Let's get this out of the way:  I cannot wear earbuds.  Well, I can, but I simply choose not to.  I'm an over-the-ear kind of headphone fan.  But, tiny earbuds that don't even have a cord?  Let's see what this is about. The SmartOMI BOOTS is a set of Bluetooth ear buds that don't require [...]

I prefer earbuds to headphones because they are smaller and easier to carry around than a full-sized pair of earphones. While I like them better earphones, I know I'm not alone in having issues with earbuds falling out of my ears. If you're a fan of Apple's earpods which have come packaged with the iPhone, [...]

Stop me if you have heard this one before. You reach into your pocket, bag, or purse to pull out your earbuds and you come out with a wad of tangled and knotted up cable. Sound familiar? That's how the idea for The Loop (earbud anti-tangling device) came about. Note: Images can be clicked to [...]

When I picked up my first pair of Apple earbuds, I was very disappointed in how they kept falling out of my ears. Then Earpods came out, and since they had a different shape, I thought they would work better, but still, I had no luck. Sprng offered to have their Sprng clips for the [...]

Noise canceling earbuds are great for blocking out unwanted noise around us so we can listen to our tunes without distraction. But there are times when no distraction is not a good thing. Like while riding a bike, walking, running, etc. Airbudz, a successfully funded Kickstarter project, can turn your in-ear earphones into earphones that [...]

This little invention from Quirky is so simple, it makes you wonder "why didn't I think of that?"  Props fits around your neck and makes sure your earbuds don't fall to the ground when you pull them out of your ears.  Simple!  And a bit like those eyeglasses holders I've seen dangling around peoples' necks.
