    honestly, this is horrible. Really? Putting in-ear headphones inside over-ear ones? The diameter of the transducer from the in-ear to over-ear is ridiculous. I NEVER post comments. But i feel compelled to tell you this.

    That's a bit unfair. Obiously, the person who made this had some broken headphones, made this, and wanted to share it in case people wanted to make it, so if you don't like the idea, it's fine, but you don't have to leave a comment on how it's a 'rubbish idea'.
