    This couldn't have come at a better time... I just picked up a Gillette Razor kit that came with free in ear head phones... first off, they are white and then second, they come packaged in a plastic round wind up case for the headphones...

    I'm going to buy a soldering iron tomorrow so that I switch my ipod headset with the in ear ones that I just got... and they should all match with the white also...

    wonderful... can't wait..

    thanks for the tutorial...

    i might rip out my shure headset ear buds and put them on the apple wire just so i don't have to buy a shure adaptor with the button... I dunno.. just thinking.. $100 is a lot to blow if I screw up my headphones..

    Yah, exactly. Which is why I haven't done it yet.

    Don't try to mod your shures. You need to find a set of headphones similar to the ones shown in the video that have a removable cover that allows access to the back of the speaker without damaging the earpiece, and that isn't possible with any of the shure models... nor the bose or bang & olufsens, or pretty much any high end headphones with molded ear canal inserts.

    The JVCs in the video are good because the plastic cover lifts off cleanly, if you are careful, and can be glued back on once the soldering is done.

    You would thing after paying $600.00 for the phone, they would have some good earphones. That is the only thing I am disappointed about with the iphone.

    It's called "acoustical accuracy."

    As a site owner I feel it is your BOUND duty to purchase three different pairs of the most expensive earbuds you can find and take them all apart for modification. Recording it along the way of course....

    The $99 shure headphones are the ec2


    These are ok headphones , I own the ec3


    and they are very good with great highs and mids but lack the bass. The better deal is going with Westone Um1 that you can get on ebay for about $75.



    The have a higher Frequency response and a better Sensitivity level than Shure's EC2.
    Sensitivity: 105dB SPL/mW shure
    Sensitivity: 114 dB/mW Westone


    But as with smlaux said, none of these headphones are easy to take apart. And to spend a $100 on them and risk screwing them up, I don't have the money to waste.

    The way to do that would be instead of taking anything a part, snip the wires an inch or so down, strip and solder them and close it up with some heat shrink tubing.

    you guys should seriously check out the V-moda headphones.. they are very nice and the bass response is great...

    here's my review...

    I love the fact that they used a cloth type cover on the wire... I have found that this keeps them from getting tangled as easily....

    My roommate has them and they do sound great. They do not have the "clicker" button, which is a deal breaker for me.

    Time to find my soldering iron! :-D

    I just did this and it works great. The only hang up i had was getting the apple ones open. I all but destroyed them in the process.

    These were easily modified. They sound 10 times better than the stock headset, bass is great as well. OH, and they stay in your ear!!! Just remove the gray covers to get to the connections. Be careful with the small round cover as the only have 2 small posts that secure them to the earbuds and break easily.
