I saw someone that once took a set of those big noise-suppressing headsets, put an Aura 2" full range driver in each of the cups, and rocked

Looked decidedly '80s and was probably deafening, but a neat idea nonetheless...

Electrostatic headphones are the easiest to build, although they are the most dangerous kind to wear:

Commercial electrostatic phones do not present any real danger to
the user.
I have been using them for 20 years without trouble.
I have never read of a case of injury caused by them.

On the other hand diy-ing the phones and designing and building
the high voltage amps used to drive them could be dangerous if
the builder is inexperienced and unaware of the risks.
