Hey guys.

 

 

With what and how should I clean my headphone pads? 

 

Note: They are made of leather! (leather conditioner? or saddle soap?)

 

 

Thank you very much if you can help me

Moist almost dry micro fiber towel cloth. Just wipe them down.

Are you sure they're made of leather?  Very few headphones use actual leather.

I hope Devils trolling, Bleach on leather....that's madness!!!! as most toilet cleaners use bleach or chlorine based chemicals in the cleaner it's self. I would use leather cleaner an a soft chamois cloth to do so. If this does not work use a rougher dishtowel*clean* and dampen it, clean thoroughly  and buff dry with soft chamois, apply leather treater and buff again. This is how I clean an softened my leather coats and shoes. Keeps the coats nice and clean, as well as soft and the shoes still have a leather luster.

I use leather cleaner/conditioner.  Leather conditioners and lotions get soaked up and help the leather stay softer, where it would normally harden up and crack if left on its own.

Don't ignore that second post--almost no headphone pads are made of ACTUAL leather.

Well, the limited edition SKDY Skullcrushers are made of sheepskin leather, and I know that because I AM IN THE LEATHER BUSINESS.

What a first post there mate. Necromancy and mentioning Skull candy in a rather advertisey way.

1. Wipe ears of body oil before wearing headphones.
2. (Optional) - use headphone covers from companies like Scan Sound

I find that showering regularly results in not having to clean my pads.
