Triple C Designs Smart Retracto-Budz

Tangled earbuds are the daily bane of our existence. No matter how carefully we wrap them up, they’re always a hot tangled mess when we retrieve them from our bags. We finally found a solution with the aptly-named Smart Retracto-budz. This ingenious earbud-tamer features a retractable mechanism that stores wires neatly and compactly.

Poor sound quality
Purchased

Lovely design and print. Was looking forward to keeping it in my purse. But when I compared it to the new design iPhone earbuds, it couldn't compare in audio quality. The cords are thinner and flat to make coiling easier, which I suspect cause the poor audio. And I'm not even an audiophile/techno-geek! This is actually an iPod earbuds, and not iPhone. There is a mic/button on the left side cord, but no volume control. I found another cord coiler, so this is now my back-up or spare only...

Bought them for a gift...but they're mine now!
Purchased

These little ear buds are comfy and very convenient. I love the magnets to keep them attached without ruining my top. And the retractability is so much more convenient than wrapping around a separate gadget.

Disasterous
Purchased

Was super excited to get these. However, they were flawed upon arrival. The "retracto" part did not work at all. Disappointing because they are a good concept.

Cute, clever, and functional.
Purchased

These earbuds with built-in retractor have been great to have on car trips, vacation, and around the house. The sound quality is fine but most importantly, the cord doesn't get mashed up or tangled. I wish I'd had these when I routinely rode the bus! They would make a great gift for just about anyone.

Love

I loved these! I have trouble with earbuds sometimes; they often don't fit my ears properly and hurt, but these were great. The design is cool, and I love that they are retractable, so the cords don't get tangled up in my purse.

Really disappointed!
Purchased

I love the idea of this product and even enjoyed the reality of it for a short time but a few weeks into using it, it rendered itself completely useless. There came a point (with nothing beyond normal use) when it just no longer retracted on one end, which makes the whole idea kind of pointless. I give the idea an A and the execution an F.

YAY!!

Yay!! No more tangled headphones!! Super smart and so cute too. I love the floral ones. Now, if only every cord came with a retraction feature....
