What is the best way to take care of your comply foam to prolong its lifetime ?

Hi,

 

I got various model of comply foam Tx-100 and T-100 and also the Westone "mushroom" grey foam, I wonder what is the best practice to make sure that it last long with daily use ?

 

Does Comply Foam should be discarded or changed after certain usage period ?

Don't have sweaty/oily ears, or wipe them down often.

wash them with soapy warm water every week or so

Hello,

 

You actually never want to use soap, rubbing alcohol or other detergents as even the mildest of them can break down the foam.  You also want to avoid handling them immediately after applying lotions or hand sanitizers.

 

You can clean your Comply Foam tips by gently wiping them with a clean, damp cloth (water only).  Allow the tips to air dry completely before their next use. 

 

Beyond this, we usually advise the general common sense care of your ears and your listening device (clean ears, nice storage pouch or case, no excessive heat or cod) are sufficient care for your tips.

 

I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best Regards,

 

Mary

In my personal experience, wiping them gently on a rough cloth like denim, carpet, nylon, or corduroy cleans them well with no risk of damage.
