I got a pair of headphones (Direct Sound DX-29) that have a plastic backing ear cushions that look to be a plastic & rubber hybrid material. The cushions almost feel like leather.

Anyhow, I bought some replacement speakers for these headphones including new ear cushions and they came with double sided sticky tape as an adhesive. The things is, there is a double sided sticky tape on each side of the cushion, but not on top and bottom, making the cushion come undone at the top. I am looking for an adhesive to hold the cushion to the plastic backing. I was thinking about rubber cement glue.

I don't want anything permanent like super glue. I want to be able remove the cushions at a later date in case I need to replace the speakers again. I was thinking rubber cement, do you guys think that would work?

Perhaps a Clear or colored if one matches, silicone sealant. They don't dry hard and can usually be rubbed off.
