The Zipbuds SLIDE are a pair of earphones that tackle the age-old problem of getting your earphones tangled up in your zipper. The earphones are designed to be tangle-resistant, and feature a zipper that doesn't use the regular toothy mechanism seen in most zippers.

These earphones use a friction-free slider and ridge-and-groove cables reminiscent of the sealing mechanism found in many Ziploc bags. This design allows users to separate cables or bring them together by moving the slider up and down, thereby preventing annoying tangles.

As far as the actual audio performance is concerned, the Zipbuds SLIDE feature an in-line remote and a noise-filtering microphone that allows for track control and hands-free calling.

At $49.99, the Zipbuds SLIDE earphones represent great value due to their combination of audio performance and pure physical convenience.
