Durable, Long Lasting Earbuds
How some heavy duty nylon and beautiful braiding helps make for some of the most durable earbuds around
Making a more durable earbud is one of the key missions of Tweedz. Tweedz Braided Headphones was co-founded by an indie musician and a world traveller, so we know the pain of having gear that wasn't built to last. We've seen our share of worn to shreds wires, so we wanted to make some reliable earbuds that could withstand a little more wear and tear, and that's why Tweedz were born.
The braided wires are inspired by the guitar cables that touring musicians use. The cloth wrapping is 100% braided nylon (a heavy duty fabric known for its durability), so they're tough when they need to be but flexible enough to easily roll up into your pocket (check out our tangle free tip).
Why is nylon so strong? According to ExplainThatStuff!, "Nylon is a polymer—a plastic with super-long, heavy molecules built up of short, endlessly repeating sections of atoms, just like a heavy metal chain is made of ever-repeating links."
So - translation - it's both strong and flexible, and that's why we made it integral to the design of Tweedz.
The work has paid off so far...Tweedz were named one of "The Most Durable Earbuds in 2015" by HeadphonesCompared.com. And we're not stopping there - look out 2016!
Our goal is to make a stronger, longer lasting, more durable headphone because we were tired of earbuds that broke too easily.
We're receiving a lot of great reviews for our sturdy build, but if you do happen to have problems, we stand strongly by our product quality with a one year warranty. And at our price point, it's a no brainer - durable headphones for under $50.
