Broken Headset

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i keep tripping over my headset wires and making my headsets worthless piles of ****. Anyone have tips to stop tripping over them besides the obvious be more careful. I can't really help it, i just run into things etc. The wires get stretched and the sound stops or the mic stops working or both.

Coil the wire up and put a zip tie around it. If the cable is large enough it'll stay together.
