This is a personal earphone assembly comprised of a flexible, elongate tube having open ends and a central lumen therethrough. Earphones are disposed at each open end of the tube, each earphone having a neck projecting therefrom and a wire passing from the neck, through the lumen, to a central aperture in the tube. In a stereophonic embodiment, the earphone wires run parallel from the central lateral aperture to a plug adapted to engage a stereo jack on a signal source. In a monaural embodiment, the earphone wires join a single double-strand lead to a mono jack. Lateral slits are provided adjacent the open ends of the tube for receipt of the temple ends of a pair of eyeglasses. The portions of the tube between the lateral apertures and the open ends wrap over and around the forward portions of a user’s ear, and the earphones lodge in the outer ear canal. The assembly may also be worn without eyeglasses. In an alternative embodiment, a bead slidingly mounted on a doubled portion of the tube allows adjustment for a snug fit. In yet another embodiment, the end portions of the elongate tube have a memory wire disposed therein, for bending the end portions into a configuration for optimally fitting the earphones within the outer ear canal of a user.

Disclosed is a high-tension thread fastening structure for an eyeglasses frame having a lens held by stretching a length of high-tension thread around the lower sector of the lens to push the lens against the upper sector of rim. The length of high-tension thread has a single knot formed at each end, each knot being caught by each end of the upper sector of rim, and being terminated with a spherical end, thereby preventing the loosening or unbinding of the fastening. Alternatively the length of high-tension thread has first and second knots formed at each end, the first knot being caught by each end of the upper sector of rim, thereby preventing the loosening or unbinding of the fastening by using the second knot as a backup for the first knot.
