Earbud-Integrated Phone Cases

The TurtleCell iPhone Case Ensures You Never Lose Your Headphones

— July 7, 2013 — Tech
Ensuring that you never forget your earbuds again, the TurtleCell iPhone Case has built-in headphones. TurtleCell simultaneously solves the problem of tangled and lost headphones by building your personal audio system straight into the case. The earbuds are stored snugly inside the case when not in use and conveniently extend out when you feel like some music. The in-case buds extend 4-feet so that anyone can use the case comfortably.

In addition to being convenient, the case also incorporates high quality sound technology. TurtleCell incorporates headphones that would traditionally retail for $30 to $40. All of this is stored in a protective case that is 3mm thinner than an OtterBox case and 7mm thinner than an EarGear case.

The TurtleCell is currently available on Kickstarter for the iPhone 5 and the iPod touch.
