That apart, it is important to remember how and where you keep your headphone. Sometimes we leave our headphones out in the open or still cramped in our bags. It is good to have a designated place such as a table or a cupboard. This will ensure that your headphone is not harmed in any way by chance, like for example, the spill of a beverage or food on the headphone, or broken by mistake through some action, or exposed to extreme humidity, heat or cold. Instead it will be in a safe place and you will always know where to find it.
Too long exposure to music can harm your ears and may even do the same for your headphone. The headphone like every other gadget heats up after a point of time and needs some time to cool. An hour or two is fine at the most but people who listen to music for hours on end can end up damaging their headphones.
While travelling, try to always carry your headphones in a case. The cable is the first thing to wear out. However, some sort of shape maintenance while packing up your headphone works wonders in the long run. Also a case makes sure your headphone is well protected at all times.

With these basic beginner tips, your headphones will be well maintained and give a good performance throughout.
