Hi to all,just thought that I would pass on a good tip an old now retired metal detectorist told me.
During this very lengthy hot weather apparently it's very very easy to get a nasty ear infection by virtue of he sweat that gathers in the ear pieces of your headphones.
Sweat carries some nasty bugs than can manifest into giving a very nasty ear infection.
So please remember to give your headphones a good wipe with an anti bacterial wipe,before you go hunting and again when you get back home.
Thanks for reading...and as always...Good hunting...

Thanks for the tip! Those ears do get sweaty in heat.

It's a very good point and in view of this, it would be seem prudent to give the old lugs similar consideration too.

Hi, I use disposable ear piece covers soaks up the sweat, would not go without them now, why they make headphones with plastic covers I don't know, really sweaty in the summer.

Good advice, though I suspect it's not going to help the sales of second hand headphones

I’m going to be out in my backphones this morning, I was hoping to have received my xp headphone adapter that I ordered last week so I could use earbuds but Royal Mail appears to have lost it.
