How to use this invisible earphones?
        First you need to put a tiny magnet in one of  your ears or put two in both of  your ears. Then you need to wear a coil necklace which is connected with an amplifier. Next connect your mp3 player to the amplifier.  Cover the coil necklace and the amplifier properly with your clothes.Turn it on. Now you can enjoy music without being noticed by other people. You can use another small magnet to get it out.  This sort of Invisible headphones is sold on ebay.

(Warning : Don't put the magnet deeply in your ear. Although there is no medical proof that says magnets will cause trouble to your ear , it's better not to use this device for a long time. Magnetic fields can disrupt the operation of some internal medical devices such as pacemakers.Neodymium magnets are made with special powders and coatings, so they are very fragile. They are often plated with a metal such as nickel. The magnets can fracture at temperatures over 150 °C, or under impact as a result of their own acceleration. When this happens, in some cases the magnets may break apart so suddenly that flying pieces can cause injury.
Make sure that there are no magnets around you, when you use this device. These magnets can move with surprising force when exposed to another magnet or magnetic field.

If you don't know what you can do with this device. please watch this video. (Just for Fun

Step 1: How invisible earphones work

Picture of How invisible earphones work
How normal speaker work.jpg
As you know, in a normal speaker. The magnet stays still.  The coil vibrates producing sound. Unlike the normal speaker, when this device is working , the coil necklace which is around your neck stays still.  The magnet vibrates in your ear producing sound.

I have made it and it work very well thantks to you ! i have the LM386-1 and only 3 accus of 1,5V !! i have put the tiny magnet in plasticine.

please can you help to make coil necklace how mich turn i need for the best result

do you have ohm meter?

i didnt remenber very well but i think 60 meters of 0,28mm varnish copper wire , dt forget to take off the varnish before soldering

are these magnetic coils?

I wonder if you could create a tooth cap for the magnet so it'd vibrate through your jaw and you'd hear it that way.

Coil better work when you have coil resistion 8 Ohm because output impedanse (resistin) of amplifier is 8ohm, you can calculate how long you need wire, and with amplifier better use 2x9v battery, because gain is better, sorry for bad eng, i am from Serbia :D

brat moj!

hahaha :D

Can someone make the Project on the Fritzing Please it will be very helpful :)

it's basically this one: http://fritzing.org/projects/altoids-amp . not exact the same circuit but anyways an amplifier with switch and poti to control the output

To the people that say that the magnetic fielddof this device its serious Nicolo them what
For the regular speakers not so serious is the magnetic fielddd
Moroccan plz

will it work even the magnet is outside the coil?

If I were to take this kit https://www.jameco.com/Jameco/Products/ProdDS/151204.PDF
and solder the coil necklace where the speaker should go, and then solder the input cord where the microphone should be, would it be similar to your design?
Or would it even work at all?

hi i have all done but i need how to make coil necklace and how much turn i need for the best result plz!!!!!!!!!????????

Frank_GuYun (author)  tomjoe773 years ago
Your idea is right. The only problem is that this circuit includes an additional operational amplifier LM1458 to amplify the small signal from the microphone.

You can watch this amazing 5 minutes video to know more about op-amp.
Frank_GuYun (author)  Frank_GuYun3 years ago
The output signal from a mp3 player is much stronger than the output signal from a normal microphone. So a LM1458 is used to pre amplify the signal from the microphone.

great instructable ill try it just one queestion... while more turns give around the coil more impedance? jeje sory but im not that much familiar with electronics and more ohms more power to the magnetic field?
Frank_GuYun (author)  neoygeo6662 years ago
You are right. More turns do give around the coil more impedance . But the increase in impedance is not the major influence in this case.

hi i have all done but i have a problem with coil necklace how much turn i need for the best result plz help me????!!!
