Drop The Beat, Not Your Buds

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.  Props are made of polypropylene and woven nylon cord.  They are 26″ long, but the length can be adjusted.  They won’t damage your earbud cables, because they have a “soft grip”.  They are available in pink, blue, gray, or black for $5.99.

    I guess it would be too easy to make it in white???

    @David The website mentioned white, but they aren’t currently for sale. Maybe everybody else wanted white, too. 😉

    I had a Sony Network Walkman that had something almost exactly like this 8 years ago. Bose earphones used to come with a neck cord too. I still use it occasionally. I’ll bet there are others I don’t know about too. Nothing really new here- these are just more universal.
