Hi, you're watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to change the earbuds on you Samsung Galaxy S5 headphones or really, on any other type of headphones that have silicone earbuds.

Steps

  1. 1
    These are the headphones that we're going to be discussing.

    Now, the reason that we would want to change the earbuds has to do with the fact that sometimes your earbuds can get a little bit dirty, and they can get a little damaged. But you're headphones still work fine, so rather than replace the headphones, we simply take the earbuds off.

  4. 4
    You simply pinch the earbuds with your fingers and you just pull and they pop right off.

  5. 5
    You have this little earbud piece here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    And you've got your headphones intact.

  7. 7
    Now you can take a q-tip, insert your q-tip into here.

  8. 8
    Give it a slight twist, and that will help clean out some of this. Your earbuds can also be cleaned with a q-tip, or you can simply wash them in some warm water and let them dry. As you can see in these earbuds here, there is a bit of fuzz and dust.

    Now the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a pack of additional earbuds, here we have a pack of 3 different earbud types.

    So lets go ahead and empty these out so I can show you for the demonstration.

  11. 11
    So we've got a larger headphone earbud.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Then we've got a slightly smaller type of white headphone earbuds.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    And we've got an even smaller set.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Now some people have different sized ears. Let's move the ear buds a bit more so you can see.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    As you can see, these are different sizes. There's absolutely designs for different people's types of ears. So lets start with the smallest size set and its the same as pinching it off.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Just put the end of the earbud piece into the hole.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    On the end of the silicone protection piece and you will hear a little click when it pops in.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    There you go, its popped in, its that easy. Now if you compare the two, you can see that there is a fairly significant size difference, both in terms of their width and the actual protection of them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    So when you're setting up the new set of headphones for yourself, one of the things your going to do is make sure that they actually fit your ear. For me personally, these are kind of large, so I am going to be switching to a slightly smaller set.

    If you are fashion conscious, you could actually get coloured ones, red, blue, green, neon colours, glow in the dark colours. Take a quick trip over to Amazon and take a look at what they have. So that, ladies and gentlemen is how you change the plastic protectors on your earbuds, and keep using your headphones and keep them clean.
