The beyerdynamic DT770 have always been a very popular headphone for studio use and because of their great sound quality they are being adopted by the audiophile on a budget community. One thing a lot of people complain about is long fixed cable. There have been quite a few DIY forum threads on the subject but I thought I would do I quick video to show how it is done.
This is of course a service we can offer along with making custom cables for them but if you fancy giving it a go hopefully this should help
These next ones are a batch we made for soundworks studios – having them custom designed stops them from being mixed up with other peoples ones and helps stop them from being stolen. They asked to have a random series with classic synths and audio equipment on them and it was great fun. We have done batches of lots of the same for people and lots of one off individual designs but I think this is the first “collection” on a theme we have knocked out
The T50RP are well know for having massive potential for improvement so we thought we would give it a quick go.
These had mass loaded drivers,modified baffle, upgraded damping and they were recabled with silver cable
Here are some momentums we made for a google sponsored gaming team – Funny story… They were in a real hurry for these so we agreed to drive them to Googles offices in London the same day they were finished – unfortunately the water pump on Joe’s car died on the way back and the car died on the way home. I should have charged more for delivery
Here is a quick video showing how we customise headphones. These were quite a simple design but it gives you an idea of how much work goes into each pair we do and why it takes so long to finish them
The whole team at Custom cans would like to say a big thank you to all our supporters for helping us reach the top 10 micro business’s in the country.
Every vote meant a great deal to all of us,thank you.
Here is a step by step guide to show you how we made are super cool custom made headphones for the legend “Craig Charles”. The team at custom cans have been huge fans for sometime, and to show are appreciation we have created theses Beyerdynamics with a red dwarf, takeshi’s castle and robot wars theme to them.
Before starting the process, are artist Paul Newman likes to create a few quick illustrations to get a feel of what we are after.
Once happy with the chosen sketches, its then time to add the finishing touches into illustrator. This process can take a lot of patience due to the amount of detail involved, but with a bit of time you can really bring your illustrations to life.
Here are the final designs, as you can see they have come along way from the original drawings. The next stage is to print the images out and apply the transfer on to the ear cups.
