I have a pair of Grado headphones with rapidly degrading foam earpieces. Sometimes this part wears out far before the headphones, making them uncomfortable to wear. Flickr user ofenjen made little crochet covers for hers using embroidery floss and a tiny crochet hook. Crafty and functional! Spotted in the CRAFT Flickr pool.
