Q.

Using earphones without sponge

Is there a health risk associated with using earphones without the sponges as opposed to using them with the sponges? The sponges makes me itch, so I take them off.

Dear Adele

The Purpose of the sponge is mostly comfort and it protects the earpiece from dirt and earwax. I don't think there are any risks that you need to be concerned about, just make sure that you keep the earphones clean.

Please let me know if you have any further questions
