Another Shot in the Battle Against Tangled Earbuds

Next to the back door, there’s a cabinet with a drawer full of earbuds.  No matter how carefully I place a pair in the drawer, they’re guaranteed to be in a Gordian knot the next time I need them.

I swear that earbuds are sentient and malevolent.  The moment you put them down, they start twisting and curling and tangling on their own.  The dog has become accustomed to waiting an extra ten minutes for her walk as I sort out the earbud situation.

Here’s a solution from a company called Jabra. The Rox Wireless earbuds have a couple of magnets that allow you to make them into a necklace when you’re not using them, freeing you from shoving them in your pocket. Business Insider has a review.

    Urbanears earbuds also click together to make it a necklace. I also find the material on the cord more handbag and pocket friendly 🙂
