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
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.
Step 2: Amping up the Speakers
No science necessary. I looked through my drawers and found the pair of headphones that gave me the best and loudest sound out of the many I've collected over the years (store-bought/phone sets/airplanes/etc).
Popped out the speakers and re-soldered them in exchange of the headset's. Cut some covers from another pair, and black taped it all together.
