Whether you are a user of AirPods 3 or Samsung Galaxy Buds2, the observation remains the same: these headphones are in contact with your ear and accumulate as much external dirt that the earwax produced by your body. In order not to harm your health or compromise their performance, here is a short practical guide giving you some simple actions to adopt to maintain them.

Exterior cleaning and precautions

Of course, don't even think about running them under water. Instead, choose an alcohol-based disinfectant wipe, or a non-abrasive, lint-free cloth, lightly moistened to clean the external surfaces of your wireless headphones.

However, you should carefully avoid touching the speaker mesh, a surface very sensitive to liquid infiltration. Those containing alcohol could even accelerate the corrosion of internal components. Wiping this area could also accidentally push the earwax deeper inside the earphone.

So, for the speaker and microphone mesh, consider using a dry cotton swab or a soft-bristled brush , without pressing too hard. This will gently remove dirt without damaging your headphones. Another fairly effective technique is to apply a small piece of fix paste on the speakers to remove stubborn earwax residue and to scrape the last scrap with a wooden toothpick.

Care of tips and housing

For models like AirPods Pro or Galaxy Buds 2 equipped with removable silicone tips, it is possible to clean them very simply. All you have to do is let them soak in a small bath of warm soapy water for half an hour and dry them. For the most obsessive, it is quite possible to use a UV box to remove any unwanted matter.

Concerning the charging box, also will need to be dry cleaned. Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to wipe away dirt. Even if it is possible to slightly dampen the cloth with alcohol or water, it is imperative to ensure that that’ #8217;no drop of liquid enters the charging ports. With these few simple actions that are more common sense than complicated rituals, you will keep your headphones in good shape for many years.

  • Cleaning the headphones should be done with a cloth or a slightly damp wipe.
  • For the speaker mesh, it is possible to use a brush, a cotton swab or fixing paste .
  • The case should also be cleaned carefully to prevent liquid from entering the charging ports.
