Many people get troubles with earbuds lines and headsets lines because they are very easily get messy. It also usually takes people a long time to untie those lines. We find it very important to have a design that will not get people into those troubles anymore.
It took a long time to figure out how the final actual form of the earbuds should be. After many times of prototype making, we finally discovered that it would be the best, just as the pictures shown.
