Sumajin Announces Smartwrap Headphone Cord Manager

picSmartwrap, winner of ID magazine’s Design Distinction award, is a cord manager for headphone cables designed and developed by Sumajin, an industrial design firm in Singapore. You snap the cord into place at one of two places then wrap and snap into place again. Smartwraps come in seven colors and are produced in limited quantities. Sumajin is now accepting orders via email as they get their online ordering system ready. Each Smartwrap is $5 plus $5 shipping and takes up to 14 days to arrive. Sumajin also makes the fun and playful Flex Champion, a small gadget in the shape a person flexing its muscles overhead. It can be used on keychains, bags, zippers, etc. Contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more info. Click ‘Read more’ for photos.

That is so darn useful. I could totally use two or three of those. I wonder why nobody came up with one of those before. Or at least as cool-looking.

Does this come with a clip to clip to your shirt or something so that it doesn’t weigh the earphones down?

Wat does the flex champion do?  The SmartWrap is a great acessories! Better than using rubberbands to shorten the cords on my SONY MDR-300V.

The FLEX is a modern accessory.Its role to to enhence the user’s interaction by attaching it as a visual aid for Keys,Bags and zips…in bright colours and 2 colour mix.

Attach it to places that are hard to find sometimes, Colour your gear.

I use them on my laptop bags on small zippers.Its made of soft elastic material so its very light ,washable and great to hold.

I found out about these yesterday, sent an email to Marcus requesting an order form or instructions for order.  He replied within an hour (I sent my email at 12M PST.  Using the above photos, just let him know how many, what colors, and which items.  He’ll send you an email to confirm what you want, then a PayPal invoice for you to make your payment.  Service was extremely fast, friendly and efficient!  I would assume that they will be inundated with orders for these fun and handy gadgets.  Thanks to Marcus for his great service and I look forward to getting them!

I’ve just received my order of smartwrap! They are great! Light and funky colors. I’ve ordered white, which looks great with my ipod and the other colors green, purple, blue to match my outfit and accessories.  My friends have been asking me where i got it.  It’s the perfect gift for Christmas. Keep up the good work!

They’re currently giving these away with the STM Cocoon (read the review on ipodlounge) for a limited time. They’re really cool!
