Wireless Headphones...Several Tips for Proper Care

Aug 17, 2007
Of course, the advantage of wireless headphones is...no cords! That means convenient listening wherever you are without the hassle of cords becoming tangled, getting in the way, or even causing potentially dangerous situations.

But there are still other accessories that you'll still need with your headphones. And both professional wireless headphones users and true audiophiles will want to have some of these accessories on hand to make sure that they are never without the use of their headphones.

Of course one of the first and most important accessories for your wireless headphones are batteries. Headphones do need power to operate and many of the smaller kinds simply use a little of the power that comes off of the listening unit to power the small speakers. More powerful headphones require an amplifier to power the wires. But wireless headphones don't have the luxury of drawing power from the device or using an amplifier. Instead, they need to use batteries to power the small speakers.

Another accessory you'll want to make sure you have is an ear pad. The type of ear pad will depend on the type of ear piece your wireless headphone has. Ear phones that simply rest on top of the ear and send most of its sound into the ear canal usually have the most inexpensive and highly replaceable ear pads. These headphones, though, are not always the best kind to listen on because they let in a lot of exterior noise and they don't direct all of the sound into your ear.

If you are using one of those small, metallic wireless headphone and microphone combinations for when you're talking on your hands free cell phone (using Bluetooth technology), you may consider getting a small carrying case for it. Those Bluetooth phones are a great way to stay connected and keep your hands free for driving or note-taking but if it breaks, you'll potentially be at a loss in your business and unable to communicate with customers or vendors or staff.

Even if you have wireless headphones that you don't necessarily use for work but want to make sure they function well should go inside a soft carrying case. The ideal carrying case has a hard outer shell (usually of plastic) and the inside is lined with a soft interior (such as foam or felt). This will protect your wireless headphones from crushing and being dropped.

Another type of accessory you'll want to consider is a gentle cleaning solution. Headphones, including wireless headphones, are notorious for not being properly cleaned. The dirt not only captures and stores potential viruses in your wireless headphone but also can result in the early breakdown of the unit. Gently cleaning the outside with a gentle cleaning solution (for example, one that includes a mild water and alcohol combination with a cotton swab or "Q-tip") will keep your wireless headphones working for quite some time.

Wireless headphones can be a higher priced investment to music enjoyment or professional hands-free convenience. Keep them in top working condition and always at the ready to work well for you.
