How to discharge electrostatic headphones.

    Okay, excuse my ignorance, especially seeing that I have several pair of electrostatic headphones.  But I keep reading comments about the need to regularly
    discharge electrostatic headphones, especially the ESP-950's and Jades.  How does one correctly discharge electrostatic headphones, and why is this

    All you need to do is touch the metal contacts on the plug.
    You might receive a slight shock though.

    lick the contacts

    Heh, might be fun to lick them.
    Discharging the phones' should make it attract less dust, by reducing the electric field strength inside the drivers. Not really a big deal if you keep your phones somewhere relatively dust-free (inside a drawer works for me).
