The cord from ear to ear is very lengthy at 22 inches, that's why it's great that they included the pass through puck and clip to help control it. I actually like the length because I can have one on my right ear and put the other side in my shirt pocket and move about without it pulling out.
@Nhi you can easily pull it slightly out of your ear and still hear it. I actually have to do this when I'm at work because I have to be aware of my surroundings. They still sound great, but I'm deaf so i always want louder haha.
