How to store your wired headphones to prevent them from tangling

In the world of mobile audio, it’s time for Bluetooth headphones and headsets. But most smartphones are still sold with wired headsets and very high-end Hi-Fi headphones also have a cable to connect them to a port. But how do you store the cables of these devices so that they do not get tangled?

Headphones tangled in the bottom of the jeans pocket is a problem that shatters the productivity of much of humanity. In recent years, the world of new technologies has found a solution: quality wireless Bluetooth headphones. You will find the model that suits your ear in our guide, without a doubt. But if you have headphones sold with your smartphone or high-end Hi-Fi headphones, the problem of knots in the cable may arise. We explain very simply how to store a headphone cable so that it never gets tangled.

Store your headphone cable neatly using only your fingers

  • The operation is quite simple. First of all, you just have to put on the two headphones at the end of your middle finger and ring finger and of them fold in the palm of your hand.
  • Then stretch your index and little finger like in a rock concert and start to wind the cable by making eight between the two fingers.
  • Keep a little slack on the end (about 6 cm) and put it in the hollow under your middle finger and your phone book. Repeat several times and on the last turn, pass the jack plug under a cable to seal the knot.

Handling requires a little gymnastics which will require a little practice on your fingers… it should become automatic after a few tries.
