Ever have your headphones on and then got them caught on something while moving, causing them to rip out of your ears? It looks like Skunk Juice earbuds are a solution to this problem. They use the same basic concept that MacBook chargers use, a magnetic connection that comes free when tugged too hard, but with earbuds. This lets them break free easily without damaging the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Not only will the headphones save your connectors and your ears but your computer as well. If you forget you're plugged in and move from your computer quickly the headphones simply unclip without dragging your laptop to the floor, and to its potential untimely demise.
Skunk Juice headphones also let you link together multiple pairs with no other accessories except the headphones themselves, making sharing music simple and without having to surrender one of your earbuds. This is great as long as your friends all have the same headphones.
