Nothing rattles our chains like being interrupted from a music high. We invest in super high-quality sound systems so we can chill out in our apartments after a long day of work and lose ourselves in music—until our sonic heaven is interrupted by a buzzing hum from the speakers, quickly followed by a text message tone from our cell phone. Ugh!

So how do you stop that buzz? An easy solution is to turn of your cell.

But if you're not the type to cut the communication umbilical cord, we found a simple and inexpensive solution that will keep you connected and buzz-free at the same time: Rest your cell on an electrostatic shielding bag!

You can find one wrapped around a hard drive, router or other inside-a-computer electrical devices (The bags are designed to protect sensitive electronic components from electrostatic during handling, shipping, and assembly). All you have to do is rest your cell on top and you can still receive calls and texts while enjoying hum-free music—even right next to the speaker!
