Tangle-Free Headphones with Cordskinz + Giveaway!

Ever since I've started hitting the gym on a regular basis I've noticed that a certain something which has bugged me before has become unmanageable. I caught myself losing minutes and minutes of my time while trying to untangle my headphones and losing focus from what I was trying to do. This was especially a nuisance if I was running on a treadmill and a knot was weighing my headphones down. I'm not sure if this varies from headphones to headphones but mine were really a mess. I was intending to purchase new ones but a similar scenario was bound to happen with those as well, sooner or later. I'm into fitness gear and add-ons such as a pouch for my smartphone which would be wrapped either around my arm or waist – that would make the entire running this much easier. I'm a fan of sweatshirts with deep pockets and a zipper so my phone fits and I even saw running shorts with a hidden pocket for your mp3 at Pinterest and though what a brilliant idea that is! I digress but what I was trying to say is that I'm constantly in pursuit of some smart hacks that would make running and working out in general easier. Something rather new and simple yet utterly brilliant has come into my possession and even though it isn't an entirely flawless product (will get to that later) – it really works! Cordskinz is a little something I've been using for a while now, am really happy with  and ready to share my experience. Basically, Cordskinz ($9.99 available to purchase at http://cordskinz.com/) are plastic/rubbery ‘sleeves’ for headphones which keep them from tangling. I think there are 11 colors available and I chose Lime Green for myself as my headphones are white so I thought it would make them pop. 

Jos otkako sam pocela redovno ici u teretanu primjetila sam da nesto sto mi je od ranije predstavljalo problem sada postaje nepodnosljivo. Uhvatila sam se kako gubim minute i minute pokusavajuci otpetljati slusalice i pri tome sam gubila zivce a samim time i fokus na ono zbog cega sam uopste dosla a to je da treniram. Ovaj problem je bio posebno izrazen kada god bih zeljela da trcim na traci kada bih shvatila da mi cvor povlaci i otezava slusalice. Nisam sigurna da li bi ovo variralo ili ovisilo od same vrste slusalica ali moje su postale izvor prilicnih frustracija. Svakako sam namjeravala da kupim novi par ali mislim da bih se ponovo suocila sa isto stvari, prije ili kasnije. Prilicno sam zainteresovana i uvijek sam u potrazi za novom opremom glede trcanja i treninga npr. odavno razmisljam o nabavci neke vrste drzaca za mobitel koji bih pricvrstila oko ruke ili struka – to bi mi umnogome olaksalo stvar. Takodjer uvijek gledam da kupim dukserice sa dubljim dzepovima i rajsfeslusom kako bih tu mogla staviti mobitel dok trcim. Cak sam na Pinterestu primjetila da postoji sorc za trcanje sa skrivenim dzepom za omanji mp3 player sto mi je genijalna ideja! Malo sam odlutala od teme ali ono sto zelim reci jeste da sam uopsteno zainteresovana za otkrice nekih tako zgodnih pomagala koja bi olaksala fizicku zktivnost za nas kojima je muzika dosta bitan faktor u motivaciji. Nesto novo i jednostavno ali ujedno i briljantno mi je dospjelo u ruke te iako se ne radi o potpuno savrsenom proizvodu (doci cemo do toga kasnije) – on ipak radi svoj posao kako treba. Cordskinz je nesto zanimljivo sto koristim vec duze vrijeme, jako sam zadovoljna korisnica i spremna sam podijeliti svoja iskustva sa vama. Cordskinz (kosta cca 18KM i dostupan je za naruciti preko web stranice http://cordskinz.com/) su u biti plasticni/gumeni ‘rukavi’ za zice od slusalica koje sprijecavaju da se iste zapetljaju. Mislim da je dostupno ukupno 11 boja ovog proizvoda a sebi sam odabrala Lime Green neonsku varijantu posto su mi slusalice bijele boje pa sam vec zamislila kako ce ih limeta zelena uciniti zanimljivim.


