  1. Intriguing, but limited in application. You would only be able to use it in static situations: sitting at desk with laptop /PC, etc. A magnetic connection wouldn’t be strong enough to be used universally in mobile settings.

  2. Desktop PC is exactly what I’d want it for. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten up from a computer and had earbuds yanked out of my head. Not painful, but uncomfortable

  3. Hm. Have you considered using a 1/8th inch extension cable? You could secure it with velcro under the desk, then plug your phones into that. If you got up, the velcro releasing would be a “soft stop “.
