Step 4: Connect the plug.

Unscrew the casing from the plug and then solder the red and black wires to the mono plug. The red wire should go to the small tab (audio). The black wire should go the larger tab (ground).

Pull the shoe lace as close to the plug as possible and then slide the cover back up towards the plug.

Make sure none of the connections are touching. Pull the cover up right to the base of the plug where the shoelace meets the wire connections. Fill the cover with hot glue and screw it on as quickly as possible. You may need to use your pliers to make the last few turns.

Let it dry. It should now be permanently closed.

Great, i like it 5+
where would you add a pot for the amplifier.
For those who think sockphones are just a bit too dorky, use the same principle and place the speakers in the ends of a folded small towel. I have seen comercial phones in this style, draped over the neck/shoulders. Wear them while exercising or bike riding.
comfy when you lay down?
This is a great idea, a lot of thought put into it. They look pretty goofy though, I think I'd reserve them for listening to music while I fall asleep. Inside, where no-one can see me.
i have the speaker from the phones but i was dumb enough to loose the pice that connect the to both the screw would there be any chance that you would know what it is
You can just strip wires, wrap them around the screws and tighten the screws down. The audio wires just need to make electrical contact with the speakers, you don't need specialized connections.
Nice work. You definitely put some time into these.
how do they sound?
It's much better than listening to music through the phone, but still not the best pair of headsets you've ever heard. It is mono after all. However, you can always swap out the electronics with a pair of stereo headphones.
nice very detailed but i never herd the word grommet though
You learn something new every day.
are those lime trees? =D<br/>
lemons!
awesome. Love the sock and the use of the opamp.