Within a single unit packaging you get two ‘sleeves’, each being 20cm long (total of 40cm of ‘sleeves’) and a skinner tool which is basically a plastic disc with a cylinder and groove suited for ‘sleeves’ and headphones wires to be adjusted in. Initially I thought the application would be complicated but it's actually extremely simple. You just place your headphone wire in the skinner groove (ear buds and tips facing down), and thread the ‘sleeve’ into the cylinder opening whilst keeping the wires in place with your fingers. Cordskinz are cut down the middle so they open a bit in the skinner making place for wire to slip inside and then they close as the rubber is elastic (keeps wires in place). Using regular scissors you can trim Cordskinz to fit the wires and that's that. I think they do work very well and I truly cannot complain – not a single tangle in sight! However, I do have a few observations – these aren't really flaws but let's call them suggestions to manufacturer's in order to make their product even better. I've noticed that Cordskinz work best on headphones which wires are thin – my original headphones for Samsung Galaxy S5 were a bit tapered and elongated on the sides and they couldn't really fir inside Cordskinz (they protruded a bit). After those simply stopped working (tangles really got to them), I've purchased a second pair, not original Samsung (these are called ‘Pisen’ – never heard of the brand before) and they fit like a glove! I'd also mention that I'd prefer Cordskinz to be even thinner – if the name suggests them to be snug as a second skin to the wire I think they'd peform and feel even better if they were thinner. So, thinner and to maybe come in different sized sleeves – to be able to fit different shaped headphone wires. Other than that, I really am pleasantly surprised by Cordskinz and am keeping them on my headphones 24/7. I'm glad to say that, although it is a USA product, the company ships worldwide (international shipping costs $ 5.49). I have one red pair to giveaway but I'm afraid I'm able to ship only within Bosnia and Herzegovina. Let me know if you've had the chance to try Cordskinz and what do you think of the idea?


Ako narucite jedno pakovanje, unutar koverte cete dobiti dva ‘rukava’, svaki je dug po 20cm (znaci, ukupno je ukljuceno 40cm ‘rukava’) i ‘skinner’ pomagalo koje je ustvari plasticni disk u sklopu kojeg se nalaze lezista za zice od slusalica i Cordskinz. Mislila sam da ce koristenje biti komplikovano ali je nevjerovatno lagano. Samo polozim zicu slusalice (s tim da je bubica slusalice okrenuta niz disk), polozim Cordskinz ‘rukav’ u okrugli otvor u kojem se nalazi i mala plasticna iglica koja rastvori ‘rukav’ – tada sam shvatila da je Cordskinz nista drugo vec po sredini prerezan gumeni ‘rukav’. I kada prolazi kroz otvor tako rasiren ostavlja dovoljno prostora da zica od slusalica upadne unutar njega. On se automatski zatvara cim prodje otvor tako da zica ostaje na mjestu. Obicnim makazama mozete po potrebi skratiti ‘rukave’ i prilagoditi ih obliku i duzini zica vasih slusalica. To je otprilike to i mogu reci da je iznenadjujuce kako ovako jednostavan proizvod funkcionise odlicno. Ipak, imam par ne mozda zamjerki vec sugestija samim proizvodjacima kako da poboljsaju svoj proizvod. Primjetila sam da Cordskinz najbolje funkcionisu na zicama slusalica koje su dosta tanke – originalne slusalice koje dolaze uz Samsung Galaxy S5 su pomalo pljosnate i izduzene sa strana tako da se nisu najbolje uklapale unutar Cordskinza (uvijek bih primjetila izbocinu sa strane gdje je rez). Nakon sto su se te originalne slusalice pokvarile (jednostavno ih je petljanje i lomljenje unistilo), kupila sam nove, univerzalne slusalice (brend je ‘Pisen’, mislim da ih mozete pronaci u svakoj radnji za prodaju mobitela). One su dosta tanke i savrseno se slazu sa Cordskinzom. Takodjer bih spomenula da bi bilo bolje kada bi Cordskinz bio napravljen od jos tanje gume – ako se vec nazivom proizvoda aludira da je poput druge koze zicama od slusalica licno ocekujem da budu dosta tanke i neprimjetne. Znaci, ucinila bih ih tanjim ali bih napravila i oblik unutar ‘rukava’ u par varijanti kako bi odgovarale svim vrstama slusalica. Osim toga, proizvod kao proizvod je funkcionalan, izgleda zanimljivo i prijatno me iznenadio. Drago mi je sto, iako se radi o americkom proizvodu, kompanija vrsi dostavu diljem svijeta (doduse, internacionalna dostava kosta cca 10KM sto nama iz BiH nije bas idealno). Bas zbog toga mi je drago sto imam jos jedan rezervni par Cordskinza u crvenoj boji koji zelim pokloniti nekoj od vas.
