I hope an actual case comes with the DBA-02 in your next batch Ethan. The cleaning cloth I got was understandable since it's was a last minute thing but not everyone has multiple cases like I do and that thing is still in my desk drawer gathering dust. The leather case did look like it would protect well so I would assume a proper case will come with the next batch.
Also yes wrapping these earphones around your mp3 player probably wouldn't last very long. Too many things can go wrong that way. Get a good case (ebay is cheap) or use an altoids tin can and they would work great. I have many altoids tin cans that are now used as earphone cases.
Soon I get to hear mine again :) Ironically shortly after I sent the DBA02 off I got a package of tips to try on the DBA02 :P
