If it did it on the first ring I wouldn't miss a call. That's another plus.

Tool_maker,

 I like that idea....have a mic that picks up voices and such and mutes the volume. It would come in handy when the phone rings! Well, since I don't listen to headphones much...it would be nice to plug in the sound to a device and when the phone rings it mutes it. Just a thought for the gadget guys.

 I agree, this is really cool and the hoodie idea is a real keeper.  I have an EE friend working for TVA who spends a great deal of time inspecting power stations.  He would really appreciate this concept--warmth plus "tunes".  Great post.

 Ordinarily I am not critical of any of these gadgets, but this appears to be way more work than required to achieve the same effect. What would be great is headphone that turn themselves of when someone wants to talk to the wearer. I do not know when it became the rule that you had to have some noise in one's ears 24/7. Okay I usually have the radio or pandora playing when I work, but I am in an office by myself and do turn them off when people come in.

Come up with head phone that shock the youthful wearer when they use them to igmore parents and you got a winner.

That's a very nice project for someone who wants to DIY...

I hacked up an old headset way back around 1970. The speakers were then mounted in a piece of medium hard foam which was then in turn wedged inside the fluff of my pillow. The rest of the family stopped telling me to turn down/off my music at night after that.

If I had been able to toss and turn with the headphones on I would have never had the personal satisfaction of that little project.

I also hacked the phonograph so that it would play the stack of LPs as usual but the last one would keep repeating until I shut it off. Good reason to save my fav for last...

I agree. I mean if you use earbuds they go in your ears anyway, so you could easily wear muffs over them.

nice idea.. looks decent too (especially like the idea of a hoodie mod)

did similar headphone hacking up in the 1980's while in the Army.  mounted the speakers in my kevlar, ran the cord under my web gear and put my Walkman in my ammo pouch (other pouch held spare batteries/casettes)..helped keep me awake on late night guard duty.  Also had the added benifet of being almost invisible to any roving officers.  :)

Sylvie,

It's "Mr." Spock, if you are making a reference to the Star Trek character, not "Dr." Spock.  Dr. Spock was a pediatrician who gave child-care advice.

As one of your other readers pointed out, furry ear-muff headsets are not a new idea.  It would be easier to simply cover a pair of headphones, rather than disassemble them and modify them.  Is it too easy?
