Corey, I had to both laugh and agree with your "I use an extension for
freedom of movement although I sometimes trip over the
headphone extension cord...Grrrr". Haha, describes my situation to a T.
For a very brief period, I tried a lightweight cable retractor mounted to
the ceiling to keep the headphone extension off the floor, but it ended up
continuously tugging at my head instead - even worse than tripping. So
back to occasionally tripping... and moving slowly and deliberately when
the headphones are on.
