Apple EarPod Wrapper

How do you wrap them properly?

The instructions are included. To reprise:
Start the wrap by dropping the EarPods in their respective holes (they only fit one way). Take the cables down under the top lip and to the left. Hook them into the left slot, up and over the EarPods, down through the top right slot and continue though the bottom slot. The mike should now lie across the back of the wrapper. Bring the cables down through the opposite slot and wrap the cables to the right and around the spool.
When the cable reaches its end, the plug should be near the last slot on the rear. Hook the cable into the slot and snap the plug into its holder.
Remove the plug by pushing on the metal end, grabbing it at the cable end, and pulling it out of its holder..

I'm glad it's working for you. The loose clip is due to the variations from one machine to another - on my machine the clip comes out a bit tight.

Apologies, must have been wrapping it wrong...suddenly it is the right length - Doh!

Printed one out, but the cable length is wrong for lining up the plug to the last slot. Perhaps cable length varies? Clip was loose on the plug as well.

Any plans to make a version compatible with the Lightning Connector version of the EarPods?

Sorry, not at this time. See my answer to dansgoldberg, below.

No problem. Thanks

Will this work for lightning EarPods for iPhone 7?

I don't have an iPhone 7 so I can't try them out, but it looks as if the EarPods themselves are the same and would fit into the recesses and the lightning connector end can be tucked under the last turn of the cable.

I can't get my headphone jack to line up with the holder

Yikes. Those wires look pretty distressed near the bottom of the buds, and on either side of the volume controls.

For years I've been using earbud wrappers that have identical turns to those that this one demands and haven't noticeably harmed a set of earbuds yet. The cables will turn that much without putting any real stress on them, and even pulling the cables tight hasn't hurt any earbuds yet. No guarantees, but I haven't seen a problem.

I usually lose my Earbuds and have to buy a new pair long before they wear out, but that exact spot seems like the most common point of failure for laptop/iPod charge cables that I've had.

The little case that came with my latest set of buds seemed to be designed to maximize the radius of those turns, so it seemed to be like that was Apple acknowledging that weakness.

If it's working for you, that's great! I am a big fan of practical designs like this that don't require support material!
