Keep both my MTPC and ie8 in the two cases provided by Monster from my MTPC.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the input.

 

I bought this hard drive case at Best Buy:

I can put the HiFiMAN's in the netting portion & the J3 & USB cable in the banded-side.

I just leave them on the desk or use a rubber band and put it in a compartment of my backpack. While I like the case of the IE8s, it's just too bulky to be even reasonably portable.

Why does that sound unhealthy to the cables? eek.gif

 

Not fond of the cases? I don't see how much space one of those Shure clam cases will take in a backpack.

I also use the velcro tie. At Wal-Mart you can pick up a box of six of them(various colors) for about two bucks. These work so much better than a twist tie, and last so much longer also.

 

Anyways, like most I store my earphones in whatever case they came with. I loosely over-under wrap them, secure the velcro tie, and pop them in the case. I am thinking of getting a pair of TF10's though, it's cool they come with a crush proof case.

I like how the Velcro ties actually loop around the cable though so I never have to worry about keep up with them. I have been using the Velcro for probably about 6 months and have not lost or wore it out yet. I am sure I will need to replace it eventually though.

Have you seen how much of a brick the IE8i case is? It's thicker than my Droid X, and it's just as big! And it also takes time to wrap the headphones into the case!

To be fair I usually use a rubber band and a plastic bag. I really can't stand cables getting tangled up and bent unnecessarily.

That's why I recommend the Shure clam case. They are small and you only need to wrap the headphones onto your fingers before sliding them into the case. Takes only a few seconds to do and increases an IEM's longevity by a mile.

i just use an altoids can.  It works really well for my 535s.  All i do is roll them up around my fingers and then just put them in,

I use my old razer case. Still looking around for anything better though.

I just bought this Stainless Steel card case at Daiso for $1.50 (or can be ordered online 12 for $20 + shipping from the website).  I haven't used it yet but a pair of A151's fits perfectly in it.  The case is about the same length and width as an altoids tin but noticeably thinner.  It's definitely heavier and stronger.
