Just yesterday I was thinking that it might finally be time to pony up for some custom earbuds. But the price! Thankfully, the internet gods answered with this simple do-it-yourself guide. Ready to put some blue goop in your ears?
Yes, making custom, canal-hugging plugs will require you to endure a self-administered inner ear mould-taking - undoubtedly an uncomfortable experience. But it will totally be worth it! Cheap earbuds not only sound like shit, they drive listeners to crank their tunes to potentially damaging levels. So you're not just making these custom 'phones for you, you're doing it for your ear drums, too.
