    Very nice... Now if I could only figure out how to get my Koss headphones apart?

    reeko, you are crazy as hell! ( Is that profanity on this site? ) That was the first thing I thought of after I watched the tut video. I have some studio headphones I was thinking about doing that with. I would feel funny wearing them and walking around having a conversation with them though. Those aren't too big for you???
    I would have my URL here so you could hear our music but apparently that's sig spam. WTF?

    for listening to music its fine, its a bit weird to start, only way to compare it is like when you first wear your new sunglasses or first get a new haircut, but after a while you forget. ive worn them walking round the centre of london, its cool.

    as for being on the phone, i lift one of them up above my ear so i can hear myself, otherwise i think im shouting, although i don't know because i cant really hear myself.

    for quality, these kick any little ear buds ***.

    Would this soldering iron be sufficient to complete this mod? I don't know much about wiring, but I can afford to burn out a few Marshmellows to get this trick to work. Also, is using the iron as easy as it is in the video? It looks like the guy barely touched the wires.

    i was the original autobot! seen a few people with that now....

    honestly, this isnt a hard mod. the hardest bit of the whole thing is taking your new headphones apart without ruining them.

    Well in my defense, I liked Transformers before the new movie. I also liked Iron Man too. I'm waiting for a Green Lantern movie....
    And did you have to go change your sig? :]

    Back on topic:
    Could someone describe how exactly soldering works? I know it melts the metal, but how do I know when or where to put the iron to make this happen?

    The play/pause button and mic work fine for me... I couldn't open my sony earbuds however so I did the old fashion wire splicing method. doesn't look as perfect as the way the tutorial shows but it still looks pretty good and works GREAT.

    Anyone? I kinda need to do this before Saturday... If no one replies I'll let you all know how it went...

    I do have a butane powered soldering iron now though. My dad had one stashed away.
