Two Simple Solutions For Tangled Earphone Cords

Is it bad (or over the top geeky) that earphone cord holders excite me? I guess I'm guilty of always having cords that get twisted, knotted and end up in a big messy ball. Who needs some elaborate contraption to keep them organized when there are some great tiny yet effective inventions on the market. Two of my favorites include the
Sombrero Spools and the adorable bunny and cube cord organizers, and now I've got two more to add to the list!

The Belkin 3-Pack TuneTie ($14) lets you feed your cable through the figure eight and use only the length you need while the Earbud Yo-Yo keeps your cord nicely wound. The Earbud Yo-Yo, which you can personalize with various designs, will debut (with a price tag) at CES in January.

I picked up the Jam Jacket from Best Buy yesterday, listed at $14.99 and rang up for only $4.99. It is a rubber jacket for the iPod Touch that has a cord keeper in the back that I really enjoy. I never had a better solution than just wrapping my cord around and around my iPod 5G. So, I'm really happy to have found the Jam Jacket.

I'm using the technique that you introduced a couple of months back. The one where you hold your earbuds with the ring and middlefinger, then twirl the cable around the other two fingers, like an eight, and finalle wrap the end of the cord around that "8" It works fine for me and I don't have to spend money ::Yeah::

I love my retractables. I have a set from Brookstone that works well for me when I am in the office or on an elliptical machine. The only time I don't like it is when I am actually running because of the weighted retract coil hitting me on every stride.
