      DIY Tangle-Free Headphones with Embroidery Floss. The primary reason I use wireless bluetooth when possible. I had had one or two pair of tangle-free but they are hard to find. I am (was) really tough on wired earbuds, but this may improve longevity too? These are definitely fun and colorful. Could be a good kiddo car trip project perhaps?
