I normally just wear mine in the shower about once per month to wash the pads.  Sometimes, when I feel real brave, I take the iPod into the shower too and listen to tunes while I clean them.  I've found that shampoo does pretty well and as soon as you finish washing your hair, you can move into the ear pads.  Plus, when you rinse them, the shower water does a great job of getting all the soap out of the pads.  Enjoy!  biggrin.gif

The song was awesome. I'm digging The Prototype even more though.

Amazing track. Listening to all of the artists mentioned here on LCD2.2, awesome stuff.

iPod in the shower? You guys are nuts!! I drilled a small hole in my shower and installed a water proof 3.5 jack that feeds right to my desktop amps. If you're gonna do something, you might as well do it right.

I agree, my HE-400's barely get loud enough from my iPod. Especially when you have all the shower noise in the background.

A true audiophile doesn't take showers, they take bubble baths to minimize any noise and maximize headphone enjoyment while cleansing themselves.

Can confirm.

I usually wash mine in a hot spring or under a waterfall near my camp house. Very efficient and pleasant methods.

Sometimes I also take them to the beach with me. The salt water and hot sun clean it very fast.

A TRUE dedicated audiophile would not shower or clean themselves in any way because the THD and SNR when showering is unacceptable.
