What's the best way to fix a broken headphone band?

I have a set of Samsung SBH500 Bluetooth headphones that unfortunately have a snapped headphone band. The band is essentially broken into two pieces, preventing me from using my headphones.

What's the sturdiest method of repairing my headphones? I already tried super glue, which worked for 30 seconds before the headphone band broke again. Check out the picture:

Any help or suggestions you may have will be appreciated!

I used a hair band and a tape to fix that and make it really work. Using another solution or glue will be a temporary solution.

Check this video to fix the broken headphone band in less than $1.

F$(( Samsung. A billion dollar mega conglomerate corporation doesn’t have a measly

Warranty on physical defects. This is how these companies become billion dollar ones. What happened to pleasing the customer or the customers always right? Again the almighty dollar comes front and center. There’s no such thing anymore as a loyal customer. Everyone’s disposable. For every customer lost another 10 join the flock. So 1 measly customer doesn’t mean anything anymore. And the cost to manufacture their products is literally cents on the dollar. A thousand dollar phone costs them maybe $20 to produce. And the end user gets screwed and they suddenly think they’re a loyal customer until something happens and then you figure out the hard way. It’s like getting through to the Gestapo.

I have had two pairs of Panasonic RPHT225, the first ones I had about 6 years ago lasted 3-4 years and the plastic swivel connector part of the arm just snapped off and I binned them. My daughter bought be a second exact same pair for me as she knew Ilike the sound quality and they have just snapped in the same place, so not wanting to scrap a perfectly functioning pair of heads I have just spent a couple of hours cutting a piece of thin sheet steel about 17mm wide x 50mm long x probably 30 guauge and used some pop rivets about 2mm diameter and put in a total of 6 rivets and it feels like it's going to hold really well and not flex like the plastic did. It's the flexing that causes the plastic to weaken and form a plastic hinge and break off.

You can't beat having the right thin spring steel as flexi arms, they don't break. I am not a great fan of the use of plastic, it's horrible in cars, the UV light turns PVC brittle and ABS id not much better. Nylon 66 is much more durable alternative.

Glues and epoxy are ok, but eventually they fail.

looks like a difficult repair. I doubt any sort of glue will work without mechanically reinforcing the break.

could you drill a small hole into either side of the broken part, insert a a short stiff wire of some sort to reinforce, then seal it all in with a couple layers of heat shrink tubing over the original band?

Actually, the best way to repair this is with tape, forget the glue. if you are into designer stuf get designer tape. I use duct tape and a piece of a wire coat hanger that has been cut and curved as needed to repair them, and tape the wire onto the outside of the headphones. LOL I've broken so many pair, I do that first now before I even put them on. I have told all my friends and they have all did this also. It works great!

Excellent! I just repaired mine with this. I curved and wire as needed but also made it look like an S to prevent it from rolling, then duct tape! Works great!!

i know this is an old question but it pops up on google first, so for future breakage, the way i do it is with super glue and tissue paper...just wrap a couple layers of tissue around the break and saturate the paper with super glue. works like the baking soda super glue method, but a lot easier. the paper and glue dries hard as !&&* and it is easy to reinforce or add layers to certain parts. its like instant cement, looks like crap though but hey if it looks stupid but it works it aint stupid

Use ABS cement and acetone to fuse the plastic together, as per this guide. This is the kind of thing autobody guys do all the time. Also, bondo.

I bent metal banding using a vise, carefully wrapped it around the headband, clamped it in the vise, drilled one hole straight through, bolted it which holds it all in place, then drilled and bolted the other three holes. The other side of the headphone looked like it was breaking too so I repaired it as well.

Yes same headphones as in the video. My repair wrapped the metal banding around, theirs doesn't. Mine is stronger, theirs looks a little better.

looks the only chance you have is to use 2 component glue, and maybe something to reinforce the joint.

But if the original is desintegrating, you're out of luck - may have to fashion somthing out of an aluminium bar or such

Best way is to use baking soda and super glue. The resultant mixture works like concrete and is pretty hard. You sure have to apply it precisely and carefully. Don't forget to clean the surface to be bonded with alcohol or any body deo (alcohol is more preferable). Good luck with the fix.
