Introduction: Listen to Your Electronics!

Picture of Listen to Your Electronics!

Welcome to my first (and very simple) instructable!

This is a simple experiment that you can do almost for free.

What you will need:

  • Headphones/Earphones
  • Any kind of coil - almost any length/size will do.
  • 2 Alligator clip wires

What does it sound like?

Step 1: Setting Up

Connect the two alligator clip wires to each ends of the coil.

Connect one clip to the ground of your headphone jack (bottom part)

Then connect the other so that it touches both of the top 2 contacts.

Step 2: Listen

Put on the headphones and place the coil on various electronics (wall adapters, phones, laptops)

You'll be able to hear strange noises from your devices.

Try to see how interacting with your devices changes the sound!

Thank you for viewing.
