Two-way Radio Earpiece Care in 5 Easy Steps

how to care for earpieces

Along with the rest of your two-way radio equipment, damage and replacement of covert earpieces can be fairly costly to your business. Therefore, it is essential to make these handy accessories last for as long as possible and to operate effectively throughout that period of time. In order to achieve operational efficiency; regular cleaning, thorough maintenance and general care are all key.

The following 5 tips will ensure that covert two-way radio earpieces last as long as they should and remain fully operational for that time:

1. Keep it clean

The need to keep covert earpieces free from ear wax and external grime (most often transmitted via the fingers) is obvious but nonetheless crucial. Use a damp cloth or alco-wipe to ensure your earpiece remains dirt-free and hygenic.

This process will drastically reduce risk of ear infections and will also keep functionality consistent.

2. Change the filter

All quality in-ear receivers include a built-in wax filter. Make sure you have a stock of these filters to hand from your supplier and change each filter regularly. This should avoid sound corruption and reduced audio volume. Aim to repeat this process every few months to keep your earpieces in tiptop condition.

It's also worth knowing that the more you use your in-ear earpiece, the more wax your ear will typically produce and therefore the more regularly the wax filter should be replaced.

3. Twist in

Avoid damaging your earpiece and bruising the ear canal by inserting covert earpieces into the ear carefully and correctly. Most quality earpieces are not quite straight – i.e. they are slightly bent in shape – and should therefore be twisted gently into place to plug the ear canal. Do not force them straight in as you may damage your ear canal and will not experience the best possible sound quality.

4. Remove batteries

Batteries can leak and the resulting liquid will destroy your covert earpiece. Therefore it is often a good idea to remove the battery when it is not in use.

5. Storage

In addition to removing its batteries, also keep your earpiece in a safe and clean place. It is a good idea to keep all accessories and batteries together.
