True wireless headphones have become accessories used daily by phone users who want to give up wires, either voluntarily or because the new smartphones no longer include audio jacks. However, those who have used such headphones for a long time know that they require little maintenance, as they get dirty quite easily. But there is now a solution for those who want to keep their headphones clean at all times, without effort: a special washing machine for true wireless headphones: Cardlax EarBuds Washer.
Cardlax EarBuds Washer is a miniature washing machine, special for wireless headphones
Currently Cardlax EarBuds Washer is just a project on Kickstarter, where the company behind this concept raises money to bring this product to market. However, it could quickly become an indispensable accessory for those who use such headphones. The device has a cubic shape and includes both a mechanical brush to remove wax particles from the headphones and a tub, which “washes” the headphones using isopropyl alcohol.
In a few minutes, the headphones are cleaned automatically, without much effort. What used to be done with cotton swabs, alcohol and probably a toothpick to remove dirt is now done almost completely automatically using the Cardlax EarBuds Washer. And inside, the tub is made of silicone, so it can be removed and washed separately.
The creators of this miniature washing machine boast compatibility with a wide range of true wireless headphones. They mention that the shape of the headphones doesn’t matter so much, mentioning models from Samsung, Bose, Anker, Jaybird, Jabra and Aukey. However, the video operation demonstration is made with a pair of AirPods from Apple, the most popular headphones of this kind on the market.
