Measure the distance between your ears and where you are going to keep the iPod. Then you make small loops in the cord and pass the ends of said cord through the loops. Shorter cord.
I have a Grado SR80 (I suspect it's very old since my uncle gave it to me). Anyways, it has a very long cord that prevents me from making it portable. From what I have read, some people have no trouble with this and their iPods on their outings. What's their secret?
Where in the world do I put all that cord so that I can finally take the best headphones that I have in my possession with me?
