    Ouch. I would not have tried this on 100 bose headphones. I did the same as the video and all works well. However it is really hard to get the earphone apart. He must have already did it before he shot the video. I used a little knife to get it started..

    While I thought of modding my earbuds as well, why not get these:

    They are only 30 bucks and have the built in clicker/mic that functions. I haven't bought them yet, but I think for the $$$ it's the best deal...

    I did this mod the day the video hit the net and love my JVCs. I especially like how using the Apple cord gives me FULL functionality with the phone and iPod. All I lose is the earache the stock earbuds offered after 90 seconds of use!

    If you're too squeamish to do it yourself, these guys are modding up Etys or just offering to do the soldering for you.

    That's a really good tutorial. Might break apart a spare pair of Etymotic ER4 that I have in case my motocycle ER4's crap out.

    why would you need to break the ER4 apart? just get a set of spare ER4 wires, clip, solder and shrinkwrap... no need to risk braeking such a nice pair of earphones

    He's right. You need a steady hand and tiny soldering iron to take the Etys apart. I ruined my old pair of ER-6s doing just that.

    basically its the etymotic er-6i buds on the apple iphone wire

    thats nice, the white ones that came with my iphone are terrible, sound quality is just average, and try running with them. Or laying on your bed and you turn to the side and one falls out.

    I bought a pair of the overpriced nike metallic ones with part of my $100 credit. That being because the jack on the iphone was too small for the other nice pair of sport headphones I had (just because the jack was L-shaped and again, would slip out after impact from movement.) But, that plus the sole arm-band I could find at the apple store and I was a happy camper.

    -oddly, i had different experiences with threading each ear bud with the iphone cord. for some reason, the hole on the right bud piece wasn't large enough to fit the cord, so i decided to trim the casing off rather than cram it. when i did this, i realized that there were some extra wires (other than the two to solder) that i had no idea what to do with because i don't really know much. so i just wrapped them all around and threaded them through anyway. seemed to work in the long run with no loss of sound quality or functionality. strangely, though, i could thread the cord through the left bud without any problems or mods.

    but yeah, these work.

    excellent tutorial.

    very nice. i've found sony ericssoon buds to be of very good quality. excellent base and hits the high notes perfectly. Only problem i had with them was either losing the rubber pieces, or them falling out while working out.

    What are the best headphones to mod for working out/running purposes. nothing more annoying while moving then to have your music dangle by ur neck
