Nicely done show about the history headphones. I wish I could save a copy for my library, 

would make a good teaching tool.

Not a comment on the utube vid posted by Mono above, but the same Zoe Laughlin did a BBC programme a couple of years back on 'How to build ... Headphones' (one of a short series of different objects, her being a product designer. Most sadly it turned out to be 'how to build a pair of headphones with no attempt to make them sound good.' The actual drivers (obviously what I was looking to see engineered, built and tailored) came off the shelf ... yep, how to build your own pair of beetroots!

Sigh. That sort of thing disappoints, me too. I saw a YT video (or series) a few years ago that claimed to show a guy building a camera from scratch. I was kinda "ya right" and then yep: He harvested a tree for the wood for the body, and then melted sand and borax etc. to make glass for the lens (and I think made tintype plates). Not sure this is the same video, but this one is pretty impressive. Also 22min long.
