One other retractable cable, our Stereo Earphones with Retractable Cable, helps avoid iPod and mp3 wires from tangling. Ear buds can knot easily, and sometimes get caught in other objects. Our Stereo Earphones come with a retractable cable that clips onto clothing to prevent any knots or tangles. The cable extends to up to 5 feet, which gives the user plenty of pull, but still offers exceptional sound.
