As a teacher, you know how important it is to provide your students with the necessary tools to learn and succeed. Audio equipment like school headphones is essential for modern education, but repeated use can quickly become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, maintaining proper sanitation practices in the classroom has become even more critical. Keeping school headphones clean and well-maintained is crucial to preventing the spread of germs and ensuring their longevity.

Here are some tips on how to properly sanitize and maintain school headphones for long-term use:


1. Use Sanitizing Wipes

Sanitizing wipes is a quick and easy way to clean school headphones. Choose a wipe that contains at least 70% alcohol, and gently wipe down the earcups and headband. Follow the manufacturer's instructions, and don't expose school headphones directly to any liquids.

2. Use UV-C Sanitizing Boxes

UV-C sanitizing boxes are another option for cleaning school headphones. These boxes use UV-C light to kill bacteria and germs on the headphones' surface. Simply place the headphones inside the box and let it run for the recommended time. UV-C sanitizing boxes are an effective and efficient way to sanitize school headphones, but they can be more expensive than sanitizing wipes.


3. Use Disposable Ear Cushions

Ear cushions are part of the headphones that come into contact with the students' ears. By using disposable ear cushions, you can easily replace them when they become soiled or worn out. This is an excellent option for schools that don't have a lot of cleaning supplies or want to ensure their students are as clean as possible.

Learning Headphones offers a variety of disposable ear cushions for school headphones. Check out their selection of ear cushions here.


4. Regularly Inspect Headphones

It's essential to check on school headphones often so that any problems can be fixed before they get worse. Check for any signs of wear and tear, such as frayed cords or cracked ear cups, and replace them as necessary. This will help ensure the headphones' longevity and prevent any potential safety hazards.


5. Store Headphones Properly

Proper storage is crucial to maintaining the cleanliness and longevity of school headphones. Store them in a clean and dry location, away from dust and other contaminants. Consider using storage solutions such as racks or hooks to keep headphones organized and out of the way when not in use.

6. Consider USB School Headsets

Another great option for schools is to invest in USB school headsets. These headsets have built-in microphones and can easily connect to computers and other devices via USB. They are perfect for online, distance, or hybrid learning environments.

Learning Headphones offers a variety of USB school headsets that are durable, easy to clean, and affordable. They are designed to withstand frequent use in busy classrooms.



Maintaining proper sanitation practices for school headphones is more important now than ever before. By following these tips, you can ensure your students have access to clean, well-maintained headphones that will last.
