Surely I’m not the only one that has to untangle headphone cords on a regular basis. Or maybe I’m the last person on the planet making the full-time move to wireless Bluetooth earbuds? Regardless, this $10 solution called the Nest Earbud Protector that I found when reading Gear Diary ought to have a large potential audience.
The concept is simple: Place your ‘buds in the flexible silicone product and then wrap up the cords. Since the low-cost solution is easy to bend, it folds in on itself to protect your headphones and the cord. And when you need you ‘buds, you just pull them out and the cords follow with nary a tangle.
I’ve seen a number of similar solutions before, but few actually protect the headphones; most just manage the cords, so I’ll likely invest the ten-spot.
