great job bud....

If you could only be able to create a cover for it out of acrylic or something, then you can start selling headphones of high quality! :P
Clever! I cannot believe you actually made functioning headphones out of the kind of junk EVERYONE has lying around. Good work!

Excellent work Prince. I was wondering if there are any other folks from Africa, any other developing regions, posting on instructables. I've been spending a lot of time in Uganda and Guatemala and the things I saw people building in both countries was absolutely astounding. Everything from pedal powered water pumps, to home made welders. I would imagine the only thing keeping them from instructables is the cost of a high speed internet connection. Do you have any ideas of how we could help facilitate more of these postings?
