LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – The CES iLounge is jam packed with a cornucopia of iPhone headphones, all with their own little trick or gimmick to make them standout. A lot of them try to solve the problem of tangled headphone wires, and then best one I’ve seen so far are Zipbuds.
Like almost every other headphone manufacturer at CES, Zipbuds makes headphones with big puffy earpieces that can pump out some loud bass. Zipbuds also has a lot of celebrity endorsements and all that jazz. But what sets Zipbuds’ product apart, is that you can zip your headphone wires together to make everything tangle free. It’s simple, and clever, and works really well.
While at the Zipbuds booth, I took the Select headphones for a spin and was pretty impressed with the sound quality and usefulness of the zip cables. You can cinch them up close to your neck so they’re not flopping around when you’re running, or you can unzip them so they have more movement.
The zipper cables on each set of Zipbud headphones are interchangeable allowing you to customize your look in the future. Zipbuds plans to release special zip cables later this year that will ad more flair to your headphones (they said they’re releasing gold cables soon, along with others). Plus, if you don’t like headphones and want earbuds instead they got those too.
