The AirPods Pro are such an amazing accessory for your Apple devices. They work so seamlessly between iPhone, iPad, iMac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch, so you can take calls, enjoy music, listen to your favorite podcasts, (or even tune out your co-workers or the noisiest members of your household).
To keep your AirPods Pros looking and lasting their very best, it’s important to clean them regularly. And if you’re reading this article and thinking “Uh-oh, I’ve never cleaned my AirPods even once,” don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
First of all, your AirPods Pro are probably dirtier than you think. Most of us know that our phones pick up a lot of bacteria throughout the day as we put them down on counters, desks, restaurant tables, etc. Your AirPods Pro can also gather bacteria from your daily use. Whether it’s moving the charging case from your gym bag to your desk or your kitchen counters, the case comes into contact with a lot of different surfaces, many of which are crawling with germs or bacteria.
Then, you have the actual AirPod buds themselves. The silicon tips are great for making a tight seal around your ear, so you have superior audio quality. However, those silicon tips aren’t that breathable. If you’ve worn your AirPods Pro during a spin class or an outdoor run on a hot day, you know how sweaty they can get. Plus they’re exposed to things like make-up, hair products, sunscreen, bug spray, moisturizers, and dirt and debris from the world around you.
Then, there’s the oil from your fingers as you tap the stem to change tracks or just picking up and holding the AirPods Pro case. If you have a nice premium leather case like the ones from Pad and Quill, that can go a very long way to protecting your AirP
The AirPods Max are Apple’s newest entry into the world of wireless headphones following the very successful AirPods and AirPods Pro. They offer exceptional sound quality, noise cancelling technology for noisy environments, and, of course, the pair seamlessly to all your other Apple gadgets.
The downside is that they also come at quite a high price. At $549, they are certainly not cheap so you’ll want to make sure you do everything you can to keep them in tip-top shape so they’ll last you as long as possible. Giving them a good regular cleaning can help you protect your investment, and yourself.
Keeping our things clean and sanitized was important even before the events of the past year, but in this day and age, it’s all the more vital to keeping you and your family healthy. Luckily, keeping your AirPods Max clean is quick and easy.
If you caught our previous post about keeping your iPhone clean, luckily the AirPods Max don’t have any unique display coatings or materials to worry about destroying. However, you still need to be careful as they are still somewhat delicate and quite expensive.
The biggest thing to watch out for is not to get any water into the earpieces themselves, as that could damage some of the delicate components inside. You’ll also want to be careful not to use harsh cleaning chemicals when cleaning them so you don’t damage the materials.
You’ll want to clean the AirPods Max and the ear cushions separately and Apple offers some tips on how to do that on their website.
