast to smooth over layer lines.

I shall hereby leave my nod of approval for said translation site/app

Tbh triangular holes don't trigger my trypophobia nearly as much as circular ones, and same with holes on metal/plastic materials compared to holes on fleshy or leathery materials

Strickens t1_iwytavj wrote

Same here, it's really just circular 'irregular holes'. The triangles do still look kind of gross but don't trigger the anxiety that holes do.

I'd say I have a mild trypophobia and I'm perfectly fine with this design.

So, how do they sound?

Looks awesome! But imagine how many spiders could easily hide in there

I‘m really afraid of things like that, and if you ever find a spider in a weird place, you‘ll be too!

I watched few other videos of him and his 40mm driver IEM gave me a good laugh. Thx for sharing.

Fuck yeah, this looks awesome. Not sure how the K701s sound by 2022 standards though

This forum seems to care mostly about looks rather than sound...

Almost like the reddit is a visual medium and you cannot convey the audio experience of headphones through images!

I too like pictures, but all I can think of when seeing this picture is "dust". Can't exactly vacuum a headphone.

Oppenheisenberg t1_iwyhh6m wrote

Wow. You are quite daft.

This medium is 95 percent words. You can certainly convey how something sounds thru words.

Nice attempt at defending style over function.

It's more about "we like headphones and this is interesting to some people"

Stop gatekeeping what is and isn't a valid way of enjoying this silly hobby lol

Upvotes are just a measure of people going "huh that's cool" and hitting a button. Not exactly a surprise that a 3000 word essay on the sound of a headphone has a much smaller audience given half the people looking at any given post are on the toilet

My brother in Christ we just like it when our good sounding headphones are also good looking

Screw off and fuck a turnip

I like how a bunch of people who have consumer product names proudly displayed below their Reddit username are being critical of your statement… lol
