Introduction: Skull Candy Headphone Modification

About: I'm an experimentalist, a scientist and I have a tendency to do things just for the sake of doing them, or to find out what they're like. I love life, show me something I can feel good about. I've got an ho…

I was a little annoyed with my mp3 player, in that I wanted to hang it around my neck but the wires weren't quite right.

One short section of electrical insulation and a bit of fiddling was all I needed.

Step 1: Materials

I now have some Skull Candy Ear buds, the original Sony things hurt my ears after about 10 min...
You need a small soft and flexible tube. I cut a bit of plastic insulation, but you could make one from tape or many other things

Step 2: Looping

This is simple, follow the pictures.
The looping gives a "necklace" and a section to adjust the length.
The headphones can be parked when out of your skull.

>Hang the wire around your neck, with the audio-jack and headphones pointing towards your feet.
>Pull a loop on the headphones-end through the tube.
>Push the audio-jack through the tube.
>Connect the mp3 player.
>Adjust the lengths of wire to suit.
>Where the L & R wires join / separate there is a black lump: push that into the tube to wedge the wires in place.
