Default My favorite "recycled" IEM case so far

Icebreakers mint plastic container. Its small, flat, rigid, and you can take the labels off to make it look plain. Gives you plenty of room to label them too, in case you have multiple IEMs. The white top separates from the bottom so you can wash it out completely before putting your IEMs in there. I especially liked it because it has a pop-up opening on both sides. You could open the small one for the mini-plug and the big side for the buds and leave extra cable coiled int he container. that only really works for stationary use, not in pocket. Its basically free since you are getting the mints too...which arent half bad.

Nice that does look like a solid case, could probably fit a clip in there too hehe. I used to use an Altoids tin to hold my clip+ and iems in my backpack/jacket/hoodie pocket, but it kept getting mixed up with my herb tin so i use my Klipsch tin until i find better.


I'll have to try and find those ice breakers here and see how that works.

I use my Klipsch tin for....well, for my Klipsch. But I like how that looks. May have to copy that. Talk a bout a featherweight combo with a heavyweight sound...a Clip and an S4.

Yeah it's a good combo until the S4 die because of the crappy construction of the stress relief :/. hehe.

g.711, merged your thread with the one started the other day.

On topic, many headphones come with cases and for the ones that don’t some use tins or other little cases. Check out plastic and tin candy boxes, places like big lots or art supply stores can also carry some interesting cases.

If you want to go a little fancier, cases for small digicams work well, and provide a bit more protection than tin boxes, especially against chafing.

I have some Hama cases, they're good and not too expensive: http://www.hama.de/produkte/fotokame...ndex.hsp?lid=1

Those Hama cases are nice, reminds me of the one I have that holds the e200 and iems, but I doubt that SanDisk had them make them. I didn't think of including it or the banana wood covered altoids tin in the pic below ...



Edit: BTW if you use tin cases you can line the inside with thin soft foamies sheets, get mine from art supply store.

Hard to identify every manufacturer on them, as I picked up a handful of tips at a show, freebees, some are soft hollow black silicon, a few shure foamies and some others.

Edit: they all fit cx300s cept the shure tips, which are smaller.
