Necessity is the mother of invention. This one was sorely needed. How many times have you had to deal with tangled headphones? I hear ya, too many. Lee Washington was sick of tangled headphone wires, so he did something about it.

He created a way for the two wires to stick to each other when not in use, sort of like how a ziplock bag works. When the headphones are not in use, you can just zip them together. It’s the little things like this that make our lives so much easier.
