Hack a Cheap Wireless Handset to Output Via External Speaker

Introduction: Hack a Cheap Wireless Handset to Output Via External Speaker

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any kind of damage done.

A short 10 minute hack to tap into the earpiece output. This cheap handset has no speakerphone capability; hurts my ears like crazy after using it for a while.

I didn't care about impedance or anything, just solder wires to the earpiece connection on the circuit board. I used an old 3.5mm plug and a JST connector to connect the phone to my iPod dock. Volume was a little low so I had to ramp it up a little. Otherwise, it works fine:)

The End.
