Headphone Keeper

I saw this link on the Make blog about a project to make a headphone cord organizer out of an old credit card. I’ve been meaning to put it together every day for the last month, because my Zen V Plus becomes an unruly mass of lanyard and headphone ever single time I put it in my pocket. It only took 5 minutes to do when I finally sat down to do it. I haven’t road tested it yet but now my cord is an organized bundle on my coffee table. This just might do the trick.

  1. I’m not sure why this cracks me up, but that is exactly the method used to keep track of extra marionette line.

    Mary, it makes perfect sense. If the solution works, it works. In retrospect, it’s also the say small bits of yarn and kite string are kept as well. I’ve been using this for a few days now and it is a vast improvement from spending 5 minutes untangling the headphones from the lanyard every time I reach in my pocket.
