Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question but I couldn't figure out where it could go...


I have some new earbuds for my Samsung A3 but I would like to source some decent foam earbud covers for them. When Dick Smith were around you could buy a pack of 10 or something for 50c. Kicking myself now as I should have just bought 10 of them before they closed down, but I didn't think to.


I got some from a guy on Trademe ad they're okay but they seem really flimsy and not too sturdy (ie, tearing easily). The Dick Smith ones were about perfect (as well as some other ones I had) but I can't seem to find good ones anywhere...


Anyone got any suggestions for some good ones?


Thanks :)

Like this on aliex?


I got some replacement foam ends for my shure IEMs from there, way cheaper and do the trick nicely.

I’ve used before, just plug in the headphone model and it shows the ones that fit.
Although at the moment I use generic foam ones from AliExpress to the same effect.

That's the kind of thing I need. The ones I got from Trademe are okay but a bit flimsy - when trying to fit one yesterday (and I was being quite careful) it ripped the ear pad so I to throw it away :(


Thanks for the suggestions :)

I got mine in NZ online...worked out cheaper than elsewhere. I think AV World or somthing similar had a good deal.
