Why do my gold plated headphone plug bits get scratched by simply inserting and unplugging from headphone jacks? I see they start to form a faded slightly purple ring or rings around the bit, or have a slight scratch on them. Is this normal? Look at your plugs and look to see if you see horizontal rings or slight vertical line scratches that appear white or silver on the gold plated plug.
