Does rubbing alchol degrade the sound quality of headphones?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Stupid question, I know. But I tried cleaning some of the parts of my Sennheiser HD650 and only afterwards did I realize it might have been a stupid move.

 

I wiped down the headphone plug with rubbing alcohol, then I did the same with the detachment points. If you're familiar with the 650's, then you'll know you can detach the headphones from the cable. The I used rubbing alcohol on both the plugs on the cable side as well as the jacks on the headphone side.

 

I'm worried that might have degraded the sound and I can't exactly tell if the sound has changed or not. I might be paranoid and think it degraded but it might not have....

 

Anyone got any input? Thank you.

There's nothing wrong with cleaning the pins and the plug with alcohol. Just stay away from the pads
