HOUSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 14, 2014 — As forward-thinking technology company Changing Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: CHGT) examines new and exciting ways to commercialize the latest innovations, a recent news report suggests that 3D printing is set to become a game-changer in the multi-billion dollar headphone market.
While figurines, household items and even food are examples of smaller-scale items created by 3D printers for the consumer end user, ABC News reported last week that a New York-based company is now mass producing custom-fit earphones using advanced mobile and 3D-printing technologies.
Simply using a phone app and a photo, the earphones are custom-made, have a price-floor under $200 and can be delivered in two days.
NDP Group consumer electronics experts project earphone/headphone sales to exceed $2 billion in 2014. Apple Inc. recently purchased consumer electronics company Beats Electronics LLC (producers of Beats by Dre studio headphones) for a reported $3 billion.
“Consumers are finding that 3D printing can have a significant impact on their daily lives, and items they use can be produced significantly faster and less expensive than current mainstream options,” CHGT CEO Omar T. Durham said.
Changing Technologies, Inc. is transitioning to develop innovative concepts to bring 3D printing to mainstream users. Changing Technologies, Inc. plans to emulate other successful technology companies including Voxeljet AG (NYSE: VJET), Arcam AB (OTCBB: AMAVF), and ExOne Co. (NASDAQ: XONE).
