There’s endless variety when it comes to wired earbuds, but a common issue — whether you’re using a pair of $ 20 earbuds or a $ 200 option — is the cables tangling up. Thankfully, there are a few cases that provide an easy fix for this particular problem. Digital Innovations’ The Nest is a particularly great option as it has a unique design that ensures that your earbuds stay secure.

Our pick

The Nest

The Nest does the job better than most of the other products on this list while costing the same. Its unique design makes it compatible with a wide variety of earbuds, including those with lengthy cables. The silicone design gives it durability and allows for easy cleaning, and the large inner compartment lets you store cables alongside your earbuds.

Runner-up

Budley

The Budley follows in a similar vein as the Nest in that it is made out of silicone and has a wraparound design. There is an interior pocket where you can store your earbuds, following which you tie the cable around the Budley and close it up.

Another great choice

Bluelounge Cableyoyo

Bluelounge is the most recognizable brand on this list, and its Cableyoyo is an elegant solution for tangle-free earbuds. The design allows you to spool and unspool earbuds with ease, and it has a magnetic center that holds the buds securely when not in use. The simple design and high-quality silicon chassis makes it a great alternative for securing your earbuds.

A different take

Spoolee

Th Kickstarter-backed Spoolee is also a decent choice for cord management. It is made out of neoprene and offers a very straightforward way to store your earbuds when you’re not using them. It isn’t a case as much as a cable organizer, but it is small enough to fit into a jacket pocket.

$ 9 at Amazon

Of all the options listed above, The Nest is our pick for its unique design and versatility. It is available in two sizes, can hold a few cables as well, and does a fantastic job protecting your earbuds. For $ 9, you can’t go wrong.
