Imagine that I, along with my iPod and headphones, were transported to another dimension, and I wanted to play some audio on local speakers. I'm sure that by the time the signal is going into the headphones, there aren't any file format issues or anything of that sort to deal with; it's simply electrical pulses telling the magnet how to vibrate to produce the sound. Could I set this up with simple wire splicing, or would differences in voltage, current, circuit set-up, etc. get in the way? It's worth noting that this is rather spur-of-the-moment, and I know something about electronics, but don't have any testing equipment or specialized tools.

Thanks a bunch!
