I bought my Shure IEMs probably 8 months ago. I could never get the tips off, and I was perpetually afraid of freezing them. Today I finally got sick and tired of disgusting headphones, though, and decided to pop them in the freezer. Who would've thought doing the one thing everyone told me to do would actually work?
I removed the medium tips and put on a pair of small ones which seem to fit about the same, though I may wind up going back to the mediums. My question is, can I clean the nearly 8 month old pair of mediums I just removed and use them again or should I just toss them and buy a new pair of mediums if I decide I need them? Essentially, at this point after multiple hours of use a day is it just time to get rid of the old pair or could they be cleaned and reused?
