I haven't ever done this, but either method should work. Personally, I'd try the air can first as that's the least invasive option:


  • Air can.
    It's simple: use an air can to blow out dust and lint that may have accumulated in the hole of the headset jack.
  • Q-tip.
    Carefully insert a dry Q-tip in the headset jack to clean it out. Be sure to do this gently so you don't cause damage to your device.
