Hey, guys. I just got into Hi-Fi a few months ago with my first decent pair of headphones, a pair of grados sr60i. Lately I've been wondering how I should store them when I'm not using them. I've searched around the web and this forum, but I've received some mixed & old messages. I know this is an absolutely noobish question, but I'm a poor student so I really care about keeping my equipment working for as long as possible.
I have a ton of desk space, and I'm wondering if leaving the cable in a huge square-ish loop (for some reason that's the way it naturally curves, possibly because I was storing it in oblong loops for awhile) or using the over-under method is best for storing it. I feel like just one big loop will give the least tension, but I've read a lot about adding tension memory to the cable or something and I don't want that. Or maybe I'm missing some other preferred way to store it?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
