And they’re really bad at it.
That’s the worst magic trick ever. Tangled earbuds are a pain in the butt…
There are plenty of guides out there to avoid getting them all tangled inside your pocket, but in all honesty, ain’t nobody got time for that!
This is pretty much the biggest reason things like retractable headphones and the tangle-resistant Zipbuds are so popular, even if the sound quality is not as good as pair of big size headphones. There is also plenty of earbud wrappers out there, like the Nest, but let’s face it, nobody will take the time to wrap the cable around an object when they’re in a hurry.
