    I've never used my iphone as an ipod as wherever I am, my speakers are not with me. Putting them just in the trousers and then putting them in the ears is some what unclean. Do you have your ear speakers with you all the time?

    I store my earphones in a MF pouch inside my pockets. I have a hard case but it is bulky.

    Not many voters here.

    OP: You should change the title from "ear speakers" to earphones are they are more commonly known. Maybe the term speakers make people think you are talking about external speakers and they don't enter the thread since not many people use external speakers.

    I have the Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic... These come with a nice little case that i pop them in when not in use.... not too bulky and keeps them nice and safe and clean.

    I voted for rarely only due to the fact that they are for my iPhone.... in the days when i used to carry my iPod everywhere i would have voted for all the time.

    I use the case that came with my ie8's. Its good because you can store different tips and also the tool i need to adjust the bass on the headphones!!

    I rarely use ear phones but in that rare case I do, I carry them in my pant or jacket pockets. I don't care about hygiene, when I'd like to listen to some music, I'd like to grab them on the go and not going through my bag for a minute holding me and everyone else up.

    I could keep them under the sweater or shirt like a security guard, but I don't like walking around like I'm an undercover cop.

    Before the iPhone I always carried a regular phone and an iPod Nano plus earphones.

    Now I only eliminated the ipod nano and continue to carry the phone plus earphones. One less item to carry :D

    When I am out and about (at home) my Apple earbuds stay in my car and I use them for talking on the phone when driving.

    When I travel (away from home) the Apple earbuds get rolled up and put in a pocket in my backpack and my custom in-ears get used 95% for music/movies.

    they're always around my neck.

    if they're not in-use, i keep them in their case (UE customs come with a really nice hard case), which goes in my pocket or, if i'm carrying it, my laptop bag. but generally once they come out, they stay out and around my neck when not in use. i'll only bother to put them back in the case if i'm pretty sure i wont be using them for the rest of the day.
