When assembling a binaural head, ears will be needed. Its is possible to order silicone one online, usualy at a cost above 50€.

3D printing ears can be a low cost an practical solution when a 3D printer is available.

The material used with 3D printer, PLA or ABS, lack the flexibility of the silicon or natural ear tissue, but it give a decent result for the price and time.
We initialy worked with ears from the sharing wensite thingiverse.

But the lack the distinctive concha concavity of real ears witch play a role in the binaural process.

Over the years, we tried to design more neutral looking and acoustic efficient ears.
