  1. 1

    Buy a small container or case for your earbuds. This inexpensive option is a good alternative to leaving them lying around or wadding them up inside your pocket.

  2. 2

    Play your music at a lower level. A louder level will blow out your headphones, especially songs with loud bass. Loud music can also have a negative impact on your hearing.

  3. 3

    Make sure that you do not wrap your earbud cord around your iPod or MP3 player. This will damage the cable in the cord, causing the sound to cut out, which can be extremely irritating when listening to music.

  4. 4

    Be sure to clean your earbuds to get rid of any accumulating dust, dirt or sweat from building up inside of them. This could cause your music to sound muffled and even cause you to have an ear infection. You can use a cleaning solution or mix soap and warm water for this.
