Noise reducing earbuds are made to block out external noise before it reaches your ear. These noises are cancelled out and this allows the music to be heard with more clarity and without the need to turn up the volume. These lower volumes and less interfering external noises help protect the ears from hearing loss that is sometimes associated with using standard earbuds. However, since the earbuds fit inside the ear it is important to keep them clean and also know how to reduce any pain that may come along with having them inside the ear canal.
Since noise cancelling earbuds are in direct contact with the ear canal, keeping them clean and sanitary is crucial. This is because the earbuds can carry bacteria. The earbuds are made to seal the ear canal and this creates a prime environment for germs to grow in the dark and humid environment of the ear. Wearing the buds for exercise or extended time periods can cause sweat to form in the ear, which just adds to making the ear canal a target for bacteria. These bacteria can set you up for an ear infection. While not usually serious if treated, the pain from ear infections can be very unpleasant Wireless Earbuds,Touch Control Ture B07H18FYL8.
To prevent bacteria from building up it is important to take steps to keep your noise reducing earbuds clean. Not only can bacteria build up, but earwax can get into the earbud and cause it to become clogged. This also affects the sound quality. The sleeves of the ear buds should be cleaned regularly using either warm soapy water or an antiseptic such as alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. Never put the ear buds directly in water. A dampened cloth used to clean works just fine. If you use foam sleeves they should be replaced regularly since they cannot be cleaned.
