Guru Inspection: Budsock

March 13, 2010 2 comments

I think we’ve all been in a position where we’ve pulled out our headphones from whatever darkness we left them in only to find a rats nest of wire. Sure you can spend a couple of seconds pulling them apart and go on with life. It’s often thought of as one of those ‘things’ you just have to deal with. Well not any more.

Budsock girlBudsock is a small bag like device that keeps your ipod headphones in tangle free bliss. This no frills product does one thing and doesn’t have any quams about it. With a super low price point of $3.99 you can go wrong. Plus those audiophiles who own a lot of headphones get discounts when ordered in lots of 3 at Budsock.com

The question I’m sure everyone is asking is do they work? Yes. But really, did you need a ‘guru’ to tell you that? Here’s the thing, they don’t really work great after you’re wearing them. Honestly I think the time spent dealing with it is almost equal to the time spent untangling your headphones. It’s like you’re adding time onto putting them away to reduce the time you spend taking them out.

My other beef is just how freaking ugly this thing is. It’s like someone bought up all the scrap sail material in a Taiwan sweat shop, sent it to China to be silk screened and sewn into a cone shape. Boring! Nevermind what you’ll look like wearing what I’ve dubbed “headphone gstring” in public. Could you rock these in the gym, or on campus? Granted Ms. Budsock is wearing a very distracting red hat and by the time I make it to her headphones I’m already thinking about something else…but I digress. It’s ugly and so will you be if you wear them. (did I just talk in Yoda speak?)

Guru Inspection rating: Must own for three reasons

  • They’re great at doing what they claim. Keeping headphones from getting all tangled up.
  • The price point is too low to worry about it
  • They offer a FULL REFUND if you’re not happy
