Headphones are incredibly ubiquitous. They can range from different sizes to styles, comfort to noise cancelling and now even wireless bluetooth. Here’s an upgrade you won’t find on even the biggest brands. RGB LEDs.
This DIY upgrade uses NeoPixel LED rings and an Adafruit Feather Bluefruit LE module to make slick lighting effects.
With The Adafruit Bluefruit LE connect app for iOS or Android, you can change the colors of the LEDs using a color picker and even trigger dope animations with the tap of a button.
The 3D printed enclosures keep everything together and doesn’t add too much weight or bulk to your pair of headphones.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
