Noise Canceling Headphones

If you are anything like me, headphones have probably cost you a lot of money. It is important to ensure that your headphones last longer. We will be reviewing the top 5 best ways to prolong the life of your headphones.

1. Get a Bag or a Case

The best way to protect your headphones is to carry them around in a bag or case when you aren't using them.

You want your headphones to be protected from the elements. A headphone stand can also be used to protect your headphones. A spare banana hanger is a great alternative to buying a headphone stand. Keep them safe from pets and younger children.

2. Protect and Clean Your Leather Pads

The easiest way to clean headphones is often the best. You can clean
headphones with tap water without worrying about any extra elements getting in your leather pads. You can use plain tap water with a sponge or cloth to clean your headphones. Avoid using polishes made from water/acrylic, which can cause damage to leather earpads.

You can clean the headphones with a soft, damp cloth or leather cleaner if they are really dirty. You can protect the headphones by applying leather conditioner, which costs about $15 per bottle, twice a year. To ensure that the conditioner doesn't damage the leather, you should first test it on your headphones.

3. Stop wrapping your earbuds around the music player

In-ear monitors and earbuds are a great way to listen to your favorite music. If you are anything like me, your earbuds are used almost daily to listen to your favorite podcasts, beats, and shows. Incorrectly storing earbuds can be one of the biggest ways to destroy them.

Wrapping your headphones around the music player is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your headphones. It can damage the cable, especially if it is wrapped tightly, and also put strain on your plug. If you don't bend the wire in a certain way, your music might become choppy over time. Do not let this happen! Make sure to unplug headphones before you loosely attach them to the music player.

4. Clean Your Earbuds

All of us have wax in our ears. There may be more wax than others and some might get lost in the earbuds.

You may find that your speakers are clogged up by wax buildup. This can cause a decrease in the sound quality over time. To remove these contaminants, you should clean the buds often with a needle or similar object. A cotton ball soaked with rubbing alcohol could be used to clean the interior and edges of the buds.

5. You should properly coil your headphones (not a figure eight).

A quick Google search will show you a lot of information about how to coil headphones. Quality headphone websites advise that cables should not be wrapped in a figure 8 or wrapped around headphones.
