My problem was that I could have picked about three of those. Based on what I learned in college about chemistry, physics, and engineering: I believe phones break in mechanically. I believe components break in due to minor chemical changes that take place in capacitors and resistors. I believe solder joints are affected depending on the compound (I'm not saying I know the difference between compounds, just that current affects different metal combination differently...
I was just about to start a new thread, when I found this one (I love search). Some of the things I have been doing with my headphones: Cleaning pleather: Seabreeze and other skin cleaners work pretty good, don't leave a residue (and if they do, stop using them) and I think help the material last longer.
