There is little more distracting to a pleasurable audio experience than having to constantly untangle wires. The thin cords preferred by earbud manufacturers because of their lightweight quality are often delicate, and easily prone to breakage and tangling.
Bill Murray really put this in a nutshell with his famous line, “How to tie the strongest knot ever: 1) Put some headphones in your pocket 2) Wait one minute. Ta da!”
Many have sought to unravel our tangle frustrations. And yet most of the options for managing cables and preventing tangles fall way short when it comes to earbud cords. Coiling, taping, loose knotting, and binder clips can be useful in some situations but rarely fit the bill while we’re on the go.
A host of companies have tried to offer solutions for sorting out our twisted cables by adding accessories and gizmos. We can buy all manner of cord organizers and earphone holders in a jumble of decorative or plain shapes and sizes, made in all kinds of materials from leather to silicone.
This usually means our having to carry yet another item when we really want to be hands-free. And we’re likely as ever to lose more than a few of these tiny holders along the way.
Cord breakages are one of the worst ways we get stopped in our tracks. The tiny sheaths of plastic, rubber and thin copper wires that make up our earphone cables certainly put up with lots of stress, especially during outdoor activities. Curling and twisting cables to fine-tune our listening experience while we’re walking or jogging can cause irreparable damage and untold trips to the store to buy replacements.
How to protect earphone wires while enjoying music on a run, a workout or walking was, for me, a frustrating almost insoluble puzzle until I came across a company called MyBuds who make handmade wrapped earbuds, cables and gifts from their home studio in Huntington Beach, California.
