Brainwavz Audio Use 3D Printing for Production of High-end Ergonomic B400 Earphones

Good news: 3D printing is disappearing. As many have predicted, for 3D printing to become a true mass customization process, it needs to disappear. Companies and users need to be able to make and buy 3D printed products not because they are 3D printed, but because those are the best possible products and they can only be made by 3D printing. This is now happening and the latest B400 Brainwavz earphones represent a clear indication of this trend.

The company makes the highly ergonomic B400 model using a transparent resin and high-resolution stereolithographic process. The Brainwavz B400 uses a 4 Driver system, with each driver focused on its’s own specific range of the sound spectrum, resulting in a true audiophile-grade sound. To achieve a truly ergonomic housing, the company used 3D printing technology. Each B400 is handcrafted in-house by Brainwavz from components produced in the USA and Europe.

Brainwavz B400 are unique in many ways, but one standout feature is how they are made. The B400 plays host to some of the finest drivers around. But this is only half the story, the company’s unique 3D modeling and printing systems have enabled constant design, testing and honing the B400. By 3D modeling and printing, the company can innovate faster and experiment more, enabling the creation of a unique system that lets the Balanced Armatures perform above and beyond expectations.

The main shells are printed using stereolithographic 3D printers, enabling a shape not possible by normal manufacturing methods. This unique manufacturing method is described in the product’s page but it is not the main attraction. Customers will purchase them because they have a unique ergonomic shape and they look nice. The company chose 3D printing as a production method because it proved ideally cost-effective and it provided sufficient guarantees in terms of process reliability and product durability.
