An award-winning range of tangle-free earphones and headphones worn by Ellen DeGeneres, NBA stars and Olympic basketballers has hit Australian shelves. Zipbuds, innovators of the original tangle-free, zip-up earbuds and headphones, uses signature cabling that works and looks like the zippers on a tracksuit, meaning they can be zipped up and down and will not get tangled, caught or pulled out of the ears like other tangle-free accessories. Unlike existing tangle-free alternatives, the zip cabling means Zipbuds does not need to make allowances that affect sound quality or appearance, push the product price up, or resort to wiring or fettuccine-like cords to prevent tangling like some of its competitors.
Zipbuds has already won the Travel and Leisure Design Award 2012 for “Best Personal Gadget” and was named one of the most promising start-ups by Business Week. With products available online and at City Beach priced from $39.95 to $249.95, Zipbuds is set to be a popular option for gifting. The Zipbuds earphones are made using military grade Aramid and Maeden tinsel technology and have form-fitting earbuds that come in a variety of sizes, sound quality and clarity, and eye-catching colours: black, blue, green and pink.
Sinergy Group Director Steve Macdonald said the success overseas and the wide-ranging appeal of the product meant Zipbuds were shaping up to be a Christmas essential. “Zipbuds are a foolproof gift idea for many different types of people, especially teenagers, music lovers and fitness fanatics,” Mr Macdonald said. “I challenge everyone to give Zipbuds a chance and experience just how much better the quality, look and useability is compared with the other supposedly tangle-free alternatives.” Multi-platinum award winning producer and songwriter Harvey Mason Jr. worked with Zipbuds to develop sound quality in the entire range. “In a world where fashion matters, Zipbuds definitely brings style to the studio,” Mr Mason Jr. said.
