How to Clean In-Ear Headphones
In-ear headphones can sometimes get clogged with earwax. When this happens, it's likely to effect your sound quality. You will get a longer life from your earphones if you clean them regularly. Here's an easy way to clean headphones without damaging them in the process.
Things You'll Need
- 2 small dishes
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Rubbing alcohol
Remove the cushions from the earphones. Replace these periodically, as needed.
Pour about 1/2 an inch of hydrogen peroxide in a small dish.
Hold your earphones facing downwards. Dip them into the peroxide and let them soak for two minutes. The peroxide will loosen the earwax.
Remove the earphones and dab them dry with your towel.
Add 1/2 an inch of rubbing alcohol into a second dish.
Dip your headphones into the rubbing alcohol. Remove to let them dry. Put the ear bud pads back on the headphones.
