Perfect Fit In-Ear Headphones

After looking high and low on the internet, I got a pair of Kilpsch Image S4i (II) In-Ear Headphones.  I like them; sound is good and they work seamlessly with the iPhone, but none of the 5 different ear tips they provided fit just right.  It sucked, I started to regret the purchase.  It got me thinking… can I modify some foam earplugs – those things fit really nice?

I believe that being handy is learned skill – best to start ’em young.

Got so annoyed with myself for always needing to walk across the shop to get a cutting tool – So I sat down one morning and I built this little rig. It is just one continuous piece of webbing with a few stitches and some elastic. I wear it like a gun holster under my arm.
