Heres a simple trick that I've been using to keep the silicone earbud tips on my earbuds and not on the floor of the subway, sidewalk, or whenever else they might want to fall off. If you have these type of earbuds you know what I'm talking about- you pull the earbuds out of your pocket and the tips fall off. Hopefully you noticed, but if you not you're stuck moving up to the larger size tips that were supplied with the earbuds or buying new ones. With this simple tip you'll prevent that from happing with a few minutes of your time a couple dabs of super glue!
Step 1: How to Do It
- Take off the tips of the earbud
- Place a small dab of superglue on the rim of the earbud where the tip sits (In this case I am demonstrating with rubber cement which I think will work equally well). Be careful not to get any glue down the channel to the driver.
- Quickly put the tip back on. It should slide into the right position due to the ribbed edge of the earbud which normally is the only part which holds the earbud on.
- Bask in the glory of your invincible earbuds
