The convenience of a wireless Bluetooth connection over the snarl of headphone cables is obvious, but some manufacturers are still sticking with the tried-and-true wired approach. One such company, Zipbuds, had created zipper-styled, tangle-resistant earphones and has launched the Zipbuds Slide, which feature a zipperless zipper.

Rather than the interlocking teeth zipper design found in the original Zipbuds, the Zipbuds Slide earbuds use a zero-friction slider in conjunction with ridge-and-groove designed cables. This is similar to the mechanism found on resealable Ziploc bags and allows users to separate or bring the cables together by moving the slider up and down, thus helping prevent tangles.

In addition to this patented technology, the Zipbuds Slide feature ZBXi Ultimate Drivers and an angled ear tip that is designed to keep the earbuds comfortable and prevent them slipping out of place when working out. To top it all off, the earphones include an in-line remote with noise-filtering microphone for track control and hands-free calling.

The Zipbuds Slide come in four different colors for US$49.99. Even though each unit has been designed to last with military-grade fibers and protective strain reliefs, the company offers a 50 percent discount if you need to replace a broken pair.

I would like to see someone add this feature to the self retracting mechanism - similar to telephone cords. That would make my day. BTW I have been using the latter type earphones for over a year now. Cost me around $ 5 /- that sound great and "no more tangles" !!!

I love to listen music while I running each morning, but the problem that I have is.. a CORD of earphones, sometimes is just slaps my face while jogging..thought to buy some wireless earbuds, but in doubt which are better , some cost $30, some $150. Dont want to buy something cheap, but also dont want to waste money on something uncomfortable. I found reviews of top Bluetooth earbuds here goo.gl/w8ab1h
