How to Clean a Headset

by Linda D. Yelverton

Are you wondering how to clean a headset? I will tell you how to clean it because you will notice that this piece of equipment is very delicate.


The first thing you should do is to remove the ear cup of your headset before you start cleaning it. You must remove the ear cup or else the dirt and debris will get into the battery connector. If you fail to do so, you might experience interference when you use your headset.

The next thing you need to do is to wash the headset. Do not use soap, because soap can damage the connector. One thing I would recommend you is to put the headset in warm water and dry it using a soft cloth.

Next, you have to make sure that the plugs of your headset are lubricated. Make sure that the wires are fully inserted and that the wires are not rough. You can choose to do it yourself by putting a little bit of oil on the wires and the contacts of the plugs.

After you have lubricated your headsets, you need to clean it carefully. First, you have to turn on the device and then use the cleaning cloth to wipe the dust. Next, you have to press the headset into a soft cloth and let it dry for five minutes.

Lastly, you can put the headset in the washing machine. Wash it by spraying it with any detergent. Then, you have to turn on the machine and let it run for half an hour.

Finally, you can air dry the headset. You must make sure that you turn the power off so that it will not be damaged when you are doing this. If you are still using your old headset, you must switch to the new one.

Remember, there are some things that will make your headsets to malfunction. For example, if you will be using iTunes for your headset, make sure that you know how to transfer files to it.

For this, you must turn off your iPod, then press the keyboard key, which is called the iTunes icon. You must then select “iTunes” from the list and then transfer the file to your iPod.

On the other hand, if you will be using your headset with headphones, you have to use headphones. This is because headphones can reduce the audio quality if they do not fit properly.

Also, the wire that is in the headphone should not be damaged. To do this, you can attach a small piece of wire in your headset.

Try to do it yourself, but you should be familiar with the steps of doing it. That is why you need to follow the instructions on how to clean a headset.
