Jay Johnson has invented one of the most innovative gadgets on the market today, the CordCruncher Headphone. Basically, what this retractable headphone cable sleeve does is it replaces the unpleasant traditional cord tangles of headphones and allows its user to wear it on his or her wrist.

The elastic zip of the CordCruncher Headphone can be pulled down up to the user’s preferred cable length, which can be exposed from 16in to 3.5ft. After using the earphones, the user can simply zip up. Three color options include iGizmo White, Pearl Blue, and Rocket Red.

Furthermore, connecting the top of the CordCruncher Headphone to the jack can form a wristband. Its right and left wires, which are held in a stretchy sheath, can be worn as a necklace, as well. Thus, it is not easy to lose the gadget.
