Adjusting the Latch and Catch
– Get the necessary equipment. – For this task, you will simply need long-nose pliers. If you don’t already have one, you can pick one up at the hardware shop near you for less than five dollars.
If you don’t want to spend the money on the tool, you may use anything else that has a sturdy, pointed metal tip instead.
Expose the hinges. – Make the hinges visible Take off the ear muffs of your Beats by Dre headphones and move them aside from the headband. This will reveal the hinges.
Locate the pin of the hinge. – A thin metal rod may be found positioned in the exact middle of the headband at the spot where the arms of the ear muffs connect to the band. This is the part that holds the hinge together.
– Tighten the hinge.– Grab your pliers with a long nose and carefully raise one end of the metal rod or pin toward the headband at a time using them. This will cause the hinge to become more secure and prevent it from moving around.
Take special care not to scratch the metal arm on which the pin is put or the plastic portion of the headband while you are removing the pin. Just the very end of the pin should be bent, not the full length of it. Be careful not to rip the pin out of the metal arm as well. Repeat steps 1 and 2 on the second arm if it too is loose.
Doing Tests on the Headphone
