Basic soldering skills recommended, minimal list of parts.
By using a ziplock bag, you make your ipod or MP3 player splashproof , so you can listen to it while in the shower.
Step 1: Headphone cables
Use a cutter, but be very careful not to slice the cable.
Most of us have cheap earphones that were given to us by an airline.
I use these as the cable is relatively thick and easy to strip.
You only need the plug and 50 cm of wire.
Alternatively you can buy a plug and wire.
Step 2: Open the radio-cassette
Keep all the screw, and (if possible) remember where they came from.
Step 3: Recording head
There are 3 wires connected to it.
One white, one red and a ground.
Solder them off, or cut them off.
Step 4: Disconnect the motor
The player will be quiter without the motor hiss.
Insulate the wires you cut off.
Step 5: Connect the wires & test
Of course white to white. Red to red. Ground to ground.
Test the whole setup to see if it works, then insulate them well.
Step 6: Make a holder for the ipod or MP3
Use a plastic box to hold your MP3 player or ipod in place, so it won't slip.
You can even splashproof it with a ziplock.
Step 7: Listen to the music
Use a low volume setting on your MP3 or ipod, otherwise you'll have distorted sound.
