Cleaning headphone ear pads/headband help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I recently bought a pair of used Beyerdynamic T70p headphones and have really enjoyed them so far except for one thing....the earpads and headband stink!

 

When they arrived I think the previous owner had sprayed them with something to mask the smell but that has well and truly worn off to leave a odourous stench which is really annoying me!

 

The earpads are removable but I am not sure about the headband, does anyone have some suggestions of how best to clean them both without causing any damage/corrosion etc?

 

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Warm water with a drop of mild soap - liquid hand soap works fine.

 

Squeeze pads to work the suds through.  If they stink so much you may want to let them soak for a while.  Maybe go with antibacterial soap (but I wouldn't use anything containing alcohol).

 

Rinse well, again squeezing water in to get rid of all soap residue.

 

Don't worry if the foam doesn't take back its shape right away; it will when it dries - unless it's really worn out, in which case you might as well buy new pads.

 

Let dry on a rack.

 

I used this method to wash my Sennheiser pads a couple days ago.  They look, feel and sound as if they had never taken a beating for the past 3 years...
