I did redesigned the top.
Added some initials, too!

See my picture in the I made it column!
I will upload the .stl

Hi Greasetattoo, I'm glad you like it. The reason I put the loop hole on opening side of the lid is so that gravity would keep the box pressed into the lid when it dangles down. If I put the loop on other side then gravity might slowly slide the box off. I aligned the box holes on the EarbudBox stls on this page with the chain loop. So the chain loop should be sliding through those gaps, is that not happening? Maybe I could put it off to the side?

Hey,
GREAT idea! Love all the versions!
But, I printed the top with the loop on it for the chain.
I think the loop should be on the other side!
As, when I try to open the case, the chain gets in the way!
I am going to try to model the top with the loop on the other side.
I will post a picture and file too!
Thanks for the ideas!

Keep up the GREAT work!

Instructions

Thanks to TheCase for thinking up the lid idea to secure the headphones.

USAGE: Place your earbuds in the box and wrap the wire around the outside. When you've finished wrapping place the jack back in the box, feeding the wire through one of the available slots. Slide the lid on to secure the earbuds.

WHAT TO PRINT:

1. Pick a holder
You can print EarbudBox_v4.stl or EarbudBox_v4_5.stl as the earbud holder. You can also use any of my previous EarbudBox versions or TheCase's version, all listed below.

thingiverse.com/thing:39293
thingiverse.com/thing:39049

2. Pick a lid
If you don't want to connect a keychain, then print EarbudBoxLid.stl and you're done!
If you do want to connect a keychain, then print the lid with the loop connector EarbudBoxLoopedLid.stl and continue to the next step

3. Print the chain
Print 1 of ChainLinkBig.stl to connect the chain to the KeyCarabiner
Also print however many ChainLinkSmall.stl that you want to form the chain. At one end of the chain will be the lid you printed in step 2, the other end will be ChainLinkBig

4. Print the carabiner
Print KeyCarabiner_6mm.stl and connect it to ChainLinkBig. Alternatively search Thingiverse for other carabiners that might better suit your needs. There are different thickness ones here

Wow! Talk about the evolution of an object!

Well done!

I think your design (without the keychain) is perfect for the winter when I have a jacket pocket. I'll use the keychain lid in the summer when the earbuds will be going in my jean pockets next to my keys.
