Sorry for the quality of the pictures it was taken with my cell phone in low light.
Please leave a comment and rate my instructable i like to know what needs to be improved/changed.
Step 1: Materials
small philups head screwdriver
What I had:(if you don't have some/all of these things the overall cost will go up.)
1/4 stereo to 1/8 headphones jack(shown below)
old headphones (preferably not right angle)
What I bought:
SPST Momentary pushbutton switches 2 pack(275-0609)($3.69)
5x2 1/2x2" project enclosure(270-1803)($3.39)
Step 2: Removing the headphone jack
depending on if your headphones have one wire that splits in to to(like the ipod ones) or just have two wires attached together you'll have to do this differently.
I have headphones that are one wire so what I did was I cut the wire two inches from the jack then uses scissors to cut the plastic off the jack. once the plastic was off I pulled the wire out of the insulation.
if your head phones have two wires do the same thing except you will have four wires.
so when thats done you should have a jack with 3 wires coming out of it
