ONE-THIRD – A tangle-free solution for earphones

ONE-THIRD is designed to be a tangle-free and travel-friendly earphone solution by employing magnetic force and geometric arrangement. It also provides convenience for intentional cable arrangement.

While earphones are popular by virtue of their ultra portability, the tangling of cables often causes frustration for their users. Left in the bag or pocket when the user is on the move, tangling results when the cables are twisted into knots caused by the earbuds and audio jack interweaving in and out to create a bird nest of cords. Therefore, a study reveals that the best solution is to bundle the open ends (earbuds and audio jack) together, and that can effectively keep the cables tangle-free.  

Unlike earphones in the current market that mostly rely on additional components such as cable tidies or clips, ONE-THIRD is designed as a standalone measure that can solve the tangling issue. The earbuds and audio jack in ONE-THIRD are designed on the basis of a polygonal relationship, bonding the two seamlessly via strong magnetic force. 

This is a genuine approach to the re-designing of existing earphones – by transforming the factors of form and shapes, and implementing magnetic function to enhance their practicality for users.
