Its a cool project but far far too many adjectives. "superb" this "excellent" that, when really its run of the mill stuff any audio enthusiast would expect. It just gets a bit grating.

I mean REALLY??? Shouldn't it be titled; "How to re-purpose $25 wireless earbuds by spending $150 on DIY wireless true stereo speakers using a $3000 CNC machine'" ??? If I may suggest, could u do a similar video with much cheaper materials and less DIY work with same internal electronics from wireless earbuds for us cheap-ass citizens? Great DIY video with GREAT RESULTS (except you lost a lot of high end so get better tweeters or tweak it a bit more). Still, I love your videos dude!

Most of if not all earbud sets will shut off if they are too far apart from each other.. not much wider than the width of an average head. This would obviously severely impede the usefulness of this setup. How did you deal with this?

I'm very surprised you didn't build in a charger. Or at least use metal threaded inserts for the screws on the battery access panel.

Great work Matt!! appreciate your choice of projects you do. I have something in my mind (keeps bugging me). A couple of old Android phones lying around, could they be fit to make an Android tv or simply convert a normal LED TV to an Android

Amazing! You are seriously the man. As others have no doubt suggested, the only improvement that seems to me to be a must-do is figuring out a way to charge them without removing the battery pack… maybe a quick follow up video????

It took me a second to realize that the real magic here in the wiring is that the paired Bluetooth controllers already are divining the L and R channels.

They look fantastic, especially the woodwork, but the sound is kind of meh. A bit too much bass, and thus sounds a bit distorted/muffled. The Bose definitely sound crisper. Would look to package the Bose in those wooden cases! Lol. Oh, yeah, and you really need recharging circuitry in the cases….removing battery packs is not the best approach.

Those Bose speakers actually have better balance and clearer tones. That second song made it really clear how muffled the DIY speakers are. Still impressive though. I would have rather seen how to use the Bluetooth receiver in the headphones in order to make existing wired speakers Bluetooth capable instead.

The speak is beautiful. I agree that at the beginning of the video, it thought it was some sort of premium brand speaker. Well done!

Why not use a lithium ion battery which can be charged through a micro usb/type-C port. Why go for this unscrewing then taking out the battery pack then charging individual batteries..which is a very slow process

What about turning it into a little hub that can send the signal over radio so you can transmit to as many speakers and sub-woofers as you want with a signal receiver for each unit? :D I hope anyone can give me some tips on this! :)
