Well, as far as I know, most cosplayers use thick cardboard, and sturdy headbands. You could just made cardboard covers over old, thick headphones though.

For my Miku headset, a nearly identical design to Rin's, I created it out of one ordinary black headband, with the actual "ear muff" parts being made out of insulation foam.

To make the "ear muffs" I drew the shape out onto insulation foam (not sure exactly how thick it was, but it was a standard size, I just picked it up at Home Depot, nothing fancy) and cut it out with an exacto knife. From there, I carved the details in and also cut out a large section and covered it with a clear red plastic.

Here is a silly little step-by-step I just whipped up for someone else who was asking me about my Miku headset~ http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v638/whoatiger/headset.jpg
Hope that helps explain a little better what i'm talking about.
By the way, the pins I am talking about are these things: http://www.sz-wholesale.com/shenzhen_China_products/LED-Flashing-Pins_1.htm
I see them all the time in dollar stores, but if you don't have any luck finding them there, they are widely available online. And the best part is, it doesn't really matter what shape they are, as they are hidden inside the headset. For example, in my headset, I have a bird one, a Canadian Mountie, and two golf clubs, lol.

After you are done assembling the "ear muffs", simply glue them onto the head band and voila!

For the microphone, I bought a cheap headset from Walmart, cut off the microphone from it, and glued it onto the right "ear muff".

So, I actually was thinking of doing a Vocaloid cosplay group with friends, and what I had planned on was using a old pair of headphones and modifying them. I usually will see a set when I go to Goodwill, and figured with some clay I could form it. That's just my 2 cents though.

Rin's headphones seem pretty flat... you could get a .040" thick styrene sheet and cut the shape you need, then glue it on top of 1 or 2 white foamies cut in the same shape to make them seem thicker and just attach it to the headband. The plastic would give a really smooth and paintable surface as well. ^^

Well, I'm also making Rin ones for my friend as we're doing a group cosplay. I've already made my Hatsune Miku headphones. To make the headphones I got some old headphones and cut off the cords. Sadly, I had no microphone anyway, then I got some cardboard from an old cardboard box, I got some velvet as I had no black paper or black cardboard and I glued the velvet onto the card board that I'dve cut out in the shape of Miku/Rin's head phones then I waited for it to dry just a little bit then I got some red foam and glued it onto the right spot. I cut out 4 little rectangles and coloured them in black and stuck 2 on in the right place below the red foam. Then I did that for the other headphone as well. After it dried a little bit I cut out 4 little yellow squares of paper and glued 2 onto each headphone in the right place. Then I stuck the headphones (cardboard edited pieces) and turned them side ways got some ductape (I had only blue, but that doesn't matter) if the ductape isn't black then get some more cardboard and stick it infront of the blue ductape. Don't worry it's still comfortable.
