Want to protect your noise-canceling wireless headphones from the dust, sweat, grime, and wear-and-tear that can speed up the need to replace your earpads? Need a quick and easy way to maintain headphone/headset hygiene in the workplace or at home?
Whether reusable or disposable, good covers can extend the life of your earpads while making the experience of wearing headphones and headsets more comfortable, especially in high humidity or cold weather. They can also protect your headphones and headsets from hair products or makeup, and they lessen the need for using cleaning products with chemicals that may damage your gear.
Here are some headphone covers we recommend.
What to Consider in Headset Covers
There are a couple key things you’ll want to think about before buying headphone covers:
- Disposable or Reusable: Disposable headphone covers are a must-have in any place where headphones or headsets are shared or where your personal headphones may come in contact with viruses or bacteria that cause things like the common cold, the flu, or coronavirus. These are places like gyms, net labs, worksites, healthcare facilities, business centers, libraries, and educational settings—and in any place where head lice might be a problem. On the other hand, If you’re the only one using your personal pair of earphones and you only really use them at home, reusable headset covers will work just fine.
- Size: You’ll want to make sure you purchase covers that will fit the type and size of the earpieces on your headphones.
