How do I clean the earbuds? I'm concerned about the moisture of a disinfecting wipe.

    I clean all my headphones once a week by dipping a kleenex tissue in a solution of rubbing alcohol (drugstore kind) and wipe them down (ear buds, mic area, control buttons, etc.) Just don't saturate your kleenex too much. I never had any problems with this method as the alcohol evaporates really quickly, leaving your headphones sanitized naturally and clean :) Hope I helped!

  • Use a piece of cloth or paper, wet it just a tiny bit, and clean the outside of the earphones whilst trying not to clean the middle as some moisture might get in. But I'm sure if you don't wet the cloth or paper too much, cleaning the middle shouldnt be a problem.
