I got a set of ww2 era headphones for Christmas. They where pretty beat-up so I set out to restore them. I did not want them function in the way they originally did, but to use them as the chassis for modern speakers and innards, similar toe the my previous headphone build here.
First, all the parts was disassembled, cleaned, the speaker innards was removed and new leather straps fitted to the head wires.
