Making earmuffs from velvet ring cases??

Hey, I'm working on earmuffs/headphones for an Obito cosplay, and I can't find a website that has similar headphones to attach to my goggles, so I'm hoping I can make 'headphones' or whatever they are from velvet ring boxes. What do you guys think? Possible to make? any easier methods?

Here's a reference.

Your link is bad.

I'm all for using whatever you find that is the right size & shape. The key to earphones is they are essentially hollow because your ears stick out off the sides of your head (well, not you specifically like Prince Charles or anything, just human ears in general).
So, your prop making needs to incorporate space for your ears.
Also, if you fully cover your ears like headphones do, you will be reducing what you hear, how much depends on the materials used.

You might want to glue a little craft-foam around the edge of the box for comfort. If you find that it seriously affects your hearing, consider drilling some holes into the surface of the box.
