Good topic thanks for linking me.


But what about oil from hair that gets on the velour?  Do you guys care about this?  Do you wipe the headphones after each use or do you just let it dry?  (although I don't think oil really dries)

 

What about headphones where the velour has worn away completely and it's just the earmuff underneath?  How do I clean them?

Thanks

Also is it ok to use those canned compressed air dusters? I imagine you shouldn't blow directly into the drivers but a light puff here and there should be ok?

I own a pair of AKG Q701 in black. I'm sure many of you guys know, but they come with a lime green cable. Mine has been through hell, but still working fine. The only thing is, after running over it with my desk chair rollers, stepping on them on occasion and just leaving them be, they've become pretty gross. Any suggestions on how to clean the cable to make it like new again? Also, suggestions on what to use to clean IEM cables? I own quite a lot of them but rarely do they get a good cleaning.

(and you should see the insides of the left cup, there is more insulating tape there than in any hardware store you'll ever visit ^^)
