Frustrated Consumer Designs a Dead Simple Headphone Wire Management Solution
A Lifehacker reader, frustrated with every headphone wire management solution in the market, decided to design his own dead simple solution that I dare say rivals any professionally designed consumer solution! I do wonder why designers can’t seem to get away from reinterpreting the dog bone, fish bone or donut?
Charles Kim found that by reusing a vinyl badge clip, (found on those old conference badge tags) he could keep his headphone wires cleanly wrapped up, knot and tangle free. Furthermore, this metal clip also allows the device to be attached to objects like a shirt or bag, so that the wrapped headphones can be easily accessible if necessary.
What a wonderfully clean and simple solution to an age-old problem! Has it been that long since portable music players were introduced?
