These are my headphones. They're wireless, but can be used while their charging cable is plugged in.
My desk is wood, ~3/4" thick, with a square edge (not tapered).
I want to be able to hang my headphones under or off of the edge of my desk, and additionally be able to store the tip of the charging cable on that hook when I'm wearing the headphones. But the cable needs to be able to come out of its trap, so I can charge the headphones while wearing them.
In short, here are the three requirements:
- Is robust enough to support the headphones
- Has a trap for the headphone cable (a standard micro USB cable)
- Releases the cable easily without fiddling
I attempted to create a hook solution out of sugru, but the texture was all wrong. (I wish I had a photo, but I've since removed it. It was essentially a wedge with a slit down the middle so I could stick the cable in.) I couldn't get it to cure at the right angle, so the hook part was too horizontal and that combined with the smooth texture made the headphones fall off too easily.
I've thought about the binder clip trick, and that might work well for my headphone cable (except for the part where I need to remove it from its trap easily), but even a large binder clip is too small (or not hook-y enough) to secure my headphones. I've seen IKEA hacks like this one, but they only solve the headphones part, not the cable management part.
What can I use to create a headphone hanger and cable manager?
