Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Labotimizing Your Headphones...
Essentially, the process allows your headphone elements (the heaphone "speakers") to vent air to make it give a deeper sound when it's at work.
First, use whatever you need to open up you headphone casings so you get access to the element.
The screws for this pair was under the ear cushions.
Step 2: Removing Paper Cover
If you see in the picture, you notice that the back of the elements have this black tape like substance going around the edges. Under this layer of tape, there are holes which are going to be our air vents soon.
Get a flat head screw driver and just start scraping away at the paper/tape like material. YOu might need to put some strength into it, but remember not to damage the elements.
IMPORTANT!!! the tape will not be removed from the holes, but do NOT try to remove them quite yet, you dont it to fall into the element cause you cant get it out then.
Step 3: Now We Puncture the Holes...
Get a very small precision screwdriver (preferably flat head) and we will puncture the holes now. DO SO VERY LIGHTLY, because we do not want to damage the element inside. As you open up the holes, attempt to scopp the tape OUTWARDS so you dont get them into the hole.
After that, just blow away all the paper thingy residue and reseal the headphones. YOU ARE DONE AND ENJOY IMPROVED YOUR OOOMPHA DA OOMPHING!
