earbuds stories

New Orleans, LA — There are Bluetooth stereo earbuds, such as a favorite of mine, the Plantronics BackBeat Go. Then, there are noise canceling headphones, which I'm not a big fan of — earbuds that fit securely cancel ambient noise and have no need for a battery to run. But, since Bluetooth stereo earbuds require batteries to begin with, why not combine the wireless connectivity and noise canceling?
Do you normally toss your earbuds loose in your pocket when you're done using them? If so, you'll know that when you pull them out again, you're going to need five minutes to untangle all of the knots in the cord. These fake ears provide a perfect place to store them, although you just might freak out other commuters as you put them away.
