Custom fit your in-ear headphones to make them stay in better and improve the way your music sounds

Custom moulded earphones are expensive. It can cost hundreds of pounds to get that perfect fit that blocks out external noise and lets you enjoy your music at its best.

This neat little video from the makers of Sugru show how this sticky modelling-clay like material can be used to create custom moulded earphones with standard earbuds.

Be careful, I lost a lot of my hearing because of headphones and earplugs.

I use earplugs to keep noise out, not blast it in. The trouble is, I can hear the bass through my whole body, and nothing I can do to plug that.

ear buds sound horrible, IMO. Try headfi.org for lots of review on different headphones, earphones and earbuds.

I use headphones such as the Sennheiser PMX-60 (discontinued, the one I own) for exercising, also known as neckband headphones, and full size headphones for everything else. Dislike earbuds, will not use.
