    So, I dont have much information about this and I couldn't find any Threads about this issue.

    So about 5 hours ago, I dropped my Headphones into a pan of oil. Now only the ear thingies went into the oil. So i didn't use them/didn't clean them and left them for about 5 hours. And I just went to use them and the audio is really bleak and anti-bass.

    So i was wondering if anyone has any tips/ideas for me to use? I've already used a toothbrush to clean the hole things at the top/side.

    Nothing short of a scrubbing and a strong detergent would remove the oil, and doing that will in itself destroy the headphones. It's time for a new pair.

    Better idea. Nothing to do about this matter.
