ZipBuds: Tangle Resistant Earbuds – CES 2012
One of the most annoying things to do is try and keep your headphones from getting tangled in your bag. In the four years I’ve been going to CES, I have seen many different “de-tangle” options. But is this one going to be coup de grâce?
If you are a zipper geek, then ZipBuds might be the headphones to get. The headphones simply “zip up” at the spot where your earphones wires would split off to each ear. When you have the headphones on your ears, or if you are taking them off to put away, just pull up the zipper and the cords will come together. You can then put the earbuds in your bag.
ZipBuds start at $39.99. They come in multiple colors, and you can also get replacement earbuds in multiple colors, too. You can also check out ZipBuds L.A.B. select, L.A.B. Choice and L.A.B. prime series of over-the-ear headphones with 38 mm to 50 mm drivers for that sound you desire.
