Earbuds Designed For Your Ears

Custom made to fit you perfectly

Do you ever put in earbuds and realize how some of them are entirely uncomfortable, too big, or too small? Some of them fall out or can just be super annoying. Logitech has created a brand that offers a solution to this problem. The brand called Ultimate Ears or UE has built headphones that are molds of your ears and fit perfectly. They have created a way to customize headphones that are undeniably comfortable with the help of 3D laser scanning.

Though this seems like the latest and greatest invention that could help block out excess sounds and allow professionals to drown out other sounds while on stage. It is actually costly to get your hands on this new product. For the last few years, this company has lowered the price and still gives customers customized headphones.

How are they doing this? They have created UE Fits. It is a pair of headphones that cost $250 instead of a few thousand, and all you have to do is put them in your ears. After one minute of holding them in your ear, the pair of headphones automatically mold into the shape of your ear. Best of all? They are just as good as the customized pairs that have to use 3D laser scanning to get accurate measurements.

Why do companies choose 3D laser scanning

Though this process is expensive for consumers, the 3D laser scanning equipment is relatively budget-friendly for companies to use. It is a way to get accurate measurements without having to touch or poke someone. Best of all, it is entirely non-invasive, meaning it won’t harm the person being scanned.

It uses lasers and sensors to compile data of a person or object. It can get every nook and cranny easily. The lasers are being measured by the distance they travel. It collects information like sizes, dimensions, depths, widths, textures, and even colors. There is no other tool that is like 3D laser scanning.

What can you do with the information

The coolest thing about the information that 3D laser scanning collects is that you can do multiple things with it. The user who collects this information can have it sent to a CAD or computer-aided design program to edit and view the detailed image.

From there, it can be sent as a 3D file to someone else, turned into virtual reality, or it can be made into a 3D model. No matter what the user chooses, it will be accurate and precise, and easy to replicate.

Final thoughts

3D laser scanning was created in the 1960s but wasn’t adopted until the 1990s. Since then, many companies worldwide have picked up the technology because of the wonderful benefits it provides. Nothing else can compare to this tool, and it has allowed us to explore in great detail and create easier than ever before. Now there are even apps consumers can use as 3D laser scanning devices. It has become a hot commodity.
