Tangled Earbuds


Nothing beats relaxing in style – and music can certainly help! So what could be better than taking tiny orbs connected by some thin cabling and JAMMING them in your ears to hear the sound? It’s a one-of-a-kind experience, of course! Just, try not to puncture an eardrum during all that. Wouldn’t want to damage the equipment, now would we?

Problem is, when you’re done with these small implants, what do you do with them? Unplug them from your device of choice and ball them up in some fashion, right? During that, you assume that it’s completely harmless – I mean, they’re just sitting there lazily, doing nothing of importance (much like a certain blog author who insists that he writes on a semi-daily basis)! What dilemma could they ever present?

The very next day, you arrive back at the fabled spot of electronic discard, ready to use these earpieces for another bout of stress-relieving. But lo! for this contraption now has more tangles than an adolescent girl’s bedhead! More mats than a shaggy dog’s fur! More ties than a successful businessman! More knots than a fast-moving sea vessel!

And so you take the next two, three, six minutes, assuming a role as a reverse Boy Scout, trying your darndest to get your gear back in working, streamlined order, thinking all the while that there must be a better way.

Come to think of it — why isn’t there one?

  1. You can actually buy little plastic clips from various music/electronic relailers (or online) to wind these around to keep in un-knotty order.Similarly,J-shaped cords tend to tangle a lot less than the Y-shaped ones.For a REAL tangle-nightmare,my vote is with Christmas tree lights.Each year when taking down my tree I wind them neatly around a long tube to avoid tangles and each following year when I get them out of the box again they’re a total mess.Must be the Underpants Gnomes(see South Park) on their day off.Now,THAT’S annoying.
