Anyone who knows the pain of reaching into their bag to find their headphones in a knot will greatly appreciate these special tangle-free headphones.

These 'ONE-THIRD' in-ear headphones designed by Tien-sheng Huang use a combination of magnetic force and a clever travel-friendly shape. A set of special magnets actually connects each earphone together with the audio jack into one handy geometric shape that also manages to streamline their design. By employing these subtle design changes, the everyday in-ear headphone becomes both transportable and tangle free.

By employing the use of magnets, these headphones are able to eliminate the need for clips or ties, used to keep headphone cords in check. The 'ONE-THIRD' is so well designed that it was also the recipient of the 2015 Red Dot Awards design concept award.
