How to Make Your Own Beats By Dre Headphones (Except They'll Actually Sound Good)

By Kyle Wagner on at

So Beats By Dre headphones sound kind of terrible. Minus "kind of." But they sure are pretty. Film maker and Renaissance man Casey Neistat took it upon himself to turn an actually decent set of cans into beautiful black and red doppelgangers. And he made a how to video.

The plan, basically, is sand paper, stencils, spray paint, and patience. The project took Neistat three days, and he broke two camera lenses. He used Bose QC15s, but the process should work for any cans with a spray paintable surface. [YouTube]
