The mic is driving me crazy

Does anyone else notice that the mic on the (stock) headphones always gets 'stuck' on your collar? When I'm driving and I turn my head to change lanes, the mic hooks on my collar and pulls the earbud out of my ear! I guess if it was more 'bullet' shaped it would slide over clothes better. Ok end of rant....

Get some clear epoxy at your hardware store and make it "bullet-shaped" yourself. Do one side of a time, hanging upside down to get the "tear" shape.

either that or a careful duct-tape application. but you could probably get a smoother finish with the former.

Oh my god! That sounds like a lot of work! I'd much rather just rant about it. Seriously, I'[m probably going to sand/file the edges down a bit. As long as I don't damage the cord, I doubt this could make it any worse. acosmichippo - Thanks for that input at least I know thats not the solution.

lol! I hear you, but in all seriousness, the stuff I'm talking about is really easy to work with. Use a toothpick and put it on, smoothing it to a taper... hang it to dry glass hard + clear in five minutes. Repeat for the other side.

I dunno, I been using clear epoxy on everything lately. Look for the double tube (squeeze out a little of both and mix with the toothpick). I love this stuff. I'm about to try it on my cheerios.
