I spent $15 on headphones the other day. I realized that the company probably made them for less than $5, which is ridiculous. I decided to set out to make my own headphones, ones that would shut sound better. Thus, the 5 Minute Super Easy Noise Cancellation Headphones were born. Links are provided for the specific headphones and earmuffs I used on the last step.
Step 1: Supplies
You will need:
-Noise canceling ear muffs. I used Howard Leight LM-7's
-A cheap pair of over-the-head headphones. I got a pair of Koss KPH-6's for under $5.
-Around 10-15 minutes
Let's get started!
Step 2: Inserting the Headphones Into the Earmuffs
Basically, you just want to take the headphones out of their original enclosure (mine just snapped out) and insert them into each side of the earmuffs until they fit snug. They shouldn't have to lean against the side of them, they should be against the back portion. Once all that is completed, put a piece of your electrical tape on the bottom of the earmuffs on the wire so it doesn't irritate your earlobe like it did mine. See the pictures below. The steps are the same for the other side, too.
Step 3: You're Done!
Now all of that should have only taken you 10-15 minutes depending on how tough it was for you. I hope you enjoyed my first Instructable. please critique me!

For the earmuffs, I suggest you find a newer upgraded model since these are pretty much outdated.
