Earphones went through washer and dryer and sound better? - Page 2

post #16 of 27

  I also accidentally washed a pair of iems, the cx300ii to be exact. The benefits were immediately  noticeable, every time i used them i could smell the mix of spring flowers and lemon freshness . They still sounded like crap though .

I washed and dryed my JH13. I don't know if they sound better now though. They shrank. My 1 year old son uses them now. He seems to like 'em. When he learns how to write I'll ask him to do a review here.

Does the mod work with the HD600?

Why don't you try it yourself

I actually did the same thing with my iBud. It is still working and the sound changing from muddy and dull to crystal clear and transparent.

 

Just kidding. The washing and drying part is true but the iBud sounds worse after that.

I eagerly await detailed impressions! Perhaps you could have them up in the next few years or so? It's amazing that you and your son have such a similar shaped ear canal...

sounds pretty nonsensical to me friend, it's in yo head.

I (stupidly) left SC Titans in the wash and I found them several weeks later when putting on my pants. Was surprised to hear they still worked. Audio quality still seems to be the same.

I'm guessing the reason that they still work is that they don't have batteries or power running through them so they can't electrocute.
I will probably die from rust contamination though

LOL! I completely forgot about this thread. Funnily enough I still use (and prefer) said earphones to this day.

 

I still don't know what happened in the drier that magical night...

Sadly my westone 3's (which ironically were my back up set whilst my customs got sorted out) were in a pocket and went through the wash.  Noticeable drop in bass :(

SAME! I just did a load in the wash and saw my earbuds in the bottom of the washer and they sound better and its just so crazy! I thought they were ruined but apparently not.

I've had the same experience (earbuds went through the wash after having been left in my pants pocket—not just once, but probably 3-4 times—and they sound better) with my Samsung earbuds that came with my Galaxy S Captivate back in 2010. The bass seems deeper and a bit less distorted, the highs seem a bit airier, and they can play louder without distorting. Unlike yours, though, mine have never been through a dryer cycle, since we don't use one in our house.

 

If anyone knows the model number of the earbuds that came with the Galaxy S Captivate (AT&T version of the Galaxy S smartphone), I'd love to find a new pair and do an A/B comparison.

 

Glad to know I'm not the only one (and that I'm probably not crazy, or at least not due to thinking my earbuds sound better)! :-)
