DIY noise isolated Headphones 2.5

Picture of DIY noise isolated Headphones 2.5
  This is my Second time Doing this headphone project .  I decided to create this instructable :  in hopes of aiding anyone ;  in way other guides might not.
  Practicality of such a project varies , I will try to address a few circumstances. For me this project was ideal; being that i  have Four pairs of headphone drivers ( speakers) that came from old broken headsets: each more expensive than the last.  I rather have a little fun and save a few bucks, than buy some new ones. .

You will  need :
    Drivers 
        
- salvage them from a  broken headset 
        - or sacrifice a working unit
        - or Buy them individually (google shop search: Helment Speakers)
        - or find subwoofers , mid range , and tweeter drivers small enough to fit into your contraption
          (powering them might get tricky)
   Earmuffs
       
- my first hack was with a set of  red nascar earmuffs from a Big5 sporting good store.
          they were  on clearance at $4.99 i spent a little more on this project,
           to achieve something more durable and with a nicer look.
        - get your earmuffs from wherever you want ,  thrift stores are a great place
          if saving money is an objective
   Tools
        - solder iron, solder wire,
        - drill gun (i recommend a drill press if u can access one)
        - electrical tape
        - double sided tape
        - wire cutters, wire strippers or a simple razor ( depends on your cable type)
