Since I always use the Stereo element with the Telinga, I have little 
problem locating without removing the headphones. With mono it would be 

If I need to remove them I generally just push them to one side rather 
than removing them all the way. I also have a headlamp on, and it would 
get real awkward to get the headphones all the way on and off without 
catching the headlamp too.

Also, one handing headphones on and off puts a fair amount of strain on 
their joints. Not a big problem when it was all metal, but so much of it 
is plastic now.
