About Ear Pads

There’s a whole host of ways to update and protect your audio accessories and many people will have their own preference, but a new set of ear pads are a fantastic way to instantly restore your headphones, while protecting the internal elements too. What’s more, they also help to reduce bacteria build-up on your current pair, which means you won’t have to continuously fork out for new and expensive models each time some natural oil or sweat accumulates.Check out OnBuy’s amazing range today!

What is an ear pad?

Ear pads, typically made from soft and flexible materials, enclose the speaker elements of your headphones. They’re there for two main purposes: hygiene and comfort, and shouldn’t be overlooked as one of the most important embellishments of your audio system. Despite how valuable and significant they are though, not many people take the time to appreciate and look after them, ensuring they’re constantly in decent working order. This is where replacement examples come in.

To keep your appendages looking spick and span, be sure to clean them regularly. Foam is a very porous material, which means it can easily absorb a lot of sweat and dirt through normal, everyday use. You must also store them properly, as dust can often gather on those that are loosely hung around your neck, or stuffed into the bottom of your bag. Keep them in a case if this problem often presents an issue.

Why are ear pads important?

The ear pads on your headphones are important for a variety of reasons. First of all, they act as a cushioned barrier and provide grip against the profile of your face. Good-quality models should be well-designed and made with durable, superior materials, in order to leave the wearer with a secure fit and maximum comfort (even for long-term use). Most of all, think about shape and design, as this will determine how much sound from the outside leaks in.

When they eventually wear out, it’s time to invest in a spare. You’ll know when it’s time to do this if: the foam has become worn or flattened over time, they’re emitting an unpleasant-smelling odour, or the headset is sliding around uncontrollably. 

Ear pads FAQs

How do I find out the size of my ear pads?

How often should I replace the headphone pads?

You should replace your headphone pads every 18 months to 2 years, as they can distort and wear over time. 

How should I clean my ear pads?

To clean your ear pads, all you need to do is dampen a small, clean cloth with rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down the exterior. Then, use a Q-tip or a cotton bud and rubbing alcohol to clean the nooks and crevices of the ear pad.

How can I protect my ear pads?
