Why Stashcord Works

Stashcord is a fabric sleeve that stays on your earbud cord and is designed to do just one thing really well: keep the tangle-prone ends together and contained, no matter where you smush, stuff or stash them.

Such a simple idea, it might be genius.


The Two Earbud Cords Are the Problem

If you look closely at your tangled earbuds, you will notice something. More often than not, the two earbud wires are what gets tangled. In other words, the two earbud cords are the problem.

We focused on the problem and asked the question, “Is it possible to control the behavior of those two earbud cords?”

The Perfect Length

You can see we put a lot of thought into the design of our fabric sleeve. It is thoughtfully designed to be the length of earbud cords since these are the cords that are the source of frustration. This also keeps the weight to a minimum while maximizing tangle protection.


You will immediately notice the fabric sleeve is soft and free to bend and fold with your cord. Now imagine your headphones are in your pocket or bag. We'll call this the 'stashed' position.

In the stashed position, the sleeve can't move! And if the sleeve can't move, there is no way for the two earbud cords to become tangled.

Straighten out your earbuds and the stashcord is free to effortlessly slide down your headphone cord, making your earbuds ready for hassle-free use.

The label also serves as a clever jack holder, which also forms your headphones into a loop. This makes the rest of your cord extremely resilient to tangles.
