Are you making this with an altoids tin if so where's you get the logo for Swiss tech

ok... good instructable... but you could have cut the ipod sized foam down alittle so the ipod sits lower thus not needing the extra notch and giving a cleaner overall look... but i liked this sadly it wont work with my swiss tech box as i have a classic 80gig also why do people use the ipod headphones? i know they come with it but i find them rather tinny... id recommend some skullcandy headphones...

I guess that is a good point but I just don't like having them sit around my neck all day as opposed to shoved in my pocket

then get the skullcandy In-ear FMJ

i use the ipod headphones because there free but also there small i wouldn't want to walk around town carting around big headphones when i can just jam the little white ones in my pocket

okoshima (author)kylethenerd2008-08-01

alas then you have never rocked upto someone with a good pair of headphones around your neck... instant convo starter and as for ipod headphones... most avoid all those who still use them... tinny and lacking in general

They hurt my ears. Then I got some in-ear skull candy and they were my favorite pair of headphones. But the they broke. I got another pair of in-ear ones that were'nt as good but they broke too. =( Then I got some over the ear ones and they have et to break.=) Well technically they did but the actual speakers part were fine so i still use them.

The HESH ones are Skullcandy's best for value isolation quality and durability. They feel so solid because they just are so solid, and are big and comfortable feeling.

oh my gosh skullcandy are the best. i got some for my bday and the in-ear factor blocks out so much noise and pumps the music straight into your rocks

okoshima (author)jackfr0st2008-04-14

i have lowriders... in ears bug me... but may endup getting a pair of skullcandy buds at some point... never had anything so crisp and clear... no matter how loud... and good bass response

I didn't think this would be that great, but I was wrong. This looks really cool as you said at the beginning. Nice job!
