Now, more recently I had purchased a pair of bluetooth headphones for my smart phone, and although I loved the wireless concept I wanted them to be practical as real headphones for my non-bluetooth devices. Otherwise I'd be taking two pairs of headphones to work, a wired pair for my laptop (which doesn't have bluetooth capabilities) and a wireless pair for my smart phone.
What a dilemma, eh?
While browsing around I had found another instructable where a user had velcro strapped a bluetooth adapter to his headphones and I wanted to do something similar, but a little more in depth with the wiring. Now I had an idea to make headphones that doubled as wired and wireless and I had a pair of headphones I wasn't worried about scrapping in the process.
(I'm aware now that they actually sell headphones that do both jobs, but what's the fun in that?)
Step 1: Ordering the bluetooth adapter
HDE Link on Amazon (If the adapter moves or is taken off of amazon, google it).
The pager-like case opened pretty easily by wedging a screw driver in the crack to separate the top and bottom.
The original idea I had was to wire the speakers and external jack straight to the board, but the circuit there was pretty small so I gutted a male headphone jack off a pair of earbuds and wired that up accordingly.
