If your perfect pair of headphones has finally cracked beyond repair, not all is lost. Blogger Ean Golden has discovered that he could make his headphones live on with a pair of noise-isolating earmuffs.
We've seen lots of hacks like this before, but this one is a bit more involved -- and it produces better sound quality. Instead of turning a crappy pair of headphones into noise-isolating ones, Ean took the drivers out of his old, broken Sony MDR-V700 and built them into a pair of industrial earmuffs from the Ear Plug Superstore. The result? High quality sound with complete and utter isolation from the outside world.
It will take some tools and bravery to get it done, but it isn't the hardest thing in the world. Be prepared for a slightly different sound too, since you're putting the drivers in an entirely new casing. Hit the link to see more.
