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!

Somebody should track this kid down and hire him. He must be college age or better now.
 HOW?!?! With the soldering iron?

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?
