I'm thinking of purchasing a pair of used IEM's on Craigslist, and was just curious about any hygienic issues that I should be concerned with when purchasing second-hand.
Aside from replacing the tips, is there anything else I should be worried about? Should I clean the insides of the IEMs, and is there any way to do so? Or am I pretty safe with just buying new tips?
I was hesitant at first to buy second-hand, but I noticed that lots of people seem to post their classified ads in the For Sale/Trade section, looking to sell or buy second-hand IEMs, so I presume this practice isn't totally uncommon.
Debating if I should hold off and just buy brand new, or whether I should be safe with just getting new tips. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
