Snapbuds: the headphone detangler system

We’ve all been there: you take your headphones out of your pocket to listen to some tunes, only to find they’ve tangled themselves into a ball. Cue a few minutes trying to detangle them.

Snapbuds is a neat solution to this problem. It’s a series of nine magnets that you place along the headphone cord. Wrap your headphones around your hand or phone to store them. Then just pull them apart and they’ll unravel, with nary a tangle in sight.

There’s also an anchor that hooks your earphones to the auxiliary plug. Again, this stops them getting tangled.

Because of the magnets, you can also clip your headphones to hooks, to your head, or to anything you like to keep them out of harm’s way. Always misplacing your headphones? Stick them to the fridge, computer, or lamp. Whatever suits you.

The magnets are so strong, you can dangle your phone from a lamppost while you stretch. Handy when you’re out running.

If you support a team or a cause, you can have the logo emblazoned on the Snapbuds. Or you can pick from 12 colours. There are all sorts of packs available, including extras like phone cases and different sizes. Check out the Indiegogo page for the full range.

They start at just $9 (£6) and will ship in June. It’s already passed its funding goal and still has 42 days to go.
