I'm probably in the minority but if you know me, it probably doesn't shock you that I have a HEADPHONES DRAWER. It used to be nice and neatly organized but now I'n afraid it's just a mess of product and cables and chords.
At work the situation's not much better -- especially because my desk isn't a huge space and when I'm swamped, without time to clean up after myself, it just becomes a mess in there. And frankly, it's not good for my V-Modas -- I use my absolute most prized pair of headphones at the office.
Thankfully, a very simple but brilliant piece of plastic is about the solve a lot of problems.
The LOOP is made of 100% recyclable polycarbonate (granted, that is not ordinary plastic) and for less than $20, you can own THREE of them. It's of no surprise to me that it was conceived and created by an architect, Scott Rodwin, who went through several designs to ensure his device was the best earbud holder on the market. He wanted it to be the easiest and quickest to use, most attractive to look at and easy to hold. As it turned out, it also manages to be both elegant and fun, inexpensive and durable.
The LOOP is simple to use. Wind on. Wind off. The perfect solution for any earbuds and the almost-perfect solution for detachable cables (I'll explain!) -- especially perfect for those earbuds that come with Apple products. Slides nicely into your jeans' pockets, your purse, your laptop bag or fits perfectly into the bottom of a car cup-holder and protects your buds from damage.
I don't use earbuds 90% of the time but I still have a need for this. And most of the headphones I use have detachable cables so there's still plenty of usefulness here. Just be careful if you have a 3.5mm 45 or 90 degree earphone jack.
It won't fit into the LOOP hole. Make it the side of the cable you put into the ridges. When you're holding the product, that will make sense. And if you have no idea what this means, you probably use earbuds and should just declare me a total snob. ;)
But COME ON! POOF! Problem solved. Look how tidy this is!
Whether you spend a lot or a little on earphones, your money is your money, man. If you don't take care of your things, you have to spend MORE money to replace your things more often, right? And headphones get a lot of wear and tear. They get thrown into bags and backpacks, onto desks, into drawers...
Watch this 38 second video that sums it all up and then enter the give away below! I'm going to send TWO of you a LOOP of your own!
Disclosure: These craft devils sent me three loops to try. I tried one and decided to send two of them away to two of you. You're welcome.
