Which aspects should be paid attention to in headphone maintenance?
Like most electronic devices we use, earphones also need careful maintenance to have a longer lifespan, especially for some audiophile headsets that are not cheap. Damage is indeed a heartbreaking thing. , So we must learn to protect our headphones when we use them, so in addition to not pulling hard in daily use, are there other things that require special attention from headphone users? Today we will talk about this issue.
For headsets, the earmuff shell is undoubtedly the most important place to protect, and some headsets also use special materials, such as the earphone cover made of wood paint. This is to pay attention to waterproof, moisture-proof, Anti-scratch, there are also some headphone heads that choose gold-plated plug design, which is very helpful for reducing impedance, but this layer of gold-plating is generally very thin. If you pull it out multiple times, the surface will wear out quickly, so It is recommended not to unplug the earphones when nothing is wrong, and this can easily cause the earphone jack to loosen and cause poor contact.
Many people like to "burn the machine" for the new earphones. After they get the earphones, they start to use the earphones continuously, and often adjust the volume to a high level. In fact, it is easy to damage the earphone diaphragm because the earphone diaphragm is relatively hard when it leaves the factory. The sounding principle of the earphone is the vibration of the diaphragm. Large volume is likely to cause the greater the amplitude of the earphone diaphragm from the original position, the more difficult it is to restore the original position, and ultimately cause damage to the earphone diaphragm. Therefore, it is recommended that you first “burn” the earphones at low and medium volume, and try to listen to the sound quality at a high volume without getting the new earphones.
Due to the special material of the earphones, the earphones should be stored in a clean, dry area, and if possible, put them in boxes or bags. Similarly, the area where the earphones are stored also needs to maintain the temperature of the matter and should not be too high or too low. For some foldable earphones, do not pull it when folding to reduce the chance of accidental damage. At the same time, it should be noted that in the case of high temperature and high humidity, the diaphragm of the earphone is easily deformed, so the earphone needs to be placed in some ventilated, dry, and suitable temperature environment.
For many headsets, the ear pads are also easily damaged. If they are left unused for a long time, they may also cause the earphones to age. Therefore, we need to clean them frequently to avoid stains. In addition, it is best to put the earphones in the box or bag that comes with the earphones after use, and it is better to put some desiccant to prevent the rubber from aging and deformation.
For wired earphones, storage may take more time. At this time, you can make full use of the accessories that the earphones are equipped with, such as a cable reel. Some earphones have a very long cable (3 meters), so you don’t need to use a long cable. You can roll up the earphone with a cable reel to avoid breaking the earphone cable, because it may be difficult to determine whether this kind of situation is caused by human factors or the earphone itself when reporting for repair, so you will also face a lot of problems during after-sales maintenance. problem. If you are using headphones, it is also a good choice to use a headphone holder to store the headphones.
