earBuddy carrying case stores iPod earbuds

imageSendStation Systems today announced the earBuddy carrying case for Apple’s white iPod earbuds. The compact case is built with ballistic nylon and features an ABS frame on the inside to easily wind up the cable and store the earphones. The product has a detachable keyring and was built to withstand 200 lbs. of force. The company also said that while the earBuddy was designed specifically for the Apple earbuds, it can still hold many other brands as well. The earBuddy comes in two color schemes—a silver and black version with orange zipper and an all-black version. It’s expected to ship later this month. SendStation said that pricing has not yet been determined.

Does anyone know if these will work with the Sony EX-81’s? Those ear hooks seem like they wouldn’t fit inside, but it’d be awesome to have an actual case for mine.

It’ll be reasonably priced and we will throw something in, which makes it a very sweet deal. Details soon.

Wow! Nice to have a representative on the boards - let alone the CEO!
And nice worldwide shipping price. Its the shipping that normally stops me from ordering from the States as any saving goes immediately out of the window, and in some circumstances makes it more expensive than the UK equivalent (although normally its just not available here yet).

I’ll be ordering as soon as they are released!

When are you guys going to make a input dock for the Bose Sounddock? One of the guys at your company said you are developing it. Your quality of your docks are as if they were made by apple. So I am praying for the input dock to be made. Plus it would work with all dock connecting accessories. In theory anyway.

Size—- It is way smaller than it might appear from the picture. Like our PocketDocks, it has been designed as small as possible. Even if you do not attach it by the keyring, it does a great job protecting your earbuds (e.g. to unthoughtfully throw it into your backpack).

3rd party earbuds—- Yes, it has been designed specifically for the iPod earbuds, but it works with many other earbuds as well. Cable length isn’t an issue. There’s still some room left.

Price—- We at SendStation put a lot of brainwork into our products. Anything less than perfect is not acceptable for us. The feedback we get from our customers shows that they are happy to reward our passion, allowing us to stay in business and to bring cool new stuff to the community. As our CEO has stated above, earBuddy will be reasonably priced and will come with a nice bonus, everyone of you will like.

Um, they’re freakin earbuds. Not even good ones at that. They fit nicely in pockets. I’ve lost many-a-pair because they’re just so small. Why have a huge case for them? The logic has been entirely lost on me.

By the way many of my apple earbuds have been smashed (ok, more like broken) but they go back together easily without any actual damage to them. I don’t think a case is needed for them. Expensive ones definitely, cheap ones, no way. Besides I thought companies like Shure and the like pack cases in with their products?

Posted by Mondayne on September 17, 2005 at 2:27 AM (CDT)


I like the look of these but I have the Shure E5C’s and would like to know if they might fit this case?

I’m getting a set of Etymotic ER-6i’s and would like to know if they will fit in this sweet case.

Does the earBuddy hold typical in-ear type headphones?
