Convert Your Headphones To Bluetooth Headphones

Turn your headphones into bluetooth headphones with Bluetooth Box. via instructables

I love what my headphones, but a few weeks ago, my friend bought a new bluetooth headset, I intend to switch to bluetooth headphones. But I do not want to throw away the love of my headphones, so I got the idea make a small box, which I can turn my headphones into a Bluetooth headset.
This project shows how to convert all wired headphones or speakers to the headset or bluetooth wireless speakers with the ability to work at least 6 hours on full charge and being able to recharge without any complications.. It is open hardware project: BluetoothBox

Before we get started we are going to need a little bit of motivation, take a look at these pictures and realize what you will be making.

This project could be complete by anyone, just a little electronic skills, you can make yourself a unique BluetoothBox. It only takes 3 days to complete the design and to share this project to you, and I hope this project can help you a lot.

I love bluetooth, short range hi-tech radio that can transmit all sorts of data. Bluetooth headsets are AWESOME because you can listen to music, game, or call your friends with no cord hanging around. You can connect this box to any bluetooth enabled device such as a tablet, computer, or almost any phone. There is NO DONGLE NECESSARY, and it only costs about 15$.

Here is what you need to make your BlutoothBox:

Tools:

Laser cut machine (Better that you should send the file to a laser shop for laser cutting machine). If you have a 3D printer, it will not have any big problems anymore. You can easily design a case for themselves at your disposal without calculating thickness of acrylic sheets. Unfortunately I do not have a 3D printer, it will come in the future :))
