Headphone ear pads have a tendency to slip, slide and fall off. Gluing headphone pads is a wise way to keep the pads safe and permanently secure. Adhesives are also beneficial for repairing pads. Permanently adhering and/or fixing ear pads is less expensive than buying replacements. Take your time when repairing the pads to ensure that the first time you apply glue is the only time you need to do it.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Unclasp the foam or leather pad covering from each headphone. Slice the foam (from the base of the foam) from the hard side of the headphone if it is partially secured by other means.

  2. 2

    Spray foam, pressure sensitive adhesive, such as ClearCo 444 Adhesive, to the underside of each headphone pad. Reattach each pad to the headphone immediately. Press down firmly around the rim of each pad and hold for 10 seconds to secure the bond.

  3. 3

    Dip a small brush into a nontoxic leather adhesive solution, such as Quick 20, to fix small rips and tears in the leather padding. Squeeze the torn section of material together and swipe the adhesive over the tear. Apply at least one thick layer over the entire surface of the tear. Hold for 60 seconds to ensure a dry and secure bond.

  4. 4

    Dunk one end of a clean, soft cloth into warm water. Using small circular motions, gently rub away excess adhesive residue from any other area on the padding.
