Place Baking Soda in the area where the hinge broke. Next, add Super Glue into the baking soda. The Baking Soda will absorb the glue and become a hard substance to act as support. Sand off any extra substance so its flat and smooth. Finally, add 2-5 wraps of duct tape(thin) to give extra reinforcement. It cannot fold anymore but won't break or feel ackward.

Thank you for the video, I literally just got done repairing my daughters Sony Gold headset using this method. The only thing I would add is that I put the retainer pin in the vice, cut with hacksaw then filed the cut ends smooth so they went in nice and tight (using needles nose pliers) into the 1/16th holes that I drilled in the headset. I also then put a few drops of superglue around the plastic seems that are covered when the headset is open. Just don’t open the headset until the superglue completely dries or they will be stuck open permanently.

If Blue get royal blue hockey stick tape from Amazon or other retailer. Cut strips to run lengthwise with curve and place on inside and outside then wrap crosswise like wrapping a stick or racket. Super secure and decent looking. No fold though. Both my hinges failed.

I realize this is an old, seemingly dead thread, but I’ve spent the past few days looking for solutions to fixing this issue for my own PS Gold headset, and in searching through eBay for replacement parts this evening, a photo of one of them inadvertently taught me that the small, circular Left/Right indicators on the inner headband just above each earpiece are actually caps covering some screw holes! I haven’t really seen it mentioned anywhere else yet, so I figure I may as well leave that info here, in case it’s helpful to anyone else in future.

You’ll want to use some fine-point tweezers or something to get under the outer edge of the cap (it’s kind of angular-shaped to conform to the cirviture of the band, so I recommend prying it from either the left or right side of the cap, rather than the bottom or top), and then it takes only a little wiggling to work it free and pop it out, but it’s not too difficult. Underneath that is just a small Phillips screw you can get at with a PZ00 screwdriver/bit. Then after unscrewing the screw, you may have to wedge a jimmy or something along the seam to pop the plate off, but that also isn’t too hard, thankfully.


I was very nearly just going to try JC Rides’s solution of drilling some new bracket holes into the outer frame, but discovering these hidden screws makes it much easier to dismantle said frame around the broken hinge, without having to ruin the exterior of it with drilling. I just finished Gorilla-gluing the cracked hinge brackets back together (pictured above), and hope to see if that does the trick for now once the glue sets.

Look for a product called "FiberFix". You should be able to find it on Amazon or possibly even Walmart locally. It's a repair tape that you wet and apply, as it dries it cures rock hard like a cast. It comes in 1, 2, and 4" wide rolls and it relatively cheap. A two roll pack of the 2 inch stuff is about $10 bucks and can easily repair two sets of headphones (both sides).

There's a product called JB Weld Plastic Weld, that is like a two-part epoxy, except it comes as two play-doh parts instead of liquid, and is designed to bond with plastic. Make sure to get the Plastic Weld, not regular JB Weld. About $7 for a cylinder of it, you'll only need about a quarter of that.

Take a file or very rough sandpaper and rough up the area around the weak hinge, for better bonding. Then set the broken ear of the headset back in place as much as possible. Cut off some of the Plastic Weld, thoroughly blend the two parts by kneading. From this point you have about 9-10 minutes to get it in place. Pack the inside of the hinge with as much Weld as you can press in there, mold the rest over the inside and around the outside of the hinge, making a solid 1-inch band around the hinge. Might as well do the other side too, it's going to break eventually if you don't. Use a straightedge to make the top and bottom of the weld band nice and straight and smooth, make sure that the sides are continuous from inside to outside, one solid band around the hinge.

Put some small object between the earpieces to just barely flex the headset outward. You don't want the earpieces to be bent inward at all as it dries, but you also don't want to put something in there so large that it dislocates the broken earpiece, either. Let it dry completely, according to the directions, I think it's 24-48 hours. When dry, take a Sharpie and color the gray weld band black.

Your hinges are now stronger than any other part of the headset.

I just fixed both hinges and the weak area right above the hinges. I highly recommend using this Loctite Repair Putty. You may not win any style awards but it is easy to use and incredibly strong, and takes less than ten minutes to fix.

Hot glue that mugg bro! Both my hinges are broken, I went all arts and crafts on those suckas. The worst part of having these headphones is the sour cat !#^& smell they retain after absorbing a little sweat. God forbid, these headphones sound amazing, who would ever want to wear them in this godforsaken Florida heat? Not me, I say...
