The Turtleneck story

We believe that the best innovations start with good questions.

  •   Why do we do it like that?
  •   Does it really have to be that way?

Therefore, we asked ourselves the following questions:

  •       Why are we accepting earphones that tangle?
  •       Why are there no great solutions for making our earphones stay untangled?
  •       Why are there not any integrated solutions for solving this on our current earphones?

This was our calling! We wanted to solve this irritating problem once and for all.

After testing a bunch of different concepts and solutions, we evolved the product to the eversible Turtleneck sleeve you can get your hands on today. We discovered that tangled earphones could be avoided by keeping them together in a sleeve - making it a single cord. Further, the eversible turtleneck easily “frees” the earphones, making it available for use. Last, but not least, the Turtleneck is made of quality materials and comes in a variety of colors to make it a beautiful accessory.

Turtleneck gives color to the way too common white earphones in addition to keep them tangle free.
