What are the personal/individual audio cones are museums called? Is it possible to make one at home relatively inexpensively?

I can't find any information on them. This may be because I don't know what they're called, and so I couldn't really adequately look to see if this has even been asked before. Regardless, these are sort of halves of spheres that hang from above and project audio onto guests of museums. You also sometimes see them at internet and computer gaming cafe's.
So, what're they called?
How do they work?
Can I make one relatively cheaply?
