headphones for a guitar?

About five minutes ago one of my friends brother told me my friend was annoying him by playing his electric guitar at 7:30PM as loud as he can so it got me to thinking, to make headphones that work on a guitar it couldn't be as simple a swapping the jack right? if i made the cassete player amp instructable and just plugged normal headphones into that, the headphones would work so only the guitar player could hear it right? my music teacher told me that plugging headphones into an amp was a bad idea for some reason so im just using that to try and make headphones for an amp another way

Headphone Question

How are headphones/earbuds powered? Is power sent through the audio port? If so, how many volts go through? This question how always wondered me. Because earbuds are basically mini speakers and speakers require power, so shouldn't headphones need at least a little power?

Guitar Headphones

Im in need of help. My friend has a bass guitar but no amp. And instead of buying one he asked me to figure out a way to let him just plug in his headphones. After glancing around at all the instructables for portable guitar amps I hadnt seen one for just plugging in headphones. SO, I'm asking here in hopes of someone else knowing where an instructable is for this, because I can't find one.

Wireless Headphones

Does anybody know if I can get wireless headphones with multiple headphones receiving a signal at the same time from one transmitter? I DID google it, but I only got one useful source, and I figured you... smart... people (cough) would give me some clearer and more focused info

Audio - headphones

My daughter runs a Pre-school and uses a small cd stereo setup. The output is a pair of mono jacks (R/L) for speakers. I am looking to build a distribution box for up to 6 headphones. Thinking of one input (from the speaker jacks using a 2 to 1 plug) The headphones are mono 1/4 so those jacks are readily available. I do not know what the output is of the stereo system is but I doubt it is much over 5 watts (if that). Will I need some sort of amplifier? any thoughts on switches/switching jacks if not all are being used. Thanks for listening. guitar 52

Headphone showdown

I'm currently in a dilemma over the next pair of headphones I'm buying. Does anyone have anything bad to say about certain ones? (Or better yet good things). The three I've narrowed down to are: - Solo HD's  from beats     - These are a tad more expensive, but I personally like them and have heard great things.     - Detachable cord     - Great sound     - Most expensive (119USD) - Skullcandy Lowriders    - I've gotten mixed reviews here, some say that they are crap yet I personally know someone who had a pair of these for 3 years and they were still in one piece.   - A little uncomfortable, but durable.   - Decent sound   - Also the cheapest (40USD) - Ifrogz Vertex    - I have a pair of these which are broken, the cord is a tad cheap but the quality is fairly good otherwise.    - Decent sound    - Mid priced (50USD) Thank You - Nerdman

Rewire headphones

I have a sonyericsson handsfree connector that I would like to use on a phone that takes a 3.5 plug. The hands free is nice because there is a 3.5 female jack where the mic is so that I can use the earphones of my choice yet still be able to use the mic. I snipped off the sony ericsson connector and found 5 'threads': 2 'threads' seem like actual cotton threads (one red and one blue), 2 seem like very thin sheathed copper wire, and one seems like unsheathed copper wires. I have a 3.5 male plug that I would like to connect them to but do not know how. I've held the 2 sheathed wires stripped and unsheathed copper wires to the plug while its been plugged in but hear nothing. Is it possible to connect up these wires to the jack so that it will work? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Headphones Speakers hack

I've been thinking about this for quite a while now. Since I can remember, I always had problems when it comes to these, after a while, I always end up with the same problem, my speakers not working properly, its always the same, one speaker works fine, the other not so much, same happens with headphones, one side just stops working, and I have to jiggle with the jack to make it work. Of course after I end up buying a new set of speakers/headphones and that's it. I figured this happens because I plug in and out the heapdhones too many times, I use the speakers during the day, but at night I can't be loud so I swith to heapdhones, well, at least, this is my guess about the problem. This is what I was thinking about. I would need a way to have both heapdhones and speakers plugged in at the same time, and be able to switch between them at my please (by software or hardware). However I never even heard of an on off switch or anything like that. Does anyone have any kind of idea of how I could do this?

Wireless headphone with Microphone

Can anybody tell me how to make a wireless headphone and microphone. Both microphone and headphones should be wireless. I found that one can buy a wireless headphone or a wireless microphone, but not a combination of both. Why I need it. I make long phone calls, during which I need to walk around. If I use a cordless phone, I have to keep holding the receiver with one hand all the time. If I use a speakerphone, everybody around listens to the conversation. Therefore I need one wireless headphone with mic.

Old headphones made into speakers

Hey guys. If you want to cur the crap skip to the third paragraph. So I found this speaker in a voice recorded message greetings card thing and it's pretty loud for it's size, so I decided to put it in place of a headphone on my old iPod headphones. I Took apart the right bud and soldered the + - wires to the speaker, and it worked first time. My problem is now that some songs have say guitar coming through the right speaker and bass through the left. I decided to try and mount the speaker below the split. The thing is, I'm not sure which are the + and - wires. I know that speakers work by changing between + and - to make the diaphragm move, but when I mounted the speaker where the ear bud was, it was easy as there were 2 wires. Below the split there are 4. So my question is. Does it matter what 2 wires I pair together to solder at one port? The colours are Blue, Red, Green, and Red/Green intwined.

Audio Spectrum Analyzer Headphones

Hi, I was wanting to try to make some custom headphones. The headphones themselves wouldn't really be anything special but what is on the sides is what i'm wanting. On the sides I was wanting LEDs in a circular fashion working as a spectrum analyzers to what ever music I play. A visual idea of what i'm wanting is the GIF below, the way the analyzer is working in the background is how id want it on the headphones except in the opposite direction where the bars go outward.I also would like to have it to where it had a switch where i could turn the analyzer off but still listen to music without it running. I don't care on how it works i just want it to not be too expensive and i want it to where it could look a little professional and clean

Broken Headphones Oh Noes

Hey, what's up everyone, I'm new.  Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules. So I'm sure you've gotten tons of these already, but, I have a pair of broken earphones.  Two pairs actually.  On both, the right side is broken (as in, no sound). I took them apart and found that on one of them the coating of the wire seems to have melted or something (there was sticky black stuff all over the inside), and on the other the diaphragm thingy is detached. So at first I thought there were frayed wires somewhere, but the electromagnets on both still work (I tested them with a piece of metal, the attraction was still really strong), so I figured that there must be something wrong with the diaphragm (what are those things called?  the plastic cone thingies?). My question is:  Is there a way to test the diaphragm thing, and if that's the problem, is it fixable? Thanks very much in advance.
