Create Your Own Listening Style with Aerial7 Tank DIY Headphones (Giveaway)

Searching for comfort and great sound quality in headphones? Look no further than Aerial7 Tank DIY, which allows your inner artist to design your very own headset. Do it yourself with the included markers, or branch out with watercolors, spray paint, and even nail polish.

The Tank comes with two cables (one cable includes a mic) to fit almost all types of music devices, an adapter and a stringed storage bag. The headband is adjustable and the ear cushioning is thick, both adding to comfort.

My Thoughts on the Tank DIY

The Do It Yourself aspect of the Tank made these headphones fun and created family bonding time for me and my 13 year old daughter. We looked through the page of finished projects for inspiration from Drew Brophy, who collaborated with Aerial7 on this project. We chose to use the markers for the ear cups to write the name of my daughter’s favorite band, Teen Top, and water color paints to create a pastel styled look.

After our creation was done (we will be adding more), the listening began. First of all, I loved that they cut out the noise around me. I’ll be taking these on my next flight so I can relax and fall asleep. The sound was amazing! It felt like surround sound in the movies. I had a slight issue with my ears feeling squished after keeping them on for over an hour, so I took a few breaks.

My daughter gave the sound quality two thumbs up. She liked hearing the bass come through and called it “crisp”. Maybe you have to be younger to understand that term, but since she uses them constantly, I know she really likes them.

  1. Stacey B says

    I would give this to my 5 yr old son who is the little artist, and let him draw whatever he wanted. He’s creative!

  2. Michelle Munn says

    I would gift these to my Son and inscribe his name over the top and decorate in green and blue , with purple his favorite colors.

  3. Anne Lehnick says

    I would actually share these with my niece, so I’d need to collaborate with her on how they would be decorated. She may, in fact, hijack the entire project.

  4. Christine Jensen says

    I am not incredibly artistic so I would go with mostly solid colors, like blue or green, maybe with large polka dots




  6. James says

    Well, personally, I would start by taping over the earmuff parts & the padding on the bottom of the headband so you can do them by hand with markers afterwards, but the main gist, would be to use spray paint can polyurethane (which comes out as a sticky gloss coat more less, & then sprinkle gold glitter over it & do it over & over in light coats until the entirety of the headphones minus the padding & inner earmuffs are covered. Then after that’s been sprayed over a couple more times to make sure it stays long term, take off the tape, & do the padding by hand with colored markers. Not totally sure exactly what I’d do but would probably wind up doing some full spectrum, all colors used, rainbow tie-dye looking patterns or something along those lines, we’d just have to see, that’s part of the fun of art, you know?! : D

  7. nathan jhon says

    So cool that we can design our own headphones. I would surely put a Cross sign on both sides as a symbol of my faith God the Father and his son Jesus.

  8. says

    I wouldn’t design them, my son would and he’d probably figure out some way to make a Star Wars theme out of them. He’s been looking for a good set of headphones!

  9. Cindy B says

    I would gift these to my grandson. He’d design them with the Arizona Cardinals logo!

  10. says

    My 12 year old son has been and avid artist sine he was little. He draws nonstop and has sooo many sketchbooks I don’t know what to do with them all. This would be so much fun for him at Christmas time. Especially since his newest set has a paper clip holding it together. lol


  11. Gabby says

    For me, i would draw a peace symbol on both sides of the headphone. And i would use some spray paints and design it anything i want. And of course, i wanna try this out !

  12. Tara Liebing says

    I would design these with the help of my son because he is the artistic one. He would have so much fun designing these

  13. corina parsons says

    I would definatly decorate them with my 9 year old daughter cause she loves headphones and music! We would probably do pink colors with peace signs, stars, moons, and hearts!

  14. JaH Nice says

    I should draw something that is attractive to the eyes. Something that people would want to stop and look at. Maybe an ocean view, animals or even just the sunset for Tank Headphones.

  15. Emelyn says

    Design some flowers or a horse or a dragon all in black pen. I can’t imagine how beautiful it would be on my Tank.

  16. Ivy Hope says

    Draw the hunger games symbol or Rue. I love Rue. Draw the silouhete of a bird flying in front of a sunset. 😉

  17. Almz says

    The best drawings I have done are simple objects that surround me. I drew my my car keys. Yeah it sounds pretty boring, but after 2 hours of detail and shading, those set of keys looked real, so I’ll will try this on Tank Headphones.

  18. says

    I would let my daughter decorate them however she wanted. Right now she is interested in birds so she would probably draw parrots on them, but it will change next week.

  19. Ann Fantom says

    My daughter is the artistic one. I’m sure she would use markers to make rainbows on these headphones (She loves rainbows)

  20. Charese Williamson says

    This is perfect for my daughter Paris who is six years old. The biggest artist in the family her teacher last year said that it isn’t often that you see a little girl like her age so gifted with art work (then she was 5). I know this is the perfect gift for my little butterfly she would put a serious art twist on them. thank you for giving her the oppurtunity to win! :-)

  21. Desiree Dyer says

    well me and my daughter would do it on a rainy day.. and ik exactly what she would put on it.. DINOSAURS! lol my little princess loves them! trex, long neck.. and a thousand that only she knows!

