Tough little headphones...

I can officially declare, though I wouldn't recommend trying this at home, that the iPhone packaged headphones CAN and DO survive a full wash cycle, delicate setting in cold water using Kirkland brand detergent and an hour in the dryer on low heat. And boy, are they clean.

Forgot I put them in my pocket on the airplane and when i got home, just dropped the pants in the wash with all the laundry. :eek:

yeah but try running or exercising with them and get the slightest bit of sweat and the little microphone/button shorts out. So far i have been running 4 times with my phone and had this happen every time. Give it time to dry out and it works again.
