If you want to hear music in bed but don't want to fall asleep and get choked by the 'phones or 'buds, here are some mini speakers for you.
I warn you the sound isn't great but it's pretty good for an altoids tin. Besides, if it's quiet in your room it's good enough.
*Regular size altoids tin(1.76 oz)
*Headphones you won't want back(cheap ones)
*felt(for the inside of the tin)
*Scissors or other cutting tool(optional, but recommended)
*Foam adhesive(better and neater than tape)
Step 1: Headphone surgery
Take your cheapo headphones. I'm sorry i couldn't provide a picture, but it's fairly simple. Take the soft pads of the earphones(keep 'em for later). Then use pliers to remove them from the head set. The 'phones usually are latched in. The latches must be broken, but they are plastic so it's easy. Wear goggles in case the plastic breaks off and hits you in the face. Safety first right? After this step you will have the "speakers" and the earpads. Throw away the headband part.
I finished this before the instructable, so I am showing you the finished version. You can get the idea either way. Hope it's not confusing. This is my first instructable so comment.
Step 2: Prepare the tin
Eat the altoids in the tin. Then cover the inside of the tin with felt. Glue the felt to anchor it. You can just use elmers. You can get the felt real cheap at craft stores. I used green for mine; a sort of "pool table" look.
You can see I lined the top and the bottom with the felt(inside the tin)
Then cut an opening in the tin on the side so when you close the tin the cord can come out.
