Default Nox headphone power button mod...

I have a hard time distinguishing, by touch, the power button as opposed to the volume buttons on the minelab equinox headphones. The power button is sandwiched between the two volume buttons and all are the same height and my fat thumb has a hard time figuring out which button is which. So I cut a very thin piece of 1/4" dowel rod and glued it to the power button. Now with the power button standing slightly proud of the volume buttons it's very easy for me to turn the headphones on and off while wearing them. The glue I used is loctite stick and seal extreme conditions.

Good idea, that button is especially hard to find when wearing gloves.

I had some of these left over from putting on my Deus buttons so I did the same as you and put one on my EQ headphone button.
