This Instructable outlines my project of retrofitting earmuffs/hearing protection with Bluetooth headphones. This project was undertaken with several objectives in mind.
Integrate a stereo, Bluetooth headset into hearing protection
Keep hearing protection as original as possible
Make headset more comfortable
Allow multi-function button to be discreetly placed on exterior for easy access to Play/Pause, Pair, and Power.
This wasn’t the easiest or cheapest build I’ve ever done and certainly could have been done any number of ways. This isn’t a permanent install and will eventually need new parts due to wear and tear. Nevertheless, I’m extremely satisfied with my finished product and its functionality, and I truly welcome your comments, criticisms, and suggestions.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
