Intro: A Quick Improvement to the Infamous Jackhammer Headphones
First off. Thanks to TimAnderson for the great idea (https://www.instructables.com/id/E8UBD2SNKXEP2864W9/)
Well, let's see here. My Shure e2C headphones are broken (the right driver blew) so I took them to where I bought them originally (East Hamilton Radio, Ontario, Canada)to get them serviced. They will be about 2-3 weeks OH NO!
So i obviously listen to these things every day, and I can't stand my stock iPod headphones. And I don't feel like spending 10 bucks on a cheap in ear set. So I went to Princess Auto (also in Hamilton) and picked up some jackhammer earphones for 3.99. The original jackhammer headphones work fine, blocking out more noise than e2Cs, but I'd like to make them more dynamic and bass-heavy.
Things you'll need.
NO TOOLS! YAY!
--iPod phones, or any other mid quality earbuds
--standard over the head headphones, (airline phones are great)
*make sure they are the variety with a wire going in to each speaker*
--3.5 mm audio splitter
--Your portable audio device (eg. iPod)
Step 1: Make Some New Headphones!
Let's just start off slow with laying your parts out.
View the notes for each part.
Step 2: Put the Lamo Headphones Into the Jackhammer Cans
Just remove the foam insert and place the speaker that was removed from the headphones in the can. Then place the foam back over top. If they rattle around, try adding some more foam behind to firm things up.
Step 3: The Wiring Part
Put the audio splitter in to your 3.5 mm jack on your iPod. Then insert both the ipod chord, and the jackhammer chord.
Step 4: Finish Up
Put on your iPod headphones like normal...
Then put your jackhammer cans on overtop...
Twist the two chords together to make a nifty black and white chord.
Put on something good and relax. You now have bass-heavy noise canceling headphones to use until your shures get fixed! WOO!
