    You used a cleaning cloth to clean the earpiece grille, then noticed something shiny in said grille? Is this happening around light bulbs or other bright sources of light? If so, it could it be that you removed a layer of earwax that was covering it and/or you polished it too much and now it’s reflecting light from nearby light sources?

    I hope they used a disposable brush. I hope they’re not using the same brush to clean everyone’s earpieces. Otherwise you've probably got a whole bunch of strangers’ ear germs and bits of earwax in your ears now.
