    rules totally, this is the way I adopted to wrap my earphones in the last year, I'm just using a strip made with duct tape and neodimium magnets to hold firmly the wrap

    3: you wrap the rest of the cord the opposite way between your fingers. 4: you pull out your little finger and replace it with the headphone jack.
