For those people in the UK, this insert also fits the Marks and Spencer 'Strong Mint' tins perfectly as well. Works really well to keep my headphones tidy!

This is pretty awesome. I am going to try with the newer version earbuds (with the lightning connector) and let you know if they work with those as well.

Added a new model.. "NewEarbudTIn" which hopefully fits the new version of the apple earbuds which use the lightning charger. Let me know how it fits! like I said I dont have these, so any feedback would be great!

Thank you! If you want to wait a while, I believe I am going to go ahead and try to upload another version for the updated apple earbuds. Others have already asked, so I may as well try to make a model that works for that as well.. Should have it posted here in the next coupe hours.

Hi,

Thanks so much for the new version of these. This is great design. I found that the ear piece fit snugly in the little holes, and was able to wrap the cable around, but the lightning connector was a little too big to fit in the hole provided. The connector is both a hair longer than the hole, and a hair wider.

Just uploaded "LightningEarbudTin2".. made some changes where you mentioned. Hope this works. Once again please let me know if it doenst. Thanks

Hey thanks. I tried it. It looks like the part where the white part of the plug sits would need to be just slightly wider, but everything else looks perfect. The lengths look great, and the part where the end of the plug (with the contacts) sits is perfect. I measured the plastic base part with a Garfield ruler, and it looks like it's about 1 cm wide, and your part is maybe 8mm wide at that part?

I lost my calipers, if I find them I can take dimensions of the rest of the part and send them to you.

Thanks!!

"LightningEarbudTin3" Widened the area for the plastic base of the plug. I appreciate all the help! Might just have to finally upgrade my phone to see for myself and keep you from burning through a roll of filament! lol

It fits now. Thanks!

Awesome! Thanks for all the help! If you get a chance and can post a picture that would be great! That way I can refine any areas that may need it! Thanks again I appreciate it!

Here ya go. Now I need to eat some more mints.

Would it work with the new generation of apple ear bud that plug into the charging port?

This is an awesome idea. is this universal for any earbuds or just Apple?

Thank you! I made them for my Apple earbuds, haven’t tried them with any other brand. If you could give it a try with another brand that would be great! Maybe have an area in the description which tells all the ones it has worked with.
