So I bought a PMP (Portable Media Player
) from Hong Kong so i could play my NES games with the on-board emulator wherever was convenient. Long road trips, flights, waiting rooms, etc. are places that I like to kill time with portable media but the only trouble was that the on-board emulator only had one volume......MAXIMUM
. My earbuds of choice didn't have adjustable volume so i needed a solution to turn the game music down a little, I ended up coming up with the 3.5mm Earbud/Headphone Volume Adjuster.
Turns out I'm not the only one with this idea, I did a quick search on Youtube and found this tutorial
! I was even able to find a few commercial versions of this idea out there but they were $10-20.
