Headphones Life Hack

As unfortunate and angering as it may be, it seems that headphones of all kinds (especially Apple brand) inevitably tangle in the worst way possible at the worst time possible, but never fear because right now, I am going to share with you one of the best life hacks to ever grace the Internet with its presence. If you are tired of your headphones tangling the very instant that you set them down, then this hack is for you! I always find myself pondering things like, “is there another way?” or “HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?” or maybe, “what are the best headphones?” Though I ask these questions, I know the solution is not found in any certain brand of headphones, and certainly not iPhone headphones. Okay, Okay, so there is one other solution. Wireless headphones and bluetooth headphones are definitely tangle free… or are they? I will bet they can find some way to do it, since it seems to be in the nature of headphones. In fact, the solution is found in a very common and very cheap office supply. Can you guess what it is? If you guessed “binder clip,” then you are correct! Congratulations. You can probably figure this out yourself. Go on… get out! Binder clips can actually be used for a lot of handy little life hack type tricks. I don’t think anyone really knows what binder clips are intended to be used for (clipping binders together?). The world may never know. I do know that they are more fun to play with than most toys. Obviously, Legos have them beat, but I have seen the two products work nicely together. While this might not be the safest life hack for your headphones, neither is letting them become hopelessly tangled. So, for those of you who may argue that wrapping the cables this way is bad, just think of what you are going to be saving them from. Yes, ideally the headphones would be placed in a designated headphones case. Some of the higher end headphone companies such as Bose headphones make these type of headphones cases. If you are in need of a quick and cheap fix for your headphone tangle troubles, then this binder clip life hack ought to suit your needs! All you need is one medium size binder clip and a pair of headphones. Thanks for watching, and enjoy this new life!
