This is a headphone jack I installed into the volume control for my speakers. I got tired of reaching around to the back of the computer to plug headphones in every time I needed to use my headphones instead of my speakers. Took about 30 minutes. Most of the time was spent removing the headphone jack from an old CD player. Pic 1 is just the wiring, pic 2 is wiring to the jack, pic 3 is once i got the hole drilled and slid the jack into place, and pic 4 is completed project. Hope you all like it.

J, these are creative SBS 5.1 560 speakers. i suppose i could write a how to, and if you'd like it, you can email at Make sure the subject says, "Metku Mods headphone jack how-to". If i see that, then it won't instantly go in the trash:) I'll get started on it right away. I'll make it a notepad file so everyone can read it who has windows.

Hey, dude, this is one very usefull mod! To bad no how-to, though. I'd definitely do it in an eye blink! What's the model of your speakers?

haha, no. This mod took about 30 minutes to do. reaching around to the back took around 30 seconds.:)

Thanks guys! it was a pretty simple mod. the jack for the headphones goes (from tip to wire) left channel, right channel, gnd. so just wire it like that and you're golden!
