Headphone cords: they're far from the gravest problem facing mankind today, but much like the common cold, they persistently annoy with no end in sight. At least we have a new, non-prescription pill, in the form of CordCrunchers.

Similar to Zipbuds, CordCrunchers are a simple headphone update that secures the cords in a more convenient way. The left and right wires are held in an elastic sheath that can be worn as a necklace or bracelet. With a simple pull, you control the length of exposed headphone wire, eliminating dangling excess.

You can expose anywhere from 16 inches to 3.5 feet of cord (40.6 cm to 1.07 m). When you're done, pull the cords through into the sheath, and toss them in your bag with no worries about opening up a tangled rat's nest of cordage.

Funds are currently being raised on Kickstarter, to take CordCrunchers to commercial production. If you pledge at least US$20, you will receive a pair once they're ready to roll.

CordCrunchers are apparently great for doing keg exercises at your local high school football stadium – and possibly workouts you actually do, too. Check 'em out below.

C.C. Weiss Upon graduating college with a poli sci degree, Chris toiled in the political world for several years. Realizing he was better off making cynical comments from afar than actually getting involved in all that mess, he turned away from matters of government and news to cover the things that really matter: outdoor recreation, cool cars, technology, wild gadgets and all forms of other toys. He's happily following the wisdom of his father who told him that if you find something you love to do, it won't really be work.   All articles by C.C. Weiss
