Design student Lee Washington, sick of tangled earbuds (as we all are), created a way to make things easier. The separated cables leading to the individual earbuds can be zipped together, much like a resealable Ziploc bag.

We have seen this idea before, but only in concept form (and really more aesthetic than practical). Unfortunately, while consolidating the earbuds into one long cable may help the situation, one cord can still get awfully tangled. The two best solutions? There's the One True Way to tie earbuds together, and the more artsy business card method. Still, we wouldn't say no to a pair of Shures with this zipper implemented. [Lee Washington via Reddit]
