Headphone Cord Tangles a “Sinch”
By Jesse Emspak
September 13, 2011 – Tangled headphone cords. We’ve all had them, and they are a real annoyance. Who wants to spend time untangling cords in order to listen to your music player?
Sinch has a solution. The eponymous product is basically a strap with two magnets and a hole. It’s designed to let the headphone cord wrap around the device in question (an iPod in the pictures, but presumably other similarly-shaped devices with metal backing would work too) without tangling quite as much, and the magnets at least are simple, and don’t wear out eventually the way velcro does. It’s also a little easier to maneuver than twist-ties.
All that said, many commenters here noted that you could make something similar by folding over a piece of duct tape and punching two holes i it. But it’s nowhere near as cool-looking. The Sinch goes for $15.99 from the company’s site.
