Hi all,

I recently bought a couple sets of headphones that contain a significant amount of leather and was wondering what the best product(s) to use would be and also how to use and how often to use the products.

I'm relatively new to the headphone hobby and I want to make sure my cans are cared for as best they can be going forward. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

To add to my post, what about wood? I have the T60RP's so I'm curious how to care for the African Mohogany on them as well. That is, if they require any regular conditioning / cleaning to maintain them.

Regarding leather cleaning, Lexol is fantastic. It’s a two step process, first you use it’s cleaner, then you apply the preservative.

Awesome, thanks!

Is this something I should apply to a new set or is it more so for cleaning after much use?

Brand new headphones likely won’t need the cleaner, just the preservative. If you want to be extra careful, I’d still use the cleaner at the get go. You’re going to need both anyway for down the road.

Thank for the help man. I bought the lexol cleaning and preservative kit from Amazon. Now to research application techniques etc.

Oh, also, is the lexol used on pads as well? Just want to be sure I don't damage anything.

Yes, you can use it on your pads, too. I’ve used it on both leather pads as well as pleather pads.

Ok, awesome. Thanks

So you can use it on pleather as well? That's good to know.
