This could easily be classified as the craziest idea I've ever had. But I got an mp3 player for my birthday (6 months ago), and I've hardly every used it because I hate hate hate cords hanging around my neck. (not to mention those earbud things don't fit at all...)
Thus...the 'Hat-phones' were born.http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a294/electricblue22/mp3%20hat/005.jpghttp://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a294/electricblue22/mp3%20hat/006.jpg
You can kinda see the mp3 player poking out of the hidden pocket in the lining...http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a294/electricblue22/mp3%20hat/007.jpg
A better picture of the attached headphones cord and the secret pocket.http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a294/electricblue22/mp3%20hat/003.jpghttp://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a294/electricblue22/mp3%20hat/004.jpg
The top of the hat, the color's a little wonky...it's hard to take pictures of the top of your head!
...plus a close-up of the coolest button ever (25 cents for a pack of 5 of these at the thrift store)
(I think this could be rather useful for those long lecture-type classes...as long as I keep it soft enough so I can still hear the teacher.)
I should probably clarify that the headphones were stitched onto a piece of fleece, and stitched to the inside of the band so they sit right over my ears...I noticed no decrease in sound quality, and when I wore it to town, nobody around seemed to hear anything...so it's all good.
I wish I had some pictures of the inside wiring and such...but I was so caught up in my inspired streak that I totally forgot...sorry guys
...if perchance one of my friends wants one, I'll take some process pictures...
Thanks for looking anyway!
