Rubber earbud covers fall off, get stuck in your ear or lost
The white rubber flying-saucer earbud covers to the Body Glove over the ear stereo headset come off too easily during ordinary use, and get lost. The large size covers frequently stayed in my ear and got stuck (my nurse puled it out!) or fell out where I couldn't find them,. Same with the mediums, or else they fell off in my jacket or bag pocket. I kept the small size covers longer, but now 1 of the last 2 covers has disappeared between taking off the headset and putting it on the next morning. 8 weeks and I've run through 5 of 6 covers. No other headset has given me this problem! 1) Who can I call to get an apology and free set of replacement covers? 2) What should I use to glue on the cover size I like best? 3) Will Body Glove comment?

I'm assuming u have bluetooth on stereo find bluetooth on ur phone, turn it on and find the device u need. I do it old fashion way with cord has headphone jack on one end to plug in phone and red and white to plug into stereo. If u really want low tech cassette tape with headphone jack works too.
When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.
If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.
I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.
I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.
Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.
i think i might have fixed the same problem i had with mine. I took off the gel cover thing and put a tack or saefty pin in the hole of the gray speaker cover. pull the cover out and clean all the ear wax off the speaker part. it works great now after i cleared the ear wax from the sound hole.
You can purchase new rubber caps for Philips earbuds on ebay from seller "auction2world". They are called replacement earbud cap. Unfortunately, you need to purchase the whole set of 3 different sizes.
It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed
somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can
try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle
the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens
wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still
nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable
bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you
likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be
difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short
is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo
jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then
fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in
place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be.
Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base
of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of
the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a
stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds
may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving
a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
