I have fairly decent headphones (Sennheiser HD 455s) and they have a 3 meter long cable. This is great if you're sitting around at home, not moving about, but I go all over the place and having a huge cable just shoved into my pocket (inevitably catching on something) was a total pain. So I looked around the apartment for something to keep them contained, and that's how I came up with my Coin Roll Cable Holder Thing.

Step 1: Enter the draggin' (cable)

First, identify the end of the coin roller that has the curled-in edge. Pull the headphone plug through that end of the coin roller and out the flat end. This helps keep the cable in tightly and won't let anything slide out by accident.
it's funny you have your cat involved in this. My cat has killed about 4 phone charger cords, 7 headsets, 2 (very nice) speaker cords, and 3 headset charger cords for the wireless headsets to fix the cord problem (>.<) oh yea, she's also gnawed the heck out of the xbox 360 power cord...not through it thank goodness, caught it and taped it up before she electrocuted herself. Cats....go figure. This is a great idea! Thanks :) even the twist ties don't work against her!
Don't those phones come with a wrap already like the 202's?
i'm gonna do this but with a shotgun shell!!! i got a pair of sennheiser pxc 250 and a bose over the head, so this gonna help
I've got to ask - what is a coin roller? I'm assuming it's got a conical end that you've pushed the plug through, but wanted to clarify things a little
A coin roller is a paper tube you can aquire from most banks, usually for free in which you can roll up your coins for deposit, as most banks will not accept loose coins for deposit. Paper coin rollers come in various sizes for the various denominations of coin. In the United States, the smallest coin roller is for dimes and holds 50 coins ($5). Quarter rolls are the largest over-all sized wrappers and hold $10 worth of coins. The largest diameter coin roller in the US is for "Golden" Dollar coins (or Susan B Anthony dollars). This roller is shorter than the quarter roll but a bit wider. It holds 25 coins. Paper coin rollers acquired from a bank are usually flat and must be unfolded to insert coins in them. It is possible to find coin rollers like the ones in the picture, which have pre-crimped ends, which are usually used with automatic coin sorting personal banks.
