We also know the value of hand-washing to stop the spread of bacteria and viruses from one person to the next. The same is true with headphones because they’re routinely placed on different individual’s heads without sanitization between uses.
A number of studies have shown that organisms such as pseudomonas, staphylococcus, and strep – not to mention some of the more dangerous viruses – can exist on headphones if they’re not sanitized between uses. Therefore, headphone sanitizing is extremely important for good hygiene and to reduce the spread of disease.
