Protecting your tech assets is a must for any institution, especially a classroom, hospital, listening center, museum, and more. Keeping items like your headphones in good shape can help extend their life, and allows for more people to enjoy them without any downtime. That’s why we recommend headphone covers for institutions that provide headphones to large groups, or when their headphones receive a high traffic of users. Not only do they extend the life of the headphones, but they can also be a great way to reduce germs and bacteria from spreading through your devices. Here are the details that can make those headphone covers worth your purchase.
Covers are a protective feature, especially for high-use, high-end headphones.
Headphone covers can provide a bit of support when it comes to keeping headphones in pristine condition. Like the plastic screen that covers a smartphone screen; the headphone covers are a thin barrier that will keep pads from becoming scratched, protect from minimal moisture, and block dirt and grime.
Many high-end, over- or on-ear headphones are made with leatherette pads, which are very comfortable. However, these pads can be slowly worn down by day-to-day use, especially when there are multiple people using them throughout the day. The leatherette also can become sticky and slick with sweat after long-term use.
Headphone covers solve these issues by becoming a small barrier for the pads. With each person using their own disposable headphone covers, keeping them covered will remove and reduce sweat, and protect the leatherette earpads continuous rubbing from wear.
Covers are a great way keep headphones clean and sanitized for multiple users.
Because many headphones are shared among various people, it can be hard to keep track of when they were lasted cleaned. Headphone covers are a worry-free option that will keep them clean. In addition, headphone covers are vital to the hospital and healthcare industries, where sanitation is key to maintaining healthy patients. Paired with sanitizing wipes for regular cleaning, the headphones will not pose any risk of transferring germs or bacteria to other patients.
Many types of covers are hypoallergenic, making them safe for all.
Many protective earpad covers are made using 100% polyester fiber, which is hypoallergenic. This makes it a great option for large audiences and users, in which you will not have to worry about a user’s allergies.
They are a cheap investment that goes a long way.
Headphone covers are relatively cheap and disposable, making them a smart choice due to their effectiveness when compared to their cost per count. They also save time on maintenance and cleaning: simply throw them away and replace them, without needing to buy a cleaning solution or taking time to wipe them down. For busy institutions like libraries, simply having them out and available to users by your listening stations will encourage their use, and save your staff some time from cleaning equipment every day or every week.
Types of Headphone Covers
You can find headphone covers suitable for all types and sizes. Since many headphone covers have an elastic band, they can easily be stretched over various types, even if you have numerous models in your inventory. It’s just important to know the diameter of your headphones, whether they are on-ear or over-ear. And since most headphone covers are made with polyester, it’s hypoallergenic.
As headphones get traded from one listener to the next, the headphone covers can help minimize damage to the earpads, reduce overall wear, and remove any risk from internal damage by minimizing dust and dirt from entering the headphones. Overall, they make a great addition to a classroom, listening center, library, and hospital. To go over your headphone cover options, contact us.