  22. Rosalind says

    I’m unsure how they would be decorated, but they would make a great gift for my son since I’m unable to work due to prior back surgery.

  23. serena adkins says

    This would be an awesome christmas present for my son. He loves playing the i pad but sometimes the music is just too loud. I bought him a pair of head phones from pottery barn kids but they don’t work that well. I need something for him with good quality and that will work when I don’t want to hear the loud noise from his i pad. Thank you.

  24. Mona Evanochko says

    WOW! what a great idea… as an Art Teacher … I would stress over getting the perfect Design on them, I would probably start with a butterfly some where, and go from there.

  25. Renee Gregson says

    I would let my son design them he would be much better at it than me, thank you for the chance to win these, they look really cool, Happy Holidays to all

  26. Crystal F says

    I would give them to my daughter and I’m sure she would decorate them with something to do with softball. Our lives revolve around her softball schedule and it’s all she talks about and thinks about. Thank you!

  27. Kel H says

    How fun, getting to add your own creativity to a product is always a big plus, lets see –the color purple and some glitter would have to be included, would probably be bold and freeform, no real structure to the design — or could go the other way and doodle lots of lil things — butterflies, flowers, etc……either way they would be mine.

  28. Sharon says

    These would be perfect for my kid. I would let him design them however he wanted, but I know that there would be a lot of red on them!

  29. Laurie Bolduc says

    I would write all the names of the singers/bands/groups that my kids like and then add some colours. My kids would love it.

  30. Tammy J. says

    My youngest daughter and I love doing Zentangles. We would decorate them together with those kinds of designs, and then I’d give them to her. :)

  31. Maryann D. says

    My daughter is an artist so she would design these headphones. She loves to draw animals, so she would put owls, cats, dogs with designs in bright colors.

  32. Shealynn says

    I would doodle all over them in Sharpie, with tons of celtic knotwork designs since I’m big into drawing that. And I’d add a Doctor Who quote. ^_^

  33. Robyn L says

    I would get my niece, Taylor, to design them for me using nail polish to
    draw pretty butterflies and grass on; I love butterflies

  34. LadyVampire says

    As a fantasy artist, I am definitely going to do a rolling landscape, a blue sky with clouds, dragons soaring overhead and unicorns running past a castle. 😉 Thanks for the fantastic giveaway and Happy Holidays to you.

  35. Leona says

    Id give them to my girls and have 1 do an ear and 1 do the headpiece. I don’t know how they would decorate them but I’m sure it would be colorful and beautiful!

  36. Tokekmise says

    My nine year old daughter is an artist, drawing all the time. She would love these and I would let her pick how to design them. I bet there would be flowers, birds, fairys.

  37. Emily Schauer says

    I would totally have my kids do a watercolor abstract, my son’s on one side and my daughter’s on the other…thats a two-fer….awesome craft and great electronic!!!!

  38. Angela Cisco says

    I’d have my son do whatever he wanted to them. He is always designing clothing and drawing pictures. He would have so much fun making this special.

  39. Acmommy3 says

    So neat! If I were keeping these for myself, I’d decorate with a floral watercolor design with an inspirational quote flowing through it. :)

  40. Shirley Hicks says

    id let my son decide what he wnted on sure it would be interesting..something to do with NASA im sure

  41. Robby Rob says

    i would give them to my daughter. she’s quite the little artist and loves listening to music. i would let her design how she sees fit.

  42. says

    My son would probably draw windmills, Teletubbies, Arthur on this. Since he’s the one who would use it to block out noise when it gets overwhelming, I’ll just let him, :)

  43. Lisa Garner says

    I would let my teenage daughter design these and she would probably make a rainbow theme.

  44. Candace Butler says

    I love to paint and would try some kind of wildlife or just landscape. Not sure how good it would come out but it would be fun to try.

  45. says

    I am SO not artistic…so I would let my daughter design them…which would probably mean pink and purple hearts and peace signs and the word “Love” all over. Which is fine by me. :)

  46. Tonya Dean says

    These would be for my daughter who would probably decorate with skulls and penguins. She has that all over her notebooks.


  47. mary gardner says

    i would have my daughter decorate them – not sure what design she would use, but it would have lots of bright colors!

  48. Sarah Madrigal says

    When my daughter and I start our DIY projects we get out our stickers, stamps, and paint. Then we look at out item for a little while to spout ideas. Then we get to work. I am sure the headbands would be a pink and purple intertwined with “DO NOT TOUCH” on top of the coloring. My daughter puts that on everything because her brothers like to borrow her things.
    The ear part of the headphones would be stamped with my daughters favorite butterfly’s.

  49. Jennifer Peaslee says

    I would give the kit to my niece and let her design her own headphones. She’d probably draw suns and flowers, it would be so fun! jenniferpeaslee at gmail dot com
