Suggestions on fun things to do with broken headphones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, all. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD515's that have been broken forever and just sit in a closet. I snipped off the cable so that it would be out of my way and I was wondering what I could possibly due with these cool looking, absolutely worthless headphones. I've been drawing blanks and I thought I'd hit up the forums and see if you guys could come up with anything creative and fun to do with these. I need a holder for headphones but I couldn't think of any way to use these for that. Oh well. If you all can think of anything fun to do with these let me know!

You don't mention exactly how they are broken. If the drivers are blown then you can use the chassis to build a pair of frankenphones with another set of drivers from a different hp. If the chassis is broken you could use the drivers and put them in a different chassis to see what you get. It is a fun project and you just never know what you end up with.

BTW - if the chassis is intact and you don't think you'll ever use them - I'll take them off your hands.

Meh, I was hoping to make something fun out of them. Even if I fix them, I'll never use them. If all else fails, I'll fix the things and they can sit in the closet some more, but if anyone can come up with some crazy thing to make out of these, I would love to try something fun with them.

I say build walky-talkies into them or a CB radio. You must of course have a short stubby antenna coming out of both sides ala japanes anime or giant long antennas like a cockroach.

If the drivers work: I'd build dual LCD screens onto the front, electronics in the back; and make a pair of portable audio/visual headset. You'd look really dumb with them though.
