Found: Klinggon Headphone Cable Management for Athletes

Klinggon is an upstart company that’s wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign and is in the midst of production of their dual-shot injection molded cord catcher for athletes.

Really, the pic tells the functional story as well as anything, close ups of the product are after the break. It’s a two-piece unit that uses strong neodymium magnets to hold itself in place on your jersey, shirt or whatever. The front piece uses a harder plastic base with softer, grippier silicone to hold the cable snugly.

Retail should be about $30, and they’re targeting late August/early September availability.

The back piece is smooth, so it shouldn’t rub you the wrong way. For cyclists, this could keep your dangling headphone cord from catching on the stem or constantly rubbing your knee.

Seems a little pointless, why not just run you headphones under your t-shirt like we’ve always done?!

agree w/JK. “cable management” which came first? the marketing dept or the sucker? you could run a small strip of adhesive surgical tape on the cable against your chest inside your shirt so the rest of that cable wouldn’t be exposed and dangling. 3 bucks.

30 bucks and the danger of catching my cord on something? Sign me up!

I always go “under-the-shirt”… no snags, no $30 required.
