Headphone Cord Tangles a "Sinch"
Tangled headphone cords. We've all had them, and they are a real annoyance. Who wants to spend time untangling cords in order to listen to your music player?
Sinch has a solution. The eponymous product is basically a strap with two magnets and a hole. It's designed to let the headphone cord wrap around the device in question (an iPod in the pictures, but presumably other similarly-shaped devices wold work too) without tangling quite as much, and the magnets at least are simple, and don't wear out eventually the way velcro does. It's also a little easier to maneuver than twist-ties.
All that said, many commenters here noted that you could make something similar by folding over a piece of duct tape and punching two holes i it. But it's nowhere near as cool-looking. The Sinch goes for $15.99 from the company's site.
