Introduction: High-Tech Spy Stethoscope!
Step 1: What You Need...
1) Stethoscope. I picked mine up at a local drug store (Walgreens) for $10
2) A pair of Stereo Multimedia Microphones. Chosen because of the low cost and decent specs. $12 on Ebay.
3) 3.5mm (mini) Stereo Y-Adapter. ($0. I had one laying around but they are probably a couple of bucks)
Step 2: Disassembly...
I disassembled the multimedia microhones using an X-Acto knife and assorted tools. I cut it down the middle to get to the cabling and also popped the top off the header to get the mics out. I ended up with 2 mics and 3.5mm connectors.
Step 3: Stethoscope Disassembly...
Remove the earpieces from the Steth. Then I drilled out the earpieces to the diameter of the mic housings. I used a Dremel with a grinding attachment to fine tune it.
Step 4: Reassembly...
I used a small dot of hot glue and inserted the microphones into the earpieces and then reassembled the earpieces on the Stethoscope.
Step 5: Final Results!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
I also just found these mini multi Media Microphones but not sure the dissambly would be as easy as yours? yours were kind older model. So do you think these will work and mic can be removed like yours?
First, I was really impress with what you created with Stethosop, its ingenious.
I watched your video several times and I think I found a similar Audio cable Mic and
I wanted to show the ebay link and to make sure these will work?, when you open ebay ad, please select Option "with Mic" in the ad. Also, on the bottom of the ad they were just a whole bunch other cables listed just like these, its already has a mic and I guess I just need to get earpieces from the Steth to fit them in. And there is only connector at the end that would connect to the Y-adapter. wanted to get your check first and get feed back to see if I these work and If I understood your instructions before I purchase. I think these will work:
