Ways to Reduce
Take Good Care of Wireless Headphones
Keep your wireless headphones away from heat and direct sunlight and keep them clean and dry. If they get wet, allow them to dry completely before putting them back in their charging case. Additionally, use a protective cover for your earbud case to protect it from damage and extend its life.
