Buying a pair of new AirPods might sound scary as one needs to splurge nearly $160. However, a 15-year-old teen has brilliantly turned Apples wired EarPods into AirPods for just $4.
The teen, a Reddit user, hacked together an old pair of wired Apple headphones and some hot glue into a punk pair of DIY wireless earbuds.
“I started this project roughly two months ago when my friend got a new pair of AirPods for his birthday and I thought to myself, ‘that’s quite a lot of money for something I can make at home,'” Sam Cashbook wrote in a Reddit message, the Vice reported on Saturday.
The teen started watching videos of people making their own AirPods, but mostly found people chopping the wires off of Apple headphones as a joke.
