zipbuds

Untangling your earbuds is an inevitability that everyone deals with on a daily basis. Your current earbuds of choice might be connected to the greatest $400 personal media device ever, but that doesn’t fit the tangled mess. You could go the bluetooth route, but most of those are bulky and battery draining. Now you can stick with earbuds – and cut the tangled mess – with Zipbuds. The concept is relatively simple (earbuds worked into a zipper) and executed perfectly. Both sides of the functional zipper house the cables so they never get tangled. Each of the five different color sets has Kevlar braided nylon cabling (cable resistance), a gold plated audio jack (they say audio quality, we say bling bling), and three different ear tip sizes. Unfortunately, there’s no mic/remote so you’re just going to have to sext instead of talking on the phone.
