Apple's AirPods get a $10 tether (so maybe you won't lose them)

But then what's the point?

Apple's incoming AirPods are a technical marvel, cramming a load of tech into the same teeny tiny earbud cases that have been packaged with iPhones for years. While we wait to test a pair out for ourselves, accessory makers have wasted no time in correcting possible design faults in Apple's new headphones. Spigen has taken it upon itself to announce a ten-dollar tangle-free strap to keep the 'phones together -- and, well, un-wireless them.

The AirPods Strap is already listed on Amazon and -- patent pending -- is set to ship October 17th, when you'll maybe already fear misplacing one half of the $150 pair. It is very much simply a glorified tether: there's no electronics or wiring inside, but it really does defeat the purpose of the darn things. Almost like a headphone converter.
