Turn A Pair Of $US30 Headphones Into A $US300 Pair

Turn A Pair Of $US30 Headphones Into A $US300 Pair

If you want high-quality music, but don’t feel like shelling out hundreds of dollars for a decent pair of headphones, blogger Stacy D shows us how to turn a cheap pair of knock-offs into a legit set of audiophile headphones.

We’ve shown you lots of little tricks that improve your headphones, but if you’d really like to get your DIY on, you can mod a cheap pair of headphones into a set of high quality, orthodynamic headphones yourself. It takes a bit of heavy-duty machinery (like a Dremel), but other than those requirements, it doesn’t look that difficult — it mainly consists of buying a higher quality set of drivers and replacing the crappy set’s. Then, you just need some extra insulation to keep it all in place, put the headphones back together (you’ll probably have to do a bit of sanding and painting too), and you’ve got yourself a high-end pair of headphones for less than $US100 total cost.
