Budstrap

 

For those audiophiles who like to listen to music on the go without any of the loss in quality associated with bluetooth devices, a kickstarter project named BudStraps promises to improve headphone cable management.

The design consists of a soft strap which rests across the neck and and clips on either end which grab the headphone cords. This system keeps your earbuds tangle free and within easy reach, while also reducing the tension on your ears. Head past the break to see the BudStraps in action. 

For a pledge as small as $5, you can receive your own BudStrap in one of six colors when you back the project. So far, they’ve earned just over $3,000 and are hoping to reach $10,000 in the next 29 days. Head over to their Kickstarter to learn more.

Is it wrong of me to immediately associate anything with “bud” in its name with ganja now that Oregon has voted to legalize it?
Seriously I’m glad the opening shot shows somebody using these in a gym because earbuds on the road or trail are a bad idea, but something to keep them from bouncing out on the treadmill seems reasonable.

couldn’t you just design it as a headband so i can snap it back to hit your face to remind you to turn your music down so you can hear other people on the trail?

Some people listen to music some people incessantly stare at their computer. Get over it.

At the gym, fine; on the bike, not cool. When I see people riding bikes with earbuds or (no kidding) headphones, I want to say, “Hey, where’s the blindfold?” But of course, they wouldn’t hear me.

Seriously, if you’re into exercise get yourself some Bluetooth “buds”. The annoying wire problem solved.

Go buy a pack of bobby pins and clip your wire to the back of your jersey. Easy, cheap.

I just clip one bud off, and wrap the cord around my neck before putting the remaining one in my ear. No, it doesn’t strangle me. Not having the other one helps to avoid trouble with the law either, because law states that you can’t have both ears obstructed when operating a vehicle.

When I’m riding the trails at O dark thirty and there’s just me, the mule deer, and the coyotes – do you still get to be sanctimonious towards me if I listen to podcasts while I ride?

I have been riding with apples ear buds for MANY years and I can hear everything,no problems at all,thousands of miles day and night!As far as keeping my buds out of my pedals,I just run them under my shirt,but this here doesn’t look like a bad idea.

Cycling with headphones violates Rule #62. So, these are worthless for bikers.
