Clean your headphones

You must clean your headphones periodically. Because, when you use them for a long time every day, dust and dirt particles can interrupt the sound from the headphones and long-time use of headphones create heat in the ear canal which eventually results in ear wax. Thus, the headphones’ outer layer is blocked due to the ear wax.

You can clean your headphones with a soft cloth and toothpick. You should make sure all the connections are accurate and there is no wire burnt or disconnected from the headphones.

Clean the ear tips with soapy water and then let them dry. It will help remove any ear wax. You can clean your earbuds with a dry toothbrush by simply rubbing them on the mesh of the earbuds. Now, you can wash them with a dampened cloth and afterward simply dry them.
