I guess many years from now, when you regale tales of headphones to your grandkids, you would tell them of the day when headphones were no longer under the menace of a tangled cord – and this was not achieved through the clever implementation of Bluetooth connectivity, but rather, courtesy of the CordCruncher headphones, dubbed to be the first tangle-free headphones in the world. It is available as a pre-sale order on Kickstarter, and shipping is tipped to commence sometime in May. All that will happen only when the $20,000 goal is achieved, and with just a couple of weeks left to go (as at press time), this project has amassed a mere $3,445. Good luck, guys!

The design of the CordCruncher is not much to look at, as it makes the cords resemble a fat, juicy worm whenever you slip the elastic sleeve over your headphone’s cords. Capable of adjusting from 16″ to 3.5 feet, it might not be all that pretty, but I think it ought to be able to get the job done – and without the need for any batteries, too, unlike Bluetooth-powered headphones.
