Hi Team

 

 

 

I have lost the middle sized ear cups that came with my earphone and now only have the small ones or the big ones 

 

I wanted to know if anyone knows if I can get some or do I need to buy new earphones?

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks

More detail required. Do you mean in-ear / canal phones? What make / model? The little ones that go in your ears that have little rubber parts? Most of them fit most earphones, but some are specific to the earphone. You could ask the manufacturer.

The cheapest way to start is pick up a pair of cheapies at somewhere like the Warehouse (we got earbuds there for $2 the other day.) Then try them on the ones you have. Often even the cheap ones have three different sizes in the packet. 





<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

just go to one of those $2 type shops that sell  earphones for $3-$4 and usually have a set of those rubber plugs and use the middle ones they are pretty much a universal size. or as above lol

Update:

 

 

 

I purchased a $5 per from the warehouse. They looked like they would fit my earphones but didn't 

 

So I put them back in the box and left them on the bus for someone less fortunate then myself. No shop will let you return earphone or headphones anyway unless faulty.

 

So I don't think I'll continue looking I feel I'll just be wasting time and money I'll have to make do with using the one medium ear cap I have left and the larger one for the other ear.
