What do I do if the headband of my headphones is too loose?

Headphones are designed to fit the widest percentage of the general population however every person is different and some wearers may feel the headband of the headphones is initially too loose.

A common trick to make the headband of headphones tighter is to place the headphones over something (like a stack of books) that is slightly smaller than the headphones currently are and then wrap the headphones with a cord or elastic band to squeeze the headphones inwards to make them tighter. The purpose of the object between the headphones is to ensure that the headphones are not squeezed too tightly as you don't want the headband to crack. NOTE: The headphones may need to be left in this position for a day or two or the process may need to be repeated a few times until the desired headband tightness is reached.
