DIY Increased Bass Tips for Earbud




This is my first instruction so it would be nice if you gave me some feedback to improve my future topics.

Those earbud never fit in my ear but now i finally found a solution for it. No need sugru, everything you need is a cheap pen.

    I made an account just so i could say thank you! These are amazing! I tried making the foam ones and that wasnt happening lol. These work so perfect i cant belive it! Thanks again!


    Great idea but I have to ask whether the danger to your ear has been taken into consideration.
    As the rubber is not sealed onto the earphones they may may fall off and become lodged in the ear canal, necessitating a trip to hospital and potential surgery to remove it.

    Ask the kid that got a tooth firmly jammed down his ear.

    That'd be me. Silly stuff happens all the time.

    Hearing the doctor say "if I can't extract it with these tweezers it will have to be operated on" put the fear of God in me.

    Thanks for your opinion ^^

    As I said in the upper comment, you could use some glue to stick your rubbers on your earbud, or you could do like this and I guarantee it won't never fall out :D

    I must try this - nice idea! I really hate the ear buds that are too wide and don't fit well. This hack has lots of potential to make custom fit earbuds. Thanks!

    And I think that a bit of adhesive (hot melt glue or other appropriate adhesive) can address the valid concerns of the rubber fitment coming off and lodging in the ear.

    thanks for your feedback.

    U could use some adhersive if your rubbers can't stick on your earbuds. In my case, it stick on my Earpod for several days without any glue and I use my Earpod a lot ^^
