Put the cable on your head and bend it to make the shape of the head phone. If the hole in
the lid is small you can remove the ends of the insulation.

Put the cable through the hole in the lids and bend it at the back of the lids. Wrap the wire around the cable.

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?
