Audio Technica ATH-700 I need Repair Suggestions, Broken ear piece Pic Included

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So, I made a post awhile back about how i accidentally sat on my headphones and broke 1 side of the earpiece holder. I never got around to making a permanent repair and the damage has now spread. I'm looking for suggestions on how I may go about repairing this piece.

 

What I would like to do is make a mold of that one piece and make a new one out of cast iron or something but since I don't have access to a material that durable through molding I'm not sure what I can do. Help?IMG_0143.JPG

This is my first post ever, so forgive my newbie ways... but have you considered J-B weld? The stuff is tough as nails and will hold forever. You can file it down once it hardens (you can "mold" it while soft). Just be careful with it... it is a strong epoxy after all.

It's pretty inexpensive, too. It's available at any self-respecting hardware store.

 

And when cured the finish isn't too bad, a nice flat gray. Which, I'm sure you could paint, if you felt so inclined.

 

Really, it's great stuff and I'm surprised it's not more popular...
