The purpose of this instructable is to eliminate the headphone wire between my iPhone and headphones. The wire would constantly snag on things while at work and be ripped out from the headphones(3.5mm jack on the headphones). The “under the shirt” method worked however it was annoying at times and could still be caught on things.

Materials Used:
1.  A pair of your favorite headphones* – I used my Studio Beats by Dr. Dre
*if your headphones do not have a 3.5mm jack on them, the headphone cord can be shortened permanently or just wrapped around the headband!

2. Stereo Bluetooth Headset

3. Short 3.5mm Stereo patch cable
I had one lying around the house that i purchased from Radio Shack ages ago.

4. A few Velcro cable ties

Now comes the fun part!
       ASSEMBLY!

Step 1: Attach Bluetooth with Velcro straps

Velcro straps were cut to fit around the band.
I put them on tight with fuzzy velcro side down – or – the side that contacts the headphone bandA shorter patch cable would be ideal but this works just fine.I called my brother to test sound quality and he said that he could hear me fine, even with the location of the mic
