Magneat review: The end of tangled headphones?

Magneat securely holds your headphones even when they're not in your ears. But that's not to say it doesn't create its own problems.


The frenzied tangling of your headphones can make listening to your iPod a stressful and dismaying experience. If your dangly cables keep getting stuck on your belt, coat, or passing animals, Magneat offers an end to this eternal annoyance via a simple and supposedly stylish design.

Fastening to your sweater, scarf, or T-shirt through two strong magnets (one on the inside and the other on the outside of your clothing) the accessory lets you neatly coil the excess length of your headphones around its cotton-reel design and then fix them in place by pulling the loose end through a slot.

Magneat securely holds your headphones even when they're not in your ears, allowing you to wrap the remaining cord around, or simply leave them hanging. That's not to say the gadget doesn't create problems of its own, though.
