Zipbuds Tangle-Resistant Earbuds Get a Makeover, Start Shipping

It’s amazing how much a design can change in a year.

Zipbuds

Back in January, we showed you a different kind of earbud that promised to prevent tangles. This was a great idea, because tangled cords are the number 1 cause for destroyed earbuds* (due to the owner getting frustrated and just breaking them). Unfortunately the early prototype Zipbuds that we saw were bulky and ugly. I know that I wouldn’t have wanted to wear these, or even try to stuff them into my pocket. They may have solved one problem, but created others.

Well it’s almost a year later and the company is now shipping their Zipbuds. What’s more is that they look a lot different than before. Gone is that ugly rubber strip connected to the zipper. They’ve managed to actually run the cable inside the zipper itself. Shipping in five different colors for $40 (USD) each, I’d say these are worth looking into.
