    Hey everyone,
    Just thought I would share with you all my latest hack job. I wanted to make a pair of headphones for the Treo that met three requirements.
    1. Had to be backphones (no ear buds!)
    2. Retractable, i'm hooked after i got my retractable usb sync cable
    3. Had to have Treo head phone jack.

    I'm not the handiest guy to ever solder so I took a few shortcuts. Instead of buying a 2.5mm jack from Radio shack and soldering wires to that I got a headset that worked in the Treo and cut it up (got my jack now!). I then went to thenerdz.net and got two ZipLinq 3.5mm retractable earbuds knowing I was going to cut them up, and last but not least I got a pair of back-phones from Radioshack.

    I had all my parts, played around with the wire connections (got it wrong a few times....), added some heat shrink tubing and this is what I got. They work great! only thing I am missing is a vol control on the headphones... Let me know what you think!

    Well I didn't have $40 lying around for them, I had an old set of headphones, exstra headset, and some time. Besides there is some satisfaction to doing it yourself.

    My next project is going to be turning my OEM Treo USB cable into a sync and charge cable...
