I bought a mobile microphone retractor device that is sold for truckers. I
bought it at Dayton. I haven't used it yet but would have to search for it.
I assume it is still available somewhere. You can also look for the small
retractors used for key sets that are sold at Key shops.

I've recently bought a set of Yamaha CM500 headphones for contesting, which
are terrific. The one problem, paradoxically, is that the cord is too long.
I don't want to cut it if I can avoid it, because there are times when the
extra length could be pleasant. However, it occurs to me there must be some
sort of spring-loaded reel device used for cord management or some other
related purpose that could be put to use here.
The cord itself is very light and flexible, so it wouldn't require much
