Gradient / Earphone Wire


Having to untangle earphone wire, whenever you need to use it, is one of the most common daily challenges which will take time, energy and will leave you in a bad mood!
The concept of this design is to introduce a more convenient way to handle this problem.
“Gradient” is a simple solution that makes untangling the wires easier and quicker because of the color variation.
Wires with a solid color are difficult to untangle since it is hard to know which knot to untie first without making the wire more tangled.
“Gradient” makes it possible to spot the right part to untangle first, by following the color variations going in to the knots.
