Step By Step Process of How to Fix Broken Headphones Plastic

  1. Start by gathering the materials needed and tools that work best for your project such as super glue, clear nail polish (optional), an exacto knife (or something else to cut with) and cotton balls. Prepare all the necessary ingredients ahead of time so that when it’s finally time to start you can focus on the project at hand.
  2. Start by taking off any pieces that are broken and discard them in one place, then set aside what is left to work with for later use.
  3. Take a cotton ball and cover it in super glue right before starting. You may want to have two or three balls of foam on standby so that when they get used up you can replace them without having to stop your progress midway through while waiting for more supplies to arrive.
  4. Once everything has been laid out how you’d like it, go ahead and begin by putting the first layer onto the headphone plastic using an exacto knife or something else sharp but not too dangerous (you don’t want this cutting deep enough into the material as to cut through it).
  5. When you’re done with the first layer, go ahead and put some wood glue on top of that. The idea is to create a protective film over the plastic so that when they are next dropped by accident or bumped into something, this will hopefully prevent any more damage from occurring.
  6. Let everything dry for at least an hour before removing any excess material off the surface using your fingers.
  7. Repeat steps until all the broken parts have been fixed up! Once finished, reattach each piece together by wrapping them in electrical tape (keep adding layers if needed) and then carefully cutting out small wholes where necessary so there are new places to insert headphone jacks back in too. This should be much easier than trying to glue them back in place.
  8. If you can’t find the right colored electrical tape, go ahead and use this as an opportunity to spray paint whatever color(s) that might be preferred instead!
  9. Go back over everything with some clear sealant or varnish (optional but highly recommended). This should help keep any other unwanted materials from getting into the cracks of the plastic when they are next dropped by accident or bumped into something again – it will also give a nice glossy finish on top for those who want more protection against scratches too.
  10. Just make sure to get one layer of material down before adding another so it creates a sturdy barrier between layers.
  11. Repeat until desired thickness is achieved to fill up all gaps where necessary and then allow at least 24 hours to dry before use.
