Who the hell would carry that about?!

Why wouldnt you use a dual wiper pot? So that way you can control both
channels with one knob and know they both have exactly the same settings.
I guess its because “it’s not available at Radioshack”

TDA2822m would have been a better choice for a headphone amp

Super project! What’s the music used in this video?

LM386 = Not too good choice on this. Noisy as hell. It works if you need
loud, but not if you need clear with loud.

too many resistors

Is there a way to use One pot to change the bass instead of having to match
up two?

Lol, I like how he’s adding bass boost to one of the best pairs of
headphones out there (Sony MDR-7506′s) that do a decent job anyway :P

I like the effort put into making the graphics in the video very

I’ve never used one of those, but I DID take a capacitor out of a stereo
system and touched it to my tongue. It was the size of my fist at the time,
and it tasted like blue. It was possibly the 6th dumbest thing I have ever
done with electronics.

What about the usage of other batteries? Also I’d like to see a video for
the mint tin being used as a solar charger for multiple devices. Thank you.

Wow…a project without the overkill of an Arduino! I can actually give
this video a like!
