Give em a good wipe !!

Post by Macroman » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:57 pm

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. ::g ss47

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.
