    My dad's iPhone headphones broke, so he is giving it to me. He was riding his bike and then one side got caught in the gear. The other side is still attached though! The side with the mic

    . So I was wondering if there are any things I can do with the headphones. Maybe like a speaker or something.

    Not trying to be rude or anything, but I'm not quite sure what you mean....turn you headphones into a speaker? What?

    You can't really do anything with them now.. except use them as one-ear headphones with a mic.

    :S

    lol sorry, I saw one project a while ago where it turned normal iPhone headphones into speakers (not very loud ones mind you).

    The only thing I see you could be doing, is buy the same model headphones/Apple ones. Then plugging them both into a splitter for the mic. But what's the point if you already bought a new pair?
