Yeah I wouldn't use oil. If you're going to lubricate it I'd use lithium grease, that white stuff also used to lubricate garage doors. Many oils will degrade and soften the plastic which is not what you want.
If your referring to lubing headphones, the best lube I found was going to a hobby shop that sells RC cars and get a small container of diff lube. Its a clear silicone paste that works well and doesn't just drip/run off
