Teague's 13:30 is a 3D printable headphone that not only work the way you'd expect them to, but that you can build yourself using readily attainable components.

My first go resulted in a good-looking functional model created on a professional ABS FDM machine (Dimension 1200ES: print time 13 hours and 30 minutes, hence the name). It worked out well, but the machine we used isn't accessible to the average maker, and two of the critical parts relied heavily on soluble support printing -- a non-issue for professional 3D printers, a major issue for desktop 3D printers.
