It is because of its turning, bending and twisting. So in order to avoid this turning and twisting, we need to take a simple step.

To keep the headphone wire safe from tearing we use a pen spring to keep the wire straight. We simply insert a pen spring in between the two terminals of the headphone.

Some people also use electric tape to keep it straight but that’s not a good idea. Because these tapes causes degradation in headphone plastic covering.

Sometimes even jack becomes useless when our phone does not support it. It is bacause when we use a single headphone in many other phones. Its rings across the pin becomes unfit for the mobile for which it is made. So never us a single headphone with many phones.

The most effective enemy of earpiece is the water. Some people uses earphone during rain. This is nothing but an act to prove themselves foolish.

So, whenever you got in rain cover the earphone with plastic or some kind of it.

In case, if water enters the earpiece. You need not to worry anymore. Just keep it in sunlight or blow hot air on it for some time. Most probably after doing this your earpiece will start working properly.
