Sony MDR 1000X bracket 3D print model

So I decided to design the entire bracket of the Sony MDR 1000X headphones because the plastic is very fragile on them and broke on a regular use.


You have to print the parts with rafts and supports. Infill is 100% and I printed at 25-35mm/s speed. PRINT ON A SIDE! Set the parameter Support Z distance (in Cura) which is the distance from the top/bottom of the support structure to the print a little bit lower so it will act like a stabilizer (they will be glued together a little bit) After you finish to clean the supports, sand a little bit the clips that connect the parts to each other. Try to assemble them once before you mount them on the headphones. To lock the screws better in the plastic I used a thread lock paste. Take in consideration that the walls of the parts are a little bit thicker to be stronger than the original !!! Last picture shows how the model should look on the build plate after is sliced.


I also added the step, igs files if you want to make some changes to the parts.

Thanks for buying and please don't forget to rate my model, like or leave a comment.

      I just looked at both models and they seem to pretty look alike....I'm not 100% sure though. In case you try it could you tell me if it works for those headphones too?

        I looked again and they are not the same ...there are some differences that my model doesn't have

          Damn) I already managed to be a little happy) More thanks for analyzing. It’s a pity I don’t know how to model. It's bad that the headphones are made of fragile plastic ((

        Nice model! Quick question - is this an exact replica, or a reinforced version (is it thickened at the usual breaking point near the hinge)?

          Well is a replica made entirely by me and is a little bit thicker than the original one...For now it didn't show any kind of fatigue of the material or any cracks. The model works great but if you want to make changes you have the necessary files (step,soldiworks,igs)

          Seems to be robust. The fit was not perfect between the two pieces on each side but maybe that was more due to my friends 3D printer rather than the model. Also, attaching the pieces to each other took quite some force but maybe I was doing it wrong or maybe it's just required. Anyway, it's been used for a few months now without any issues.

          I'd rather leave a neutral feedback, but ok, lets make it positive: parts snap together. But the replacement part is not a good fit for original part. Also, it's not very easy to print one of the models - it's not very easy to print with normal supports, but with tree supports it warps (I printed in ABS), I had to tweak different settings but finally managed to get it printed. What's even more positive: actually parts may not need any postprocessing if your printer's esteps and flow are calibrated. It's not snapping perfectly but it snaps without any sanding.

          It was printed on an EOS P396 sls printer so I can rate only considering that printing quality. The build is precise, does the job!

          It worked and the seller was very helpful. My headphones are like new now!! I highly recommend this.
