    Defyant Modded "Tail" Lights!
    This is my stand :) built for 2 headsets with a winged keel theme to it.

    I wanted some thing with a hot swap jack and a light as i do a bit of late night music listening and gaming.

    All made from scraps with a few bits from jaycar powered from usb.

    The base is a scrap piece used as it just edged for looks and the middle is the same for the center clear piece.

    a bit of dremel work is done to insert the earphone jack which is connected to a 3mtr diy ext cable to the pc out.

    ive used to cat5 cable for the ext.

    A 5mm blue cree is wired to a resistor to knoclk off 2 v and sent wired to a usb male plug.

    This gives me a jack i can use to swap between my gaming cans and music can that's lit for late nights.

    Using cat5 gives me plenty of wires for power and audio.

    The cat5 is sleeved with connectors added and heat shrinked.

    Weldon perspex glue is used to hold it all together recently adding a screw each shit to help.

    No shielding on the audio lines?

    looks great, a coat of paint would top it off
