About

Do your earbuds keep falling out of your ears? Tired of untangling wires all the time? Do you wish you could have your earbuds in and out of your ears in a matter of seconds between tasks? Do you find yourself replacing damaged and worn out earbuds too frequently? No matter what your situation is, MagClip is an innovative solution for you!

MagClip is a patent pending 2 piece Magnetic Clip system that helps users seamlessly attach earbuds to their clothes. This secures the earbuds and helps prevent them from falling out and from bouncing around carelessly. It also improves the way you interact with your earbuds.

It's very easy to install MagClip to any brand of earbuds. It will stay on your earbuds and you don't need to remove it or worry about losing it.

You no longer need to have them lie around aimlessly when taking short breaks from using them. Simply remove them from your ears without worrying about where they end up! They remain securely attached to your shirt for easy access when you need them again.

Until MagClip, there was no adequate solution to tangled earbuds. Other products are inefficient and impractical as they require clunky pieces to accomplish the simple task of wrapping earbuds together. MagClip secures earbuds with a simple click of magnets.

 MagClip is designed to be compatible with all earbud brands,Below is MagClip on both Apple and Samsung earbuds:

Even if you don't wrap your earbuds as pictured above, MagClip still allows you to prevent tangling of two earbud cords efficiently by securing them together as shown below. This is a great feature to keep your earbuds untangled even when you don't wrap them. 

Colors:

MagClip comes in white, black, blue, pink, and green. Mix and match to your mood or the color of your clothes. Start a new day of the week with a new color! 

We will send you a form to choose your color combinations after the project is funded.

The story:

I am a big music fan and also use my earbuds for talking on the phone. I noticed they kept falling out, getting in the way of my arms, and were an overall nuisance, especially if I wanted to take them out of my ears for a moment. Having worked with strong, rare-earth magnets, I came up with the idea for the MagClip and decided to make one for myself.  After my friends saw me using it, they all wanted one of their own and that’s how I decided to make MagClip for everyone. 

Who am I:

I am a passionate product engineer who is interested in helping society progress through innovative design.  I graduated from The University of Waterloo with a Masters of Science in Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering. 

How the funds will be used:

MagClip has been designed, prototyped, and is ready for manufacturing.  We need the support for plastic injection tooling and for funding the initial resins and high quality magnets in large enough quantity in order to make the final price affordable for the end users of MagClip.

Project Timeline:

We want you to have your MagClip as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

  • November: Make friends in KickStarter and execute a pre-agreement with the manufacturer (which would include a detailed description of the project goals, and a consensus on tools and manufacturing requirements).
  • December: Finalize the tooling purchases and order the initial inventory. 
  • January: Tooling completion, pilot production, quality assurance, and manufacturing initiation.
  • February: Complete manufacturing and ship to you great people!

  • If you support and share only one KickStarter project, please consider ours! Help us by clicking the “Back this project” button at the top of this page, and by sharing our page to help spread the word. Any pledged amount brings us one step closer to our goal, and brings the MagClip one step closer to your earbuds.

    Risks and challenges

    We have been working very hard to bring the MagClip to this stage and with your help we will continue working hard to ensure the quality of the product as well as our supporter’s satisfaction. However, like any engineered product, the MagClip has some small risks: MANUFACTURING: Considering the quality level we are aiming for, tooling and manufacturing will need to be closely monitored to ensure tolerance stack-ups and assembly are correct. Also the tooling process is estimated to take 30 days for this product but any issues on first articles may add a week or 2. Furthermore, the first production run might need some adjustments which would require some additional time for tooling adjustments and a second pilot production run. In order to minimize these delays, we will communicate with the manufacturer to ensure they are on track with our goals on this project. FULFILLMENT: We are working with quality suppliers and manufacturers who have years of experience in procuring and assembling these types of parts. I guarantee our team will work daily to make sure that the best quality MagClips are shipped to you. Customer satisfaction is our primary goal.
