Ever have your earbuds or IEM's rip out of your ear because it was snagged on something? I have. It makes a nice suction in your ear and hurts when they get ripped out. Not to mention the damage sometimes caused by it. My solution? Binder clip and a zip tie. Put the two together and clip the thing to your shirt.....no more painful ear ripping action. And you can pop out your earbuds and let them dangle while you converse with someone or whatever...ready to be plugged back into your skull when you're done.
