 Klingg Earphone Magnet
Klingg Earphone Magnet

Special to The Miami Herald

How do you keep those little headphones in place while wearing them on the go? Here’s a cool new way. The Klingg Earphone Magnet is a diminutive (1.3 inches by .87 inches) two-piece wearable magnetic system that really gets a hold on you — or rather your clothing. The front piece, worn on the outside of clothing, has a vertical slot in the center into which you press the headphone cable (this can take some finagling with thicker cables). The back piece, worn inside the clothing, holds the front piece in place via powerful neodymium magnets on both pieces. The magnets on the Klingg, which weighs barely an ounce, are so powerful they will hold tight through even thickish jackets. The Klingg comes in eight vibrant two-tone color combinations. Warning: Although the magnets will not affect smartphones or other solid state drives, they can damage hard drive disks (HDD) on computers as well as magnetic strips on credit cards if too close to them. The Klingg should not be used by anyone wearing a cardiac pacemaker.

Klingg Earphone Magnet is about $20. Info:
