Hamilton, Ont. company creates gadget to keep Apple earbuds in your ear
When I go for a run with them, they slip out after the first 20 metres. So I stopped using them, as have many others with the same problem.
An invention from a Hamilton, Ont. based company seems to have found a solution, however.
The plastic “spring” that protrudes off the ends helps keep them secured in the ear. All you have to do is slip them over the earbud – and then it’s music in your ears.
The inspiration for the project came from an intern that the industrial design company had last summer, the Hamilton Spectator reports. The firm’s partners initially gave Dave Mackie a “make-work” project, and then they all came up with the idea.
At first, OHM had trouble getting a fulfillment house on board to help produce the gadget. Now, OHM’s employees are reportedly staying up late packaging up Springclips because demand has been so strong.
The Sprngclips cost $10 and ship for free in Canada and the United States.
