Ever had a pair of headpones/earbuds that has a faulty adaptor, or busted speakers?
Today I'm going to show you how to renew broken headphones/earbuds into new usable headphones/earbuds.
(I am going to call them "head/buds" from now on, so follow along)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Multiple pairs of broken head/buds
Heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape.
Lighter (if necessary)
Step 2: Choose Your Head/buds
Find multiple pairs of head/buds... try to find one with good speakers and one with a good adaptor.
If you find them in the street make sure they are clean.
Step 3: Cutting
Cut the head/buds in half (unless you want a longer (or shorter) custom pair of head/buds).
If they have one of those control/microphone things, make sure you leave it on (unless of course, you don't want it).
Step 4: Soldering
Solder the wires together.
If you don't know how to solder, you can visit:

or, a more instructables friendly version,
Step 5: Wrapping
You can go all fancy-like and use shrink wrap tubing to cover your exposed wires, or you can just wrap them with electrical tape.
Step 6: Finished!
Now you're finished!
Hope you enjoyed my Instructable!
