Yes, they may seem like normal ear muffs. But these muffs are actually music-making ear socks of awesomeness.

Some background:
I love my ear muffs (180s's). For some weird reason, I hate having my ears exposed to the air (specifically cold air) and I tend to wear my ear muffs pretty much all the time (minus summer).
I like listening to music wherever I go, but I've always had trouble managing wired headphones - they always get scrambled up in my pockets. I bought some bluetooth headphones (motorola s9) on ebay a while ago, and they've served me well for many years. However, I've always had a problem managing headphones with ear muffs at the same time.

So I had a spark of innovation and decided to merge them together. Behold, wireless bluetooth headphone ear muffs.
Super easy to do, took a couple of hours.

Step 1: Annihilating the Headset

So about 4 years ago I bought a motorola S9 wireless bluetooth headset from Ebay (about 15 bucks). I picked these specifically because I was a palm user at the time and these were some of the only wireless sets that were compatible with my phone/palm.

Battery life was ok for me, no problems with connecting - they were perfect.
And then I wrecked it apart.

I unscrewed the base open to detach the ear "arms" and used a dremel (small rotary saw) to slice them off. I decided later to keep the base intact because it protected the circuit nicely and the on/off button and usb charging locations were convenient.

<p>1. It would probably work better with shrink wrap instead of electrical tape.</p><p>2. I am a guy. Hence I was born with a genetic disadvantage for sewing.</p><p>Stop that please. There's nothing genetically different that makes guys not know how to sew. It's all cultural. Source - I can sew amazing things and am an American dude. Home Ec class was one of my favorites.</p>
Awesome...I have a pair of wireless headphones that cracked open by accident...I'm totally gonna try this. :)
