Sound Blocking Headphones

Ear defenders are a headphone like apparatus that you wear over your ears to prevent auditory damage while either using a gun, working with woodworking power tools, or attending a rock concert... - KryptoTSD
Sorry, but what's an "ear defender"? Never heard of it. In technical writing like this, it's a good idea to explain unusual things like that, rather than assuming everyone knows what they are. - ander
Thank you! He is very self-starting and actually brought all the parts to me and asked if he could get the tools out and see what was possible.
I really can't think of another word for them - maybe they're called something different in the US? They are hearing protection for use in high sound areas - you often see celebrity children wearing them backstage at rock concerts etc. They are like headphones but with lots of padding to cut down exterior noise and obviously no speakers or cables etc. Kinda like ear muffs but to cut out noise, not keep ears warm.
awesome! I am about to start this project, thank you for the well detailed instructable - BlakeV4
Excellent job! I commend you for not only helping your kids with their needs, but teaching them and allowing them to know they have control over building their own creations to help themselves in life situations. I've worked with many kids who have had autism or Asperger's in the past and an overwhelming majority of them show affinity for taking things apart, tinkering, and building things from the pieces. I was actually thinking of doing something similar to this by buying a pair of bluetooth headphones so they could be wireless! Nicely done to both of you! - gravityisweak
