If you can't fabricate, use JB Weld.  Course, they wouldn't fold after that, but they'd still work, at least as much "work" as can be expected out of Beats.

 

Duct tape?  Make a new trend of it.  Go colorful and represent the country flag.

 

And on a more serious note - Bondo?  Like the two-part putty people use to fix rust spots on cars?  Having used plenty of it myself, no, I don't quite think it'd work, unless "bondo" means something different in the EU...

Please don't bump twice in five minutes. At least wait a couple of hours if you're going to bump excessively.

 

As for your repair... they're basically screwed. The broken part is a hing made out of moulded plastic, which will be incredibly hard to fix whilst still keeping the hinge intact. Either glue it straight with epoxy resin or buy a pair of headphones with better build quality.

But seriously, why not buy a new pair?
