CordCruncher headphones are made for those who live an active and on-the-go lifestyle and are tired of wasting precious time untangling messy ear buds.

The cord length adjusts from 16 inches to 3.5 feet, allowing the user to take command of cord length. These are quickly becoming the headphones of choice for gym-rats, yogis, golfers, bikers, and more!

CordCruncher headphones also make the perfect travel accessory. No more tangled cords around the airplane seat belt, and are easily stored in carry-on luggage for hassle-free retrieval.
