    same thing happened to me, but I even dried them. Oddly enough, they seemed to work better after. Pre-washing I had problems with the right earpiece going in and out (seemed like a bad connection at the microphone part of the right side). SOmetimes the right earphone would just cut out completely and I had to fiddle with the microphone to get it to work. After I washed, I never had the problem again.

    However, I think it hastened the little rubber ring coming off from around the edge of each earpiece.

    If they had died, it would have been a blessing in disguise--bundled headphones traditionally suck donkey ass in terms of sound quality.

    I have done this twice. Both times they came out good as new.

    Mine went through the washer AND the dryer... the first day I got the phone. LOL Thankfully they still work just like new and I don't have to buy new ones (like I did after my original iPhone headphones went through the washer/dryer 3 times). I guess I really need to start checking my pockets :D
