crab / earphone



Unloosing the lines of your earphone or rolling them back after use: this is a tedious routine you have to go through every time you use an earphone. We need a simple, easy way to keep and use earphones, not just a measure to prevent tangling.


“crab” is a suggestion of convenient keeping and using of earphones. The wires of this earphone are composed of multiple modules, which helps prevent tangling. When you are done with your earphone, you can put “crab” together for easy keeping.
