Hi there
 
I carry my headphones in my pockets all the time wrapped around my iPod (can't help this) ... and the ear pads keep falling off.  Starting to spend a lot of money on replacements.  
 
Has anyone got any solutions to this ?  Has anyone tried supergluing them on ?  Or are there models where the ear pads are extremely difficult to remove ?

I had some old sony earphones without earpads which were great, but they aren't made anymore.  On the side with the speaker these little earphones had a sort of lump which would go into the ear canal and made them very stable in the ear, wouldn't fall out.  But they don't seem to be made anymore, The only earphones Sony do now (without ear pads) have a flat side with the speakers, without that lump in them.  Here is a picture of them -they are now discontinued- :

Sony MDR 12

Well I guess what I am looking for is either a still-available replacement / similar item like the MDR 12.
 
Or a way to glue the ear pads on.
 
 
Can anyone suggest something ?
 
thanks

Also not sure if superglue would work well for ear pads which is a rubber to plastic join.  My only thoughts were that I saw a new type of superglue which was more of a gel and that that might work.
