The increasing popularity of 3D printing has inspired New York company Normal to create their own range of custom audio accessories. The brand uses additive manufacturing techniques to create earbuds with a flawless fit and design.

Normal's custom audio accessories are personalized using a sticker that molds to the shape of one's ear. Once applied, the sticker and its censors obtain sizing info and send it to an accompanying iOS or Android app. Once imported into a 3D program, one's personalized earbuds are ready to be printed.

Not only are the products customized to fit each consumer's needs but they are also quickly manufactured using a 10 Stratasys Fortus 250mc 3D printer. The final result is an earbud that is unlike any other on the market today.
