ONE-THIRD / Tangle-free headphones

ONE-THIRD

Discipline: Professional Concept

ONE-THIRD

Discipline: Professional Concept

Unlike earphones in the current market that mostly rely on additional components such as cable tidies or clips, ONE-THIRD is designed as a standalone measure that can solve the tangling issue. The earbuds and audio jack in ONE-THIRD are designed on the basis of a polygonal relationship, bonding the two seamlessly via strong magnetic force. This is a genuine approach to the re-designing of existing earphones – by transforming the factors of form and shapes and implementing magnetic function to enhance their practicality for users.
