headphones -revisited- by saruman-23 headphones -revisited- by saruman-23
a model of my headphones, modelled in 3ds max and rendered in v-ray advanced. music is a fairly huge part of my life - and headphones come hand in hand with that. these are my lifeline, whenever i'm away from my computer :)

the model itself took around 10 hours to get right. there was a LOT of fiddly stuff to get right, including a very nice "sony" boolean on the outerside of the headband :)

materials took around 2 hours, the render took 2 to setup as well. (materials and render were worked at the same time)

render itself took 4 hours 35 minutes.

-e- i have now revisited this render, i have modelled the fateful jack properly, and improved the materials. i have also added a simple texture to the headphones. 4 hours and 50 minutes later, i am comfortable with the render now :) -e-

Perfectly exceptional!  If you are looking for some constructive criticism, it looks like you rendered with low samples - it looks a bit grainy in areas.  If your not, this is amazing, with some real mastery getting the 3.5mm headphone jack right!

These gotta be very popular by now, I can see them every day, I own ones for some eight years. Anyway, nice render, even after six years.

Really great render! The grainy-silver surface on the headphones has noise material, or that's achieved with the renderer?

Hey I picked up a set of these for my PC recently! MDR-V300 i think...
You know those long tubes of foam-like pipe insulation for a buck or two?
well there is a long slit of peel-off sticky tape in the center and if you cut another
slit beside it a 1/4 inch or so from it you get perfect cushioning to tape onto the inside
of the top plastic headband if it bugs your scalp too much...
Course, hair might help that too...

whoa dude...that's some serious talent...believe me, i did nothing but sit and stare at this for two mins...

if i may point out, u can see that the top black part(the part that sits on the top of ur head) is not smooth...should hav increased the number of segments...

saruman-23 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2007
thanks a lot for the compliment, it's cool that people are still enjoying this so long after i've made it.

the top section is smooth; in fact the whole model is meshsmoothed to 2 iterations (off the top of my head, possibly 3 but i doubt i needed it that high). i do see what you mean though, it does look jagged. i have investigated with my renders, and it's just down to the shape of the headrest, and the angle of the render.

thanks for the good comment though :)

no problem...i faced this with my Pandora's Box too...in the viewport, the edges seemed smooth, but after i had posted it, a good friend of mine noticed the jagged edges...dunno why...
