Introduction: Turn Your Old Bluetooth Headphone Into Sound Adapter for Every Speaker

So, I had a Nokia BH-503 bluetooth headphones, after a skateboard accident it was broken I've tried to make it together with glue but didn't work, so I've came up with this project. I've just disassembled it and connected a female audio jack, now I can connect it to any speaker, or headphones. If you have a notebook with bluetooth or mobile phone you can freely navigate in your room while your music on the speakers.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Disassembling

There are 5 screw 2 for holding body 3 for the speaker part, since you are not going to use it again, you can just rip off the sponge and you'll reach to 3 screws.

Step 2: Soldering

Before soldering I've used crocodile cables to find out which cable belongs to which audio channel.
For audio cable, you can just cut a audio extender cable.

Soldering wasn't easy for an amateur like me. First, burn thin cables carefully with a lighter so it will remove the protector part over the headphone cables then you are ready to solder.

Step 3: Make It Together!

Well the last part is only depends on you. I just simply glued via hot slicone left cover to right cover to make it looks nice. Also for avoiding and troubles and for making it durable, cables also sliconed. There was enough space to put battery inside the shell but sometimes battery can be heated up, so I think it is better to leaving it outside!

Voila! Your new bluetooth audio receiver ready to work with all kind of speakers!

    Problem, The bluetooth headphones are STEREO meaning if you have music that pulls left right audio you can only hear half. with newer HD music it does that more than you think. your meathod takes away that second side... i just figured this out myself =x using an old pair of insignia headphones.

    So if you have 4 audio outputs do you just put them to the jack?


    Both Left ---------------------Left-----------------------------------
    Both Right ---------------------Right-----------------------/

    Both ---------------------Ground-------------------------/

    Will this work?, both left and right audio will be pushed to these ports no?

    I am not sure did I really get what do you mean but, to hear a sound from a speaker, you need a pair of cables. One is for signals, the other one is ground which is really it is goes to ground.

    For stereo audio just 3 cables enough you don't need a 4th one. All systems are using this.

    If you mention 2+1 audio, that case is different, that "+1" gives you de deep sound which is bass'es.

    Not entirely true, amplifiers may be designed to have isolated grounding, therefor speakers need 4 wires, more common in bridging amps, and sharing grounds in a 3 wire system will fry an amp.

    yes of course just buy a female-stereo+mic audio jack, and solder cables.
