Intro: How to Make a Headset for Online Gaming or Instant Messaging
How to make a headset for online gaming or instant messaging. This is my first instructable and I really worked hard on this so please no flames ;)
Step 1: Gather Materials
Materials needed for this project:
Old Walkman Style Headphones
Ipod Like Earbuds
A BIC Pen
Step 2: Gut It Out
Gut out the BIC pen and discard or set aside the insides just keep the tube looking part. Then tape the tube to the Walkman Headphones and make sure the end of the tube is close to your mouth if it is not do whatever you need to to get it there.
Step 3: Find the Right Earbud
Find the right earbud to be used for the microphone by plugging it into the microphone port on your computer and opening sound recorder and blowing into both of them.
Step 4: Attach It!
If the jack of the earbuds will fit through the hole of the pen put it through if not just tape the earbud that you just found to the pen in a spiral fashion.
Step 5: Customize
You can now use the headset if you would wish but you could also customize it to look like your own if you happen to do this post a picture of what it looks like! Ill have to warn you. If you do not talk loud sometimes the microphone/headphone will not pick up whatever you just said and it will just be really quiet. If you have the money I highly suggest to go buy one from walmart or whatever.
