Product Description

INTRODUCTION

Hello everyone, you are here because unfortunately you've been through the troubling experience of realising that the hinge on your Klipsch headphones has fallen apart. Now, you wish to fix your broken Klipsch headphones? 

Single (1x) unit price shown. You must add two (2x) in the cart to make a pair. 

I set out to design the hinge myself. After careful design inspection, drawings, 3D modeling and design changes, I have decided to put these out for sale for anyone who wants to fix their headphones and to use them for years to come. The hinge has been through 3 iterations overtime which were printed by me to test by using facilities at my university to make sure that it will work.

WHY WAS IT NECESSARY? SHOULD YOU BUY IT?

1. I have made fundamental design changes to work with the overall structure. I have carefully considered the pressure points on the hinges and aided it by making sure that there is enough material and support present. You can notice the legs on the hinge along with the hood, making it extremely strong and robust.

2. Although I purchased the headphones directly from Amazon. There are people who may have bought them second hand or from unauthorised resellers.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR REPLACEMENT

I have noticed that while it all works just fine. The tolerance can vary slightly depending on the printing. It is negligible. Basically, it may feel that the hinge and the cap for screws maybe a bit stiff at first but it will be just fine.

You will need to use the metal pins out of the current broken hinges for the speakers to be attached. You will need to be careful when inserting the metal pin, it requires a good bit of force the first time (please watch out for the wire on the inside).

Use a scissor or a knife to slice off the parts, i.e the bracket for the hinge and the pegs. I designed the whole product to be one part for a straightforward solution.The two rounded pegs are available to neatly seal the vent once the pins have been inserted. I am afraid you wont be able to take them off once inserted, but then again you won't need to. I've been using my Klipsch headphones for over 4 months now. I can assure you that the hinges will be the last thing to break.

I've uploaded the pictures that show that the 3D printout fits and works perfectly. I will make a video when I have time, or unless it is absolutely necessary although I have already assembled my headphones.

SUMMARY

While it may seem like a simple 3D design to create a hinge, but I can assure you that it wasn't the case. It required a lot of fine tuning and hard work. For example, the hinge design has to be extremely precise to get the circular shape back just right after installation, along with iterative design changes and a lot of patience.

But at least, we all have a solution to enjoy our headphones again. Thank you!
