Bought Grado SR-60i's on eBay; One earphone fell off

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

So I just bought a pair of Grado SR-60i's off eBay. They arrived yesterday, and I wore them for about six hours. As I took them off, one earphone just fell off. I can push it back on, and it stays reasonably well, but it often falls off when I take them off. Here's a picture:

The headband has a hole in it, but I can't tell if there's some broken piece inside the earphone, or if it was just glued.

 

A couple questions:

 

1. If it was just glued on, what glue should I use to glue it back?

 

2. I would be totally happy to actually mod them, and put on a new headband with more padding. Any advice/guides for such a mod?

 

3. If there's a piece missing, I should just return them right? Gluing them would not be a good idea, I assume. Fortunately I have 14 days to do so; I just have to pay return shipping.

 

Thanks for any advice, sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

 

EDIT: I just used a lot more pressure to push it in and finally heard a "snap"; now it seems fine. Sorry about the thread!

Not to worry - this is actually relatively 'normal' for Grado headbands.

There isn't any real 'snap' function for that - you've probably just dug it deeper into whatever glue is still in there.

The only way to mod Grado headbands is to pull out the headband breaking the glue seal inside - which is what happened to your headband.

 

If you're interested in mods, have a look here:

The quickest way to search through the thread is to just open up images on the top right by clicking on "view all", then just scroll down.
