How To Clean Google Pixel Buds Pro | Google Pixel Buds Pro

Important

  • Do not use any chemical detergent, powder, or other chemical agents (such as alcohol or benzene) to clean the earbuds or the charging case.
  • Do not clean the earbuds or the charging case while they are charging.

Clean the charging case

  • Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to gently clean the exterior of the charging case. You can also use the cloth or cotton swab to clean inside the charging case’s magnetized pods, especially the charging contacts, to remove any built-up material.
  • If necessary, you can apply water with a damp, lint-free cloth to gently remove scuff marks on the exterior of the charging case. To avoid damage, avoid getting moisture into any openings, like the USB-C® port.
  • Do not use any liquid, including water, to clean the inside of the charging case.

Clean the earbuds

  • Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to gently clean the earbuds, including the charging contacts.
  • If necessary, you can apply water with a damp, lint-free cloth or cotton swab to gently remove built-up material or scuff marks. To avoid damage, avoid getting moisture into any openings.
  • For each set of Google Pixel Buds, we recommend different earbud cleaning methods:
    • A-series: Only use your lint-free cloth
      Pro: First, use your lint-free cloth and if there is still debris, use an adhesive putty.
  • Wipe the buds and their charging contact area dry when putting them back into the charging case. The Google Pixel Buds A-series case is not water resistant.
