5 amazing hacks to increase the lifespan of true wireless earbuds

By Cleer Audio

We all know that feeling. It starts with static sound from one side of your true wireless earbuds and one fateful day, that side of your earbuds stops working. You end up with a horrible and pointless feeling - just being able to hear music in one direction is a complete disaster.

So, how can you increase the lifespan of your treasured true wireless earbuds? Keep reading!

Store them in their charging case

The first, and most obvious tip, is storing them in the carefully crafted charging case that most true wireless earbuds come standard with. This will ensure that they’re protected, always charged, and ready for your next adventure. By keeping the device protected, you’re already ensuring the longevity thereof.

Think of something like the Cleer Audio ALLY PLUS II earbuds. These state-of-the-art earbuds offer so many impressive features like industry-leading noise cancellation and a battery life of up to 11 hours of playtime. And while this is important, they also come with a handy charging case to offer on-the-go charging while protecting the earbuds.

Avoid humidity and moisture

Speaking of true wireless earbuds' performance, sweat can affect your headphones. And that's because of a little thing called humidity. Water can be in different forms:

  • A sweaty workout

  • Moisture is in the air around you

  • Water splashing in your ears after showering or a surprise rain shower

We cannot control the weather. But we can control how we store our headphones.

Keep them clean

Sweatproof doesn't mean you don't clean your headphones - because cleanliness doesn't just affect your health, it also affects the health of your headphones.

Headphones can be contaminated by the environment inside our ears and outside where we use our headphones.

Reduce the accumulation of earwax

Earwax can block the treble and distort the stereo. Also, earwax builds up and hardens, so wipe it off to prevent your headphones from malfunctioning over time.

You can buy a kit online to clean your headphones cheaply. If things get a little muddy, you can soak your earmuffs in hot, soapy water for a few minutes. Use a cotton swab to dig deep into each small hole so that every ounce of dirt, dust, and debris is taken care of.

Improve functionality

It may be time to slow down. Especially before you use your true wireless earbuds for the first time. The initial shock of high volume can damage your internal speakers, so if you want to turn it up, at least don't do it too much.

A heavy bass boost also puts a lot of pressure and it can suppress the speaker in the ear which is not designed to handle the power of the low sound. Look for premium true wireless earbuds that can take the booming bass you love, giving you clarity and great sound!

But be kind to yourself, and don't make the music too loud. This not only extends the life of your headphones but also that of your earbuds.

Invest in durable headphones

Maybe one of the reasons your headphones don't last long is that they weren't meant to be.

Get true wireless earbuds built to last. They may not be cheap, or always an investment. With strong connections, strong wiring, and a warranty in place, they are sure to last you a long time.

This principle applies to audio products in general, so don't be afraid to invest a little if it means better quality and longer life.
