You may have grown accustomed to having your earbuds tangled, but there are better ways of storing your earphones without them always ending up in knots. All of these ideas will keep your earphones tangle-free and will probably make them last a bit longer, because earbuds tend to break easily, given the abuse they suffer.
1. TidyTilt: This smart little cover looks like an Apple Smart Cover that's been hit with a shrink ray, but it does more than just protect the back of your iPhone. It will help you keep your earphone cord tidy, and will allow you to mount your iPhone on any magnetically-responsive surface.
2. Sumneeds Tail Line: This Korean product will protect your earphone jack and will allow you to wrangle your cord at the same time. It comes as a whale, fox, or swan tail.
3. Old Earbud Pouches: We've gone through quite a few earbuds through the years, and some of them came with nice pouches. These pouches make it easy to keep your earbuds safe and untangled.
