1. A headset for a mobile electronic device, comprising:
a neck-wearable housing having a generally U-shape with an electrical connector attached thereto;
two in-ear earphones;
two cords, each connected at one end to a corresponding in-ear earphone and connected at its other end to the electrical connector; and
at least one noise reduction microphone array disposed on the mobile electronic device,
wherein the two cords are mechanically connected to the neck-wearable housing, and points of connection of the cords to the neck-wearable housing are in close proximity to each other and form a dorsal cord connection node, and
wherein the two cords are also mechanically connected to each other in sections between the in-ear earphones and the dorsal cord connection node to form a suboccipital cord connection node at the connection point.
