Sugru Headphone Fix




About: I'm a teen aged geek living in Nova Scotia, Canada. I feel safe giving this information because I live near another Shane Dulong. Normally I'm not very trusting of the internet especially due to the fact I f...

Now I know this isn't very complicated, and I know there is a lot of headphone hacks, but my sample package of sugru came in late and i didn't have many ideas. I decided to do what I would be most likely to do if I had bought it. Keep my stupid headphones size selector thing from slipping.

Now I love these headphones. I listen to a lot of alternative rock (non-conformists FTW!) especially when I'm walking somewhere. The thing is, even on my best headphones (Were $40, got 'em on sale for $10! (please excuse my A.D.D.)) the size selector thing keeps sliding. I decided to permanently fix them to the perfect size. If someone else want to hear it, oh well. The only people I know who like my music anyway have similarly sized heads. My town is full of media zombies.

Step 1: Supplies

This is fairly easy. All you need is sugru and headphones. Plus anything else you can do with the leftover sugru. I used a key and a pencil.

Step 2: Prepare Sugru

It makes it a lot easier and more symmetrical if you use this method. First roll it into a hotdog shape (giggle) and cut it in half.

Step 3: Apply and Smooth

Now that you have two small rubber hotdogs all you have to do is wrap it around the moving part where it adjusts, cut off the extras, and smooth it out with your finger.

Wait for it to dry (overnight depending on how much you used) and viola! You now have headphones personalized for your head!
