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.
