My headphones broke last week. The right ear cup fell of last week, and since the left cup is only held on by painter’s tape, I took this as a sign that it’s probably time for a new pair. So I ordered a replacement set.
Trouble is, these are a great pair of headphones. Sennheiser HD 201. Cheap ($20-25 US), but they have a fantastic clean sound (which I need for recording/mixing), comfortable fit, and a really long cable. While they’re broken in form and shape, they still work, and still sound great. Seemed a shame to just throw them out.
While out and about with my wife today, I walked into a dollar store, and walked out with $3 of a solution. A St. Patrick’s Day toy, ping-pong balls, and some metal duct tape, and a half hour of work, and I now have DOOMPHONES! HEADPHONES of DOOM!
Gonna chalk this up as a win.
I’m a serious musician, internet. Seriously.
