Create the perfect fit for your earbuds
Reduce background noise and deliver more bass and treble
As the shape of the buds are custom, they are also much less likely to fall out, great for exercising
His idea is simple, by putting sugru in the silicone sleeves supplied with your earbuds, you can create a perfect fit without putting sugru in your ears. This is a very clean and simple method to modify your audio kit with really impressive results.
Sugru is the perfect material for this because:
- It moulds and forms easily
- It bonds to the silicone sleeve
- It cures with a soft, flexible feel
If you need to stock up, sugru is available from www.sugru.com
Let's get started!
Step 1: What you need
Maybe line up some other projects to do at the same time, so no sugru goes to waste! If you're stuck for ideas, check out other peoples hacks at www.sugru.com/gallery.
If you want your hack to blend in with your earbuds, you can use black. I've personally gone for yellow, to compliment the other colours.
Step 2: Getting the bud ready
You don't actually have to remove them and in fact it's easier to just leave them on.
Make sure the insides of your buds are clean by giving them a quick wipe.
