Reassembly Headphones Into a High Quality Case




Introduction: Reassembly Headphones Into a High Quality Case

We are gonna make a high quality headphones from a broken ones and a insolated earmuffs.

Step 1: Materials

  • (Broken) headphones

We need the speakers.

  • Insulated earmuffs

It will be the new case for our headphones

  • Male and female 3,5 audio jack (optional)

Step 2: Obtaining the Pieces

From old headphones we can obtain:

  • The speakers

It are the most important part of the project. (I shape it for a better assembly)

  • Audio Wire.

If you can't optain it from the headphones (It could be broken) you can get it from other earphones, internet or your local hardware store.

I bought the insulated earmuffs months ago for studying, but if you don't have it in your house it are available in online shops, hunting stores...

Step 3: Preparing the Earmuffs

Now we have to do three holes in the earmuffs: two for the wire and other for the female audio jack.

Then insert the female audio jack into his hole.

Step 4: Conections

The circuit is so easy. Conect the wires following the pictures with the help of a welder and tin.

To do the external wire you can recycle te one of the headphones.

Step 5: Final Asembly

Now set the speaker between the foam with a little of glue.

I recommend to use a cloth for better results.

    Thought about doing this a few times myself. Have you seen any less quality of the sound after building your own setup? That would be my main concern. When you move the speakers from one set and into another larger chamber, did it drop the tonal quality? Nice project either way.

    On the contrary it sounds better nevertheless my headphones were of mid/low profile.
