Didn't realise things like that exist, it might fix the problem temporarily.
I decided not to send the phones in for warranty, too much hassle and cost as I'd have to send them to the UK from Finland. Came up with an idea to craft a wooden replacement for the plastic craptastic headband that snapped. I went with craptastic because after I disassembled the headband I saw how flimsy it in reality is, no wonder it broke. And the black spine it has embedded into it turned out to be rubber instead of metal what I initially thought it was, as on the cups themselves the band IS metal. Be happy if you have a pair that's not from this stock!
Anyhow, the replacement, I'll try to craft one later this year. I inspected the original part and came to conclusion, that it shouldn't be hard to craft something very similar, but more durable, out of wood. The design itself on the band looks sound, it's just the material that is the letdown.
For now I'm trying a temporary fix bi-component epoxy resin glue, but I doubt that'll last more than few weeks, if even the first try.
