IEM's: Where Do You Store Them...

...when you are not listening to them?

post #2 of 42

I store them in their cases. I wrap them up, and so far it seems to be working.

 

I'm still trying to work something out for on-the-go. I usually just let them hang out of my shirt, but that's a bit hard on the collar.

If it comes with a case, then in that.  If it doesn't, I find a spare one...  They don't cost much either :p  And I have about 3 cases that say MEElectronics on it :p

BTW, got a pair of HiFiMAN RE-252's & it came w/ a plastic clear box, but was thinking of something for it & my Cowon J3...

Just buy a case for it...  It works fine.  As long as it's not exposed to the elements, it should be fine. 

 

I also wrap mine using the over-under method.

altoids tin or pelican 1010 microcase or the case/sleeve it came with.

There must be a better after market choice than an altoids tin or a camera case...

In one of these very small and crush proof UE cases.

Those are the best!
The only earphones I don't like in them is the Shure which I prefer to carry in the clam shell. The kevlar wire is a little thick for the UE case.

I keep mine on my desk when not in use, When i'm out and their not in my ears.. i actually push the buds under my bra strap so they don't swing around and they don't get crushed in my handbag, Pitty guys can't do this because it's a really good place to store IEMs to keep them safe lol. etysmile.gif

Me too. Then I use a Velcro tie to keep the cables together and store them in a case if they came with one. (The real problem now is a have so many cases I need somewhere to store them! I blame you for this Head-fi!)

Call me cheap and ghetto, but I use the twist tie that came with my headphones :p  Each one seems to last a month or two :)  Then I put them in a case.

 

I may try this though.  Looks a little more promising and durable :p

Call me blase, I just keep them in my pocket wrapped (loosely!) around my ipod. I listen to my music a lot, and the constant coiling and uncoiling for cases is not worth the effort. Although next time I go on holiday I need to remember to bring the crush proof case as I totally forgot and they stayed in the bottom of a bag which wasn't great under books and suntan lotion :O. But they still very much look pristine though.
