here's something you can do: make a case for your earbuds
things you will need:
wii nunchuck case
after you have unscrewed your nunchuck (if it's got triangle head screws you can just drill the screwheads off to get it apart), taken it apart and removed the electronics we can begin
Step 2: Bring wire through
hold the earbuds down with your thumb and bring the end of the wire through the z button hole.
pull the wire all the way through
Step 4: Joystick hole
next pull the wire through the joystick hole and snap the top down onto the bottom
then pull the wire all the way through
Step 5: Coil
now push the wire back into the hole, coiling it around the space inside
using a finger to guide it around will help
once you have it mostly coiled you can stick the plug down into the hole in the center
Step 6: You're done!
now you can throw that in your bag or your pocket or wherever without your earbuds getting tangled up or crushed or broken somehow
