I always liked the instructables robot, and always tried to somewhat make cool stuff with that robot like the instructable I made a couple of weeks ago : USB Powered Instructables Robot Night Lamp...

So one and a half week ago I was listening to Linkin Park - In The End and was searching the instructables website for cool instructables, and then when I saw an instructables robot made out of paper, I thought why not make myself a pair of instructables robot themed headphones, and out of that thought comes this instructable!

Here is a video!

So lets get started on making the headphones!

Step 1: Let's get the materials!

Picture of Let's get the materials!
So for this make all you need are :

Earbuds (1$ or cheaper)
Some cardboard and some posterboard (Posterboard is not necessary but would help)
Sponges (1$ (Make up sponges are the best))
Spray Paint (Silver : 3$ and Yellow : 3$)
Strong Glue (2$)
Scissors ( 3-5$)
2 Small Plastic Cups (1$)

Tools that would help but not necessary are :

Box Cutter
Cardboard Cutter
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks

Here are the links where you can get some of the materials!

kool homemade headphones

Glad you think its cool! Took some time to make but it was worth every second!
Nice, but those are huge and might hurt your ears after a while.

You should try making these out of headphone speakers instead of earbud speakers.

Good job though!

The idea at first was meant to use speakers but I did not have any in hand so I just used earbuds...And no they do not hurt your ears as they are very light....I always use them to listen to anything! They are on my head almost all day long!
