Review: Would You Wear Your Earbuds as a Bracelet?

 Would You Wear Your Earbuds as a Bracelet?

The big problem with headphones and earbuds is what do you do with them when you're not using them. You could wind up the cable and shove them in your pocket, but the folks at Wraps Wearables have a better idea. The Wraps Wristband Headphones (£14.99-£24.99) are designed to be coiled up and worn like a bracelet. The seller is located in the UK, but ships to the U.S.
