A small earbud spool with a box area to protect the buds from crush damage.


All of our printers perform slightly differently so I've included 6 different sized holes for the jack. First print out Hole_Test.stl which has 6 holes in it, from left to right, small to large, 1 to 6. Insert your headphone jack into the holes and decide which one fits the best, then print out the appropriate EarbudBox STL i.e. if hole 5 fits the best, then print EarbudBox_5.stl.

USAGE: Place your earbuds in the box and wrap the wire around the outside. Insert the jack into the nearest hole when you've finished wrapping.

I really good design, but it works best for right-angled minijack plugs. Would be great with the holes at an angle, for the rest of us.

I have another design that suits straight jacks too.. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:65731http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Hi Steve, nice site. I'll try and adjust the angle of those holes at some point.

Have you considered using version 4 of the earbud box.. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:39442http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

It has lid, and both the earbuds and jack are contained within the box before the lid is slid on. I prefer using that design as the final wound state is tighter, smaller and more secure than my other designs. It will also work for straight jacks. I've been using the lid without the chain attached so I can't comment on how effective the chain is.

Earbud Box v4 with Keychain

I did take a look at v4, but I was rather put off by the clunky chain and carabiner, which just seemed to make the whole thing more bulky than it needed to be. But I'll try a print now!

v3 has an option without the chain you can try. That's the one I use.
