No problem with the inspiration - I get so many great ideas from craftster, that when I have one that's might possibly inspire others, I like to post it!

Those headphones look AWESOME! The variegated yarn adds a nice touch, and now we can rock our headphones together. Tell your mom she is AMAZING - and really do try to learn to crochet yourself - it's a lot of fun, it's relaxing, it's pretty easy, and you can make a lot of cool stuff !

This is an awesome idea. I'm kicking myself in the head for not thinking of something like this months ago - my 'phones have NO foam left, and even the rubber piece that goes behind the ear has now vanished. I need to do this now.

One question, though - does it affect the sound at all? I would think a layer of chunky yarn in single crochet would muffle the sound at least a little bit.

I haven't noticed much of a sound difference; I think that it does muffle the sound a little, and it spreads the sound out more (do you understand what I mean?), which can be a good or bad thing - but I listen to my music so softly that the muffling hasn't been much of an issue (I never turn the volume all the way up, so even if it did lower the sound, I could just turn up the volume)

If you're really worried about affecting the sound, you can do what I was originally going to do, which was cut out circles of fabric and sew elastic around the edge to keep them on the headphones - I imagine if you use lightweight flannel or other fabric it wouldn't affect the sound much.

Sinatra, glad to find someone else who wants to save their headphones from drabness. It's kind of scary how similar our headphones are, though - almost exactly the same color yarn, the same kind of headphones, and they're both photographed on wood. Weird.

I love these. It doubles up as cute ear muffs as well as headphones. Winter coming soon so I'll be making myself these too! Thanks for the inspiration.  Cheesy
