So happy to have my Nearbuds especially when I'm at the gym. What a cool gadget! Great design and well made too. Thanks!

Magnets are used inside your headphones to create sound, so why not use them on the outside to keep them untangled?
Meet Nearbuds, magnetic earbud clips.
It’s a simple enough concept Why didn’t I think of this? to keep your in-ear monitors organized and out of the way. The magnetic clips are designed for Apple buds, but can possibly be used with other headphones based on their shape. Nearbuds come with three magnetic clips that attach to each ear piece and the audio jack. These magnets are actually strong enough to clip together through denim and other fabrics for easy storage and transport while commuting. Honestly, how many times have you let an earbud dangle out of your ear only to have it snag in a doorway. It hurts having an in-ear monitor forcibly pulled out of your ear canal. Well, Nearbuds will prevent that. The magnets allow users to clip one earbud to the other when not in use.
While working out, the buds can be clipped behind the wearer’s neck for safe storage. The nifty little gadget can also clip to sports bras, collars, you name it. I think my favorite part of the item is not just safe storage, but easy access. The time I spend untangling my wires while waiting for the train is atrocious.
The neodymium magnets are able to adhere to other metal surfaces like lamps or computers – perfect for studying. As simple as the device sounds, there are quite a bit of benefits from properly storing your headphones rather than shoving them into your pocket or purse. Nearbuds can prevent premature tear and safer wear for bikers, runners, commuters, and more.
Wanted to give some feedback. I think the Nearbuds are an amazing product. So much so that multiple people in my office have purchased them following seeing me with them.
I think you dealt with the initial feedback very well and adapted the product to make it as fit for purpose as possible. The result is a great product that you ever so kindly gave to your initial backers free of charge a second time.
Great product, great company and a great CEO.
Thanks for a super gadget for my iPhone. So easy to use and yes, they keep my earbuds near, and safe!
Wow! You sure went above and beyond to honour your commitment to Kickstarter backers of Nearbuds.
My Nearbuds from your first batch arrived on time and work really well. Then you sent me a second set, for free! You wrote it was a gift because there was a problem with a few sets in the first batch you sent out.
My original ones still work perfectly so I gave the gift set to a friend.Now I can’t imagine working out, or gardening, withoutmy Nearbuds.
Thanks for your integrity.
Good luck to you.
